Temple Of Void are a band from Michigan that plays an occult mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Of Terror And The Supernatural" which will be released in September by Rain Without End Records.
A very dark and heavy old school death metal sound starts off the album along with some deep growls and after awhile clean playing is added into certain sections of the recording as well as elements of doom in the slower parts of the bands musical style and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the bands musical sound.
The solos and leads the band uses are very dark and melodic sounding and there is also a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts throughout the recording and the band sticks mostly to a 90's style of doom/death metal while the production makes the music sound more modern day and a few tracks are very long and epic in length
As the album progresses high pitched screams can be heard in certain sections of the recording. along with a small amount of atmospheric sounds and after awhile acoustic guitars as well as a short instrumental are added in briefly which use both finger picking along with a 70's progressive rock feeling to enhance the bands dark and heavy approach to metal and one of the alter tracks shows the band bringing in a brief use of spoken word parts.
Temple Of Void remain true to their mixture of doom and death metal making their music sound a lot more darker and heavier as well as displaying a great amount of progress as musicians, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, supernatural and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Temple Of Void and if you are a fan of doom and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Embalmers Art" "Invocation Of Demise" and "Exanimate Gaze". 8 out of 10.
