Temple Of Dread
TEMPLE OF DREAD stay true to their old school course on the fourth full-length "Beyond Acheron". At the same time, the East Frisians have added more dark and heavy parts as well as a healthy dash of melancholic feeling – and even black metal inspired moments.
Guest-contributions by former MORGOTH and INSIDIOUS DISEASE vocalist Marc Grewe and GOD DETHRONED's Henri Sattler add a spicy extra. Lyrically, the band's friend and word-smith, psychologist Frank Albers, has again delivered intelligent gory texts that revolve around antique myth and history featuring protagonists such as Icarus, Vulcan, Hades, Cleopatra, and Marcus Antonius. This is also reflected in the cover artwork of "Beyond Acheron", which has been created by celebrated Italian artist Paolo Girardi and depicts Charon, the ferryman of the Greek underworld Hades.
The massive production of "Beyond Acheron" comes courtesy of TEMPLE OF DREAD drummer Jörg Uken and his Soundlodge Tonstudio, where among many other acts DEW-SCENTED, GOD DETHRONED, OBSCENITY, SUICIDAL ANGELS, and WARPATH have previously recorded albums.
