𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: The riffage are split into two sections, the first part is acute, slow, raw repetitive, cold atmospheric (privative) riffs, halfway through the album the riffs end up faster, heavier, raunchy and brutal… with melodically parts
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: A combination of shrieks/raspy vocals (halfway through the album, the listing shall account deep low whispering vocals) that is soaked in pure - cold – evil, full of hate & despair
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: With truly malefic drumming, the listener will find that the drums are a mixture of two parts, with the first section, playing a slow to mid-tempo beats, then moving onto an extreme, faster drumming
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: A album to listen to, very carefully, this album (to me) the arrangement of this album, are possible split into two halves. The whole album feels like a concept album.
side A: telling of someone offering themselves as a sacrifice? side B: Traitorism!!!
The Hills are alive with the sound of
traitorism, sacrifice and denial
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: Reminiscent of old-school back metal, Dark, Malefic, Epic and Awe-inspiring
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: The whole album, clocking over forty-five minutes of eight pure evil tracks, that are split into halves. Temple is in their own league, an impressive debut from beginning to end
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: none !!!
