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 Egyptian Mythology (“Duat” is the realm of the God Osiris).
Into Duat is targeted for release at the end of August, followed by an active 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. Into Duat was recorded in Oslo between Evil Octopus and Sorcerer studios, with former band member Simon Aarset as technician.
As in their vinyl 7” release Nyarlathotep (2014), the band had 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 commanding vocals are key ingredients.
