Over here at CVLT Nation, we try to do our best to keep it honest. So on the honest tip, I have been a fan of TEMPTER since I first heard their QCHQ debut. If you don’t believe me, just read my words below to see for yourself! Today, I want y’all to check out their blistering NYC full set that was captured by Loading Video Archive (one of our favorite NYC videographers). If y’all don’t have the TEMPTER debut 12 inch, do the right thing and get it NOW (EU & NA)!
The sonic apocalypse is upon us and it comes in the form of the new self-titled record from TEMPTER! On all levels, this crossover metal and hardcore offering pushes my wig back, and more than that, it’s highly fucking addictive! The way that these songs are mixed plus the way they sound is UNREAL and the vocals cut the wall of noise against unrelenting feedback. TEMPTER’ creates these moments of Dirge that also rock HARD AF. On the real, I get chills every time I play this record, and with each listen, I wish that it had more songs. As a debut, this band has knocked it out of the park further than I could ever imagine! Let me say this — if Killing joke, Zygote, Nausea, and Anti Cimex came together to create a band it might sound like TEMPTER. That being said this band is creating from such a place of passion that they sound like no other! When I hear anthems like “Night Terror” I know the war against our downpressors will be won by us!
