22 March 2006

At long last we have received the Naer Mataron track for their split EP with Voice of Hate. It was delayed for some time, but the resulting track – “Chaos Disruption” has proved to be worth every minute of the wait. It is one of the best tracks Naer Mataron have ever written. Production is therefore ready to start on the NAER MATARON/VOICE OF HATE split EP, limited to 666 copies (TOD003).

News from the Beastcraft and Orcrist camps in Norway and Italy is that the bands are in the final stages of preparation before entering their respective studios to record two tracks each for their Split 7” EP.  Beastcraft's “Celebration of Christ's Death” and Orcrist's “Black Destroyer" will then be recorded during April.

All the followers of mythical Austrian band SUMMONING, fans of the epic Black Metal and fans of the JRR Tolkien saga (The Lord of the Rings)are on lucky. It is now official! Licenced by Napalm Records, Temple of Darkness will be releasing the first three albums of SUMMONING in a special edition. Since their first release Lugburz, Minas Morgul and Dol Guldur are albums that have been crying out to be released in a special format, and the proposed Triple Picture LP Boxed Set will, at long last, truly do justice to these epic works. This is likely to become a much sought after collectors item very quickly. We are now working to keep the same original awesome Summoning´s layout. This stuff will be released on a strictly limited edition to 1000 triple picture LP boxed set


7 March 2006

Temple of Darkness have closed a deal with two great underground Black Metal bands - Beastcraft (Norway) and Orcrist (Italy) to release a split 7” EP. Both bands are well known for their uncompromising attitudes when it comes to the true Black Metal sound, and are currently working on producing two tracks each for what is likely to emerge as a raw and brutal work. Beastcraft have a working title of “Celebration of Christ's Death” which gives some indication of how uncompromising they intend to be, whilst Orcrist are back to their original, and strongest, line-up, and are writing two new tracks which are already sounding ice cold and dark as the pits of Hell.


3 March 2006
