Genreless and capable of mood-altering powers akin to the most powerful halluconegenics on earth, Today Is The Day‘s Temple Of The Morning Star is as unique an example of fearless escapism and boundary-less art as you could ever experience.

Spanning the entire spectrum of human emotion, Temple Of The Morning Star‘s primal beats and split-personality dynamics engorge the listener in true cathartic torture as Steve Austin utilises every possible musical facet at his disposal. Samples, jazz-fusion jiggery-pokery, hammer-and-anvil guitars, Eastern-tinged interludes and emotionally wrought melody bleed through the mix; each track on this kaleidascopic opus contradicting the last.

An open mind, or one set free with the use of mind-altering substances, is needed to truly experience the sheer wealth of ideas on display here. A fearless record released by a fearless label.

About Chris Jennings (1986 Articles)
I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/

  1. Through Silver In Blood is a truly terrifying listen that leaves you feeling drained after playing it. Heavy in every sense of the word.

    Saw them in Belfast when the album came out as support for Entombed. The crowd was just transfixed on the stage for the duration of their set, poor Entombed didn’t stand a chance coming on after them.

    Incantantion – Onward to Golgotha?

  4. Great list, but I’d add Incantation, Burnt by the Sun, Coalesce, and Necrophagist.
