Temple of Dagon will release their four-track EP, Revelations of the Spirit, on June 6th, but until then you can get rowdy to their latest single, “The Wandering Spirit,” at Invisible Oranges. About the track, the band said:
It’s about somebody who forgot their own self-worth and purpose in life, leading them to seek validation through external sources.
Whatever it’s about, it’s rough, loud, riff laden, and heavy!
About Temple of Dagon:
Influenced by ’90s-era crust, stenchcore, death metal, thrash metal, and Lovecraftian lore, Temple of Dagon was forged in 2009, and quickly reaped an underground following with the release of their clobbering Book of Azathoth EP. Following a glut of shows and various personnel changes, the band went on to record and self-released their 2010 debut, Rituals of the Deep. Further blending their crust, punk, thrash, and death metal roots with a heavy dose of d-beat and blasts, the record earned further adulation from hordes in the know with Thrash Head commending the band’s “pure fucking brutality,” further offering, “this is not only energetic and angry, but even aesthetically melodic with bridging riffs in all the right places! And the vocal dueling going down is heavy, aggressive protestation… This is truly sick!”
Revelations of the Spirit will be unleashed on June 9th, 2015 digitally and on 10″ vinyl via Black Voodoo Records with pre-orders to be announced in the coming weeks.
In conjunction with the release, Temple of Dagon will raze the stages of a dozen cities beginning with an official record release show on June 6th. The following week the band will bring their diseased psalms to Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Madison, Chicago, New Orleans, Austin, and Phoenix, as well as Cruststock 2015 in Anaheim with additional live trauma to be announced soon.
