After having deeply explored the different aspects of Crowley’s philosophy on their previous releases “Iao Sabao” and “Lucifer Leviathan Logos”, Norwegian occult heavy metal band MAGISTER TEMPLI returns with its second full length, “Into Duat”, in which they focus thematically on some of the central myths and gods of the Egyptian Mythology (“Duat” is the realm of the God Osiris).
As in their 7’’ “Nyarlathotep” from 2014, the band has moved even further away from their doom-inspired beginnings, towards a more open-minded musical experience strongly based on filthy traditional heavy metal. Heavy guitars, intense drumming and authoritarian, preaching vocals are key ingredients.
The album is recorded in Oslo between Evil Octopus and Sorcerer studios, with former band member Simon Aarset as technician. The cover painting is done by the German painter Stefan Bleyl.
“Into Duat” will be released by the end of August, followed by a strong live campaign which will bring the band to play at the No Sleep Til Dublin Festival 2015 and afterwards on an European tour with Christian Mistress.
