Saturnalia Temple Sets New Album Release Date

Today The Ajna Offensive sets April 7th as the North American release date for Saturnalia Temple's second album, "To the Other." The label had this to say:

"Saturnalia Temple is black magic metal, a dark spiritual vortex rooted in heavy and hypnotic sounds, a pure voice of the Draconian magical tradition now further harnessed with To the Other.

"As a band that moves intently and without compromise, this recording and production was done in their own studio, Sitra Ahra, located in the forests outside Uppsala, Sweden.

"Since its release, Saturnalia Temple's critically acclaimed Aion of Drakon debut took the band to numerous major festivals throughout Europe, including Roadburn, Hell’s Pleasure, and Heavy Days in Doomtown, as well as on tours in both the U.S. and Europe.

"The strong occult and dark magical backbone is more prevalent than ever on To the Other, and as a band that actually started before the current 'occult rock' trend, there are no fetishistic hoods, blood, or pentagrams. To The Other is instead a relentless journey through the downfall of the world and the rise of the individual striving against the grain.

"As a title, To The Other signifies that it is a gift from the band to both the Other Side and to all that is in the shadows, the other side of existence, that which has been neglected by the everyday world of light. American drummer Tim Call (Alderbaran, Howling Wind, Nightfell) brings his experience and power to Saturnalia Temple on this recording. The cover art was created by Manuel Tinnemans (The Devil's Blood, Deathspell Omega, Necros Christos)."

Saturnalia Temple Recording New Album

Saturnalia Temple is now working on a second album, planned for an early 2015 release. Listenable Records also issued the following statement:

"As a band that moves intently and without compromise, this new recording is also being done in their own studio 'Sitra Ahra,' in the forests outside Uppsala, Sweden.

"The critically acclaimed first album Aion of Drakon took the band to numerous major festivals including Roadburn, Hell’s pleasure and Heavy Days in Doomtown as well as on both European and North American tours.

"The strong occult and dark magical backbone is more prevalent than ever, and as a band that actually started before the current occult trend appeared, and considering that mastermind Tommie Eriksson is both a published writer and well known practitioner and lecture holder on the magical and occult arts, this will be a record that stands out from the tepid repetition of 70s clichés.

"The album is to be named 'To The Other' to signify that it is a gift from the band to both the Other Side, and to all that is in the shadows, in the other side of existence, that which has been neglected by the everyday world of light. US drummer Tim Call (Aldebaran, Howling Wind, Nightfell etc) brings his experience and power to the band on this recording.

"The album will be released by Listenable Records in Europe, and The Ajna Offensive in the U.S. The album will be mixed and mastered by Michael Zech (Triptykon, The Ruins Of Beverast)."
