Tempel Ov Blood - S/T
I got the new batch of fallow field tapes last night, and although someone beat me to posting the excellent carved cross tape, this debut demo from tempel ov blood is completely different but no less enthralling.
this whole tape is exactly what I look for in non-extreme music - melancholy, heartbreaking, beautiful. it's only sixteen minutes long, but feels much longer - and I mean that in the best way possible.
unfortunately, I know nothing about this band, or artist, as the case may be. searching the internet reveals this site, which bears the same sigil as this cassette's j-card, but I can't tell if they're the same entity.
regardless, I hope to hear more from this mysterious outfit soon. I'd be surprised if this tape doesn't find a place on one of my end-of-year lists for 2014. and this should go without saying, but pick this up from fallow field as soon as possible, as it's miraculously still available. in fact, pick up all of the tapes that are still in stock - you won't regret it.
