Temple Of Baphomet are a band from Denmark that plays a very dark, raw and primitive form of ritualistic satanic black metal and this is a review of their 2011 ep "In Morbid Fascination Of Sathan" which was released by Satanic Deathcult Productions.
Drums range from mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown in at times, while the keyboards when they are utilized they bring a very dark, evil, ambient, atmospheric and ritualistic sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very strong and powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw, evil and primitive sounding mixed in with some dark sounding melodies and a brief use of thrash style riffing while the lead guitars are very primitive sounding black metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly high pitched and grim sounding black metal screams that have a depressive feeling to them at times mixed in with some clean singing, Gregorian chanting and spoken word ritualistic passages as well as a brief use of demonic sounding growls, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Black Magick, Left Hand Path, Occultism and Rituals, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Temple Of Baphomet are a very great sounding ritualistic raw and primitive satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Call From The Distant Stars" and "Confronting The Hidden Archetypes". RECOMMENDED BUY.
