Instru-metal duo TEMPEL streams new 12-minute epic 'Descending Into The Labyrinth'
With just under three weeks until the release of their sophomore effort "The Moon Lit Our Path" – lauded in the current issue of Decibel as "aggressive, cinematic, mulit-hued metal" – the Arizona-based instrumental duo TEMPEL have unveiled a second track from the new album. Via Noisey, you can now stream their 12-minute epic "Descending Into The Labryinth" below:
After self-releasing their enthralling debut "On the Steps of the Temple" (which Prosthetic reissued to great acclaim in 2014), TEMPEL have spent the past two years further developing their enchanting blend of progressive, black, death and post-metal influences to create the five impassioned tracks featured on "The Moon Lit Our Path." The album, scheduled for release via Prosthetic Records on June 16, will be offered on CD and a limited-edition gatefold 2LP (including black and 180-gram clear variants) that showcases its wonderfully intricate album artwork by Lucas Ruggieri (Kylesa, Dragged Into Sunlight). Pre-order yours now. Digital pre-orders, which also include an instant download of the new song "Carvings in The Door," are also available at iTunes, Amazon MP3 and Bandcamp. Last week, TEMPEL guitarist Ryan Wenzel unveiled a play-through video for that song; check it out here.
