1 - ATAVISMO - INERTE - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Progressive power trio, ATAVISMO, have today announced details of their upcoming sophomore album, entitled Inerte. The five-track album will be released on April 7, via Temple of Torturous Records. Hailing from Spain, and with a critically acclaimed debut album, Desintegracin, already under their belts, ATAVISMO are exploring new territories with their second full length release. Breaking away from the space rock jams of their debut, ATAVISMO have maintained a psychedelic edge, only this time around the evolution of the band is reflected in their more compact, progressive sounds. The writing process starts with a jam session - as many great creations have - before a firmer structure is applied to the songs. Lysergic lyrics revolve around soulful feelings, love, and bad dreams which the band describe as "existential poetry". The result, among other things, is a submersion into the Andalusian rock legacy of the legendary band Triana, without losing sight of more current means of understanding psychedelic or progressive rock from bands like Black Mountain, Wolfpeople or Motorpsycho. Already considered one of the most exciting and eclectic bands emerging in their home country, Inerte looks set to secure ATAVISMO similar acclaim world wide.

5 - BELOW THE SUN - ALIEN WORLD - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


The Russian four piece return with another progressive and atmospheric record that is ambitious as it is heavy. Alien World is based on the science fiction novel Solaris by Stanislaw Lem; a 1961 tale that explores the nature of human memory in the context of complex communications between human and non-human life forms. The non-human life form that is at the centre of the story is an oceanic planet which is capable of bringing human memories into a physical form. The pelagic themes explored within the music on Alien World continues into the album artwork, which depicts an alternative view of the ocean.The album was recorded at two different studios in the bands home town of Krasnoyarsk, Siberia. No synthesisers or samplers were used during the recording; all sounds were made by guitars, bass, drums and vocals, with some later processed by effects pedals. The band has built layer upon layer of audio explorations, with clear overtones of black metal in the bleak soundscapes, oppressive doom, and swirling, atmospheric metal.

TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


BELOW THE SUN came together from Krasnoyarsk, Russia, with release their debut album Envoy via Temple of Torturous Records. An album with six epic lengthy tracks rooted in sludge and funeral doom, but with progressive aspects very much reaching upwards to an ethereal, otherworldly plane.

7 - ECHTRA - PARAGATE - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


"Echtras Paragate", an essay of origins, is a psycho-physiological journey into the Otherworld. This aural chronicle of the souls flight from corporality issues from the Land before spiraling down into the heart of Earth, in the process loosening the stranglehold of dislocation modern humans labor under. Echoes of the Hunter stalking the prey of meaning ring out in the caverns of Spirit while arcane dances commence by the fireside; the chthonic depths offer their healing flame to our essence. After plumbing the lengths of these tunnels he is risen to the Heavens, taking flight in order to fully embody the liberty written in our blood. Above and Below make love in the flesh of the Seeker, engorged with breath and bearing the weight of the sweetest fruit. Obliterating genre conventions in favor of the creation of an immersive soundworld, "Echtras Paragate" integrates the distortion and vigor of Black Metal sonics with the resolve and earthiness of acoustic songcraft. Arpeggios swirl in etheric spirals, augmenting and negating each other in a dance of intimateness, rhythms altering and disappearing altogether as they herald of the stations of the Seekers peregrination. Chronicled in the long ago of MMVI, performed Yule MMVII, and now issued on CD from the dark of Winter MMXI by Echtra & Temple of Torturous, as dictated by the Spirits and for the benefit of all beings. This rite of transits facilitates rest, a trust in the truth of Life. ".for only by becoming completely and totally gone are we to be found."- 4pp digisleeve on heavy black carton (Keaykolour Antique, 350gsm)- Printed with dark gold ink- Debossing made on band logo as well as some texts

8 - ECHTRA - SKY BURIAL - (C+D) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Echtras "Sky Burial," the first issuance in the triumvirate of the Passage Cycle, is an exploration of the dissolution of our mortal coil. If human consciousness recognizes the inescapability of its own demise, then an essential aspect of becoming truly human is grappling with the inevitability of our own death. This is what Echtra has sought with the "Sky Burial" project, attempting at the same time to create an aural and visual space in which others may do the same. Influenced by the Vajrayanas cosmological views on the passaging of consciousness between lifetimes, and utilizing the sonic palette of acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, drums, and vocals, this project is undoubtedly Echtras most fully realized manifestation thus far. Aesthetic echoes of doom and black, acoustic arpeggios driving spirit into form, sparse vocalizations uttering the manifesto of an unqualified acceptance of eventual transformation: these are some of the tools employed in service of the souls embrace of a body consumed by the winged ones.For the first time, audial documentation has been augmented by video, depicting the one and only performance of "Sky Burial," offered on December 19th, 2008, as the final offering of the first night of the Spire: A Twilight Language Yule gathering in Olympia, Washington, USA. Echtra was joined for this performance by Lina McLean, Johnny Delacy, and Steve Joyner/CoRE. The video footage from this live performance has been licensed for this release from Adam Torruella.Written and recorded in the long ago of Litha MMVII, and mastered by Mell Dettmer near Lughnasadh MMXII, it is now issued by ToT for the benefit of all beings.

9 - ETERNAL DEFORMITY - NO WAY OUT - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Always changing, always evolving. Poland has long been at the forefront of the extreme metal scene, and Eternal Deformity have been testing its limits since the mid 90s. From the doom- and Gothic-slanted leanings of their early material to the circus-themed nightmare of Frozen Circus and sympho-blackened traits of The Beauty Of Chaos, this group have drawn from the widest of infuences in their continual search for new boundaries. To quote vocalist Przemyslaw Kajnat on their sound: "Some people tried to describe it as "art death" or "prog gothic metal". These opinions display both the variety of our ways of expression and the great number of sources that inspire us in the process of creation. However, the musicians have never forgotten about their roots."Artistic yet extreme, Eternal Deformity's new album No Way Out is in some ways a blend of the elements above, but this is no retread. The sound is as fresh as ever, with Kajnat delivering a range of demented blackened snarls and Arcturian cleans. "Esoteric Manifesto" opens with an almighty stomp before later swirling in a maelstrom of bombastic keyboards and technical guitar work, while "Mimes And Ghouls" recalls some of that carnival atmosphere and "Glacier" is a grand finale for No Way Out, as the band wind down into frozen wastelands.FOR FANS OF: Enslaved, Arcturus.

10 - FYRNASK - BLUOSTAR - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


"...only our husks are here. The skies above us are frost. Even the stars here shrivel with coldness. Only shadows on gaunt horses that cross the empty landscapes with empty bellies and quivers full, and their eyes full of envy and hate. We are left to wander at the worlds dizzying edges..."Musically, "Bluostar" can be best described as a combination of classic black metal rooted from the harsh landscapes of Northern Europe together with an eerie ambience which can be only witnessed in the darkest rites from primeval times. To quote a reference, FYRNASKs debut is a perfect mixture of Paysaga Dhiver and Fauna!

11 - IC REX - VALONKANTAJAN ALKEMIA - (LP) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Valonkantajan Alkemia is primarily an audial, aetheric manifestation of the Absolute, Silent Void.The Modus Operandi of this both humble and noble work is from the artists part not meant for amusement, for simple, unimportant and shallow entertainment, or for sudden fligths of fanciful chimeras.From the very beginning one is expected to leave the yoke of the sick human condition behind, in the intent to be truly One with the help of the Forbidden Medicine. This album is meant to be a meditative and transformative, a metamorphic experience. Initiatory, if you will. It is naturally for you to decide, whether this piece of Sacred Black Art succeeds in this noble purpose.We have avoided the luring temptation to correct small playing mistakes and atonalities with the help of modern technology in order to keep the alchemical process intact and alive, and for the Black Magic to remain in a vital and effective state. None of this is said to burden the listener with stupid, pre-conceived notions of what one is ought to find from the album, nor is it meant to infuse stone hardened dogmas or impose vain, personal ideologies that matter very little to none in the esoteric scheme of things. Quite the contrary, one who will delve more deeply into the secrets that this album for its own part reflects, is expected to question everything, and not to believe anything without personal experience. It is confirmed by the Hermetic Masters that they have never written for any other than to themselves and to their collegues.That is certainly not the result of artificial and shallow pride, but instead proceeds from the fact that the mind of the ignorant should not be confused. With the same intention, my brothers and sisters of the Luciferian Nightside, I present this piece of spagyric art for you, so that it could help you in your own endeavours towards transcendent Self Mastery.Dont fool yourselves in the light of this knowledge. Silentium est Aureum, Silence is Golden. Only in inner tranquillity, in the deserts of the mind, the voice of The Silent God may manifest its Self for the seeker.VINYL SPECS:- Gatefold DLP w/ 8pp booklet- Completely re-mixed and re-mastered for the vinyl version to increase the possibility of metanoia in the consciousness of the initiates and listeners- 2 exclusive bonus tracks- A3 poster- 400 copies in black made

TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS

17 - NEBELUNG - MISTELTEINN - (LP) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


When ten years ago Nebelung released its debut Mistelteinn on the now defunct Dresden label Eislicht - known for its genre defining releases in neofolk -, it received wide attention despite all its technical imperfections. Through the haze of a band taking its first steps into acoustic music and singing, the album seemed to manifest a nature mysticism as pure and heartfelt as it is seldom experienced. Sold out since half a decade, and never rereleased, the album now finally gets a new treatment. Completely rerecorded, and partially rearranged, the songs on Mistelteinn are presented here in a new light. The delicacy of the picked guitars, the mournful melancholy of the cello, and the matured and warm sonority of the voice reveal the craftsmanship Nebelung has acquired over the decade of its existence. Where the official release revealed merely a glimpse of its beautiful and pristine wilderness, this rerelease finally pulls the listener deep into its world, singing natures hymn, clear and unimpeded. Mistelteinn is released by Temple of Torturous on white vinyl in an edition of 300 copies.

18 - SOON - VOL.1 - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


With its debut LP, SOON forges an unlikely hybrid of dark doom and heavy psychedelics, conjuring low-end storms and balancing mettle with melodic finesse. Rather than using low, slow riffs as dredging sinkholes, the Chapel Hill, N.C. quartet keeps its strong forward pushes devoid of any dead weight. Recorded with engineer Kris Hilbert (Torch Runner, Between the Buried And Me, The Body) at the helm, SOON, whose members also contribute to The Love Language, Bitter Resolve and Grohg, draws from a deep well of influence and experience in crafting this intricate balance of power and grace, without sacrificing its titanic heft.

23 - ULTAR - KADATH - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Ultar is a five-piece band from the heart of Siberia, Krasnoyarsk town, that is placed amidst the howling woods and red mountains. Found in 2011 under the other name, Deafknife, as a post-black metal act, the band reborn in 2016 with the new name, new approach and epicly atmospheric sound. The conceptual six track album "Kadath" consists of four songs with ten-minute average duration and two short instrumental ones. Its sound can be described as a mixture of post-black metal with a monumental post-metal sound, and airy and melodic shoegaze, filled with melodies of both desperation and rejoice, supplemented by inserts of wind instruments, choir and piano. The album is a journey of a young man to the Kadath - Lovecraftian divine City of Gods, hidden in the Land of Dreams. As the legends say, no man reached Kadath, and no one can surely tell you, reather it is real or not. But more than that, it is also a lifetime journey through the deeps of our souls and minds, covert passions and emotions, the great search of ourselves and our inner freedom that will light the way. The album received finishing touches courtesy of mastering engineer, Mell Dettmer, who counts Sunn o))), Fyrnask, Earth and Below The Sun among her previous clients.

24 - VALBORG - ROMANTIK - (CD) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


German-based dark, primitive metal trio, VALBORG, will unleash their fifth full-length opus via Temple Of Torturous. Titled Romantik, the follow-up to 2012s Nekrodepression, which Last Rites commended for being consistent with VALBORGs "tradition of strange, compelling German music," further lauding their "patient, measured aggression," features six tracks of somber avant blackened beauty. After four albums based around experimental, skull-crushing doom, with Romantik VALBORG dives deeper into the heart-tearing atmospheres of the abyss of which theyve so boldly explored. Ambient synthesizers collide with wistful guitars, all slowly, purposefully floating above a foundation built upon pummeling rhythms, the bands harsh, German vocal inflections adding further terror their profoundly bleak funeral power doom. Fans of Type O Negative, Vangelis, Killing Joke and Celtic Frost/Triptykon pay heed.

26 - VAMPILLIA - ALCHEMIC HEART - (LP) 
TEMPLE OF TORTUROUS


Alchemic Heart is a special project presented by Vampillia who have colored these two collosal compositions with beautiful contributions by members of the Boredoms, Jarboe (ex-SWANS), Inswarm and Japanese Noise-God MERZBOW. Layered strings, piano, bass, noise and voices are weaved mysteriously and expand as two magnificently parallel aesthetic worlds. Comprised of two pieces, Sea/Land, a primitive landscape is created via listening and destroyed when the pieces are complete. Vampillia, much like the Boredoms, absorb rock, noise, modern composition, experimental music & pop and explode it out as hardcore spirit music. They hail from Osaka, Japan and are a brutal orchestra with three distinct vocalists backed by twin violins, piano, twin guitars, bass, turntables, Toyohito Yoshikawa on drums as well as Tatsuya Yoshida and Kazuhisa Chikada.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Sea 02. Land
