Norwegian formation Tempel released their self titled album about a year ago. But, this year they gave it up for a larger market and rereleased the album via Jansen Records.
Kvelertak drummer Kjetil Gjermundrod formed the band together with his brothers and childhood friend. If you are aware of what Kvelertak does, then it may not be too much of on what to expect from this release as well. Quite dark but with a steady dos of Hard Rock the band is not to be taken too easily. They guys state themselves to not take it too seriously which is perhaps a bit of an understatement. Obviously this album is made in a free mode, doing what comes up and not thinking too long about it. A straightforward release it makes but when being halfway the tracklist you have the feeling you are listening to a track you heard before. Not that much new it is. Maybe, to mention one song, you can have a look at “Torches”, it is having something catchy and therefore sticks out a bit more.
So, if you like Kvelertak then this release is a good addition to your collection. It is the same idea, maybe a bit harsher approach but also the same feel in references. The album could have had a bit more of a face of it own for my face, but if something good multiplies, many are satisfied as well.
