We are thrilled to announce the third full-length album ‘Spectrum DCXCIII: Poison Portals’ of Templum N.R. The album is released in a cassette format through our Underworld Editions and will be followed by CD and vinyl releases in due course.
On one hazy night I met an elderly man sitting in an old wooden chair. He was wearing an elegant white suit and I couldn’t help noticing the simple white lines in his fore- and middle fingers. In the remaining fingers he had circles. The pitch black sand of the shore absorbed all the light from the sky. Regardless, I saw fifty meter high waves crashing down behind him – and at the same time they were static.
‘Spectrum DCXCIII: Poison Portals’ has a luring, fatal beauty of its own. Redirecting, throbbing analog electronics, slowly swallowing droning textures and sinuous rhythms are accompanied with eternal, eerie melodies – all reeking of the primordial pleasures. Obscure radio transmissions and telepathic resonances are emerging from the parallel universes and will sink you even deeper into the ignorance of your very self or towards the ravishing beauty of transformation.
The other worlds and realities are present both in sound and vision; this album is a triple bladed iron dagger, brought to this world while working in a trance. Assume its form, penetrate the Poison Portals and travel until the opposites intermingle and known territories vanish beneath the fifty meter high waves.
The regular edition of 70 copies is housed inside an oversized, screen printed & stamped cardboard covers including four two-sided insert cards and a canvas patch (18 cm x 30 cm).
