Temple Nightside are the opposite of that old saying: 'there's light at the end of the tunnel'. With 'Condemnation' this Oz duo is saying that there's no light and the tunnel is out of the question.
Favorite track: 6. Ascension of Decaying Forms.
Evil ritualistic rumblings escaped from weird passages in the Earth. Listening to Temple Nightside is like sticking your ear to the ground right above a crypt in which robed people chant and things move that should not. Sheer necro bliss.
Released on CD & Vinyl by Nuclear Winter Records (Greece) and Dark Descent Records (USA)
Description by Nathan T. Birk:
Hailing from the currently untouchable Australian black metal scene, the mysterious TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE remain rooted in the blackest arts whilst performing the ancient Metal of Death, self-described as "Ritualistic Death Metal Necromancy." And indeed, that's precisely what the Oz duo offer up on their highly anticipated debut album, Condemnation. Churning, gnawing, throbbing, Condemnation is blackened DEATH-fucking-METAL with its soul ripped asunder. Each strike upon stretched animal skin and amplified barbed wire, each slice of atmosphere forever descending, each cacophonous bellow from depths unknown - all are in service to infernal forces beyond human comprehension. TEMPLE NIGHTSIDE give you the keys to your Condemnation.
