Midlands based Temple Of Lies first came to light in 2010, honing their skills on the road and blitzing venues up and down the country with their brutal sound. Overcoming a couple of line up changes early on in the band’s existence, they’ve now consolidated their hugely talented line up and took the decision to rework a few of the tracks from their debut album ‘Monumental’ and put them onto ‘From Sand’, to reflect the far heavier, more mature sound they now have.
With ‘From Sand‘, they’ve released an album that’s a bit of a monster, a huge slab of raw, rasping stoner/doom styled heavy rock, urged relentlessly onward by vocalist Si Shaw’s roar. There are no punches pulled, no slick tricks here just honest, full on & fabulous bruising tracks belted out in their own inimitable style!
The band’s highly energetic live show delivers both musically and visually, entertaining audiences wherever they play and they are first and foremost a live band at heart, always will be. Temple Of Lies have recently supported the likes of XII Boar, Kyrbgrinder, Stormbringer, One Machine and their profile is growing fast so you’re going to be seeing a lot more of these guys!
‘From Sand’ was produced & mixed at ‘The Paddocks’ studio by Ross Hillard and Temple Of Lies, mastered at ‘Safe And Sound’.
