‘Dark Energy’ is the first single to be released from the forthcoming album The Serial Killer Suite. Treacle thick, heavy and seething with riffs and undulating melodies, this is a storming single to kick the campaign off and ramps up the excitement for this hugely talented Midlands based band’s forthcoming summer release.
From the band:
“Dark Energy combines a mixture of musical and vocal styles designed to be both theatrical and dark as the title suggests. A gentle yet sinister intro riff leads into theatrical verses flowing into a heavier sections as the chorus kicks in for the first time, which then builds to a crescendo of heavy with a twisted nylon outro. The accompanying video is an introduction to the band’s new concept album theme which will be further revealed during the lead up to the release of The Serial Killer Suite”

“mixing up Monster Magnet with elements of long-lost grunge band Tad, Metallica and Mastadon, Temple Of Lies provide a neat object lesson in what can be done even without the support of a label….what you do need are talent and determination, both of which ToL have in spades”
Midlands based Temple Of Lies first came to light in 2010, honing their skills on the road and blitzing venues up and down the country with their brutal sound. Overcoming a couple of line up changes early on in the band’s existence, they’ve now consolidated their hugely talented line up and took the decision to rework a few of the tracks from their debut album ‘Monumental’ and put them onto ‘From Sand’, released on Attic Records in 2016, to reflect the far heavier, more mature sound they now have.
The band’s highly energetic live show delivers both musically and visually, entertaining audiences wherever they play and they are first and foremost a live band at heart, always will be. Temple Of Lies have recently supported the likes of XII Boar, Kyrbgrinder, Stormbringer, One Machine and their profile is growing fast.
Temple Of Lies are: Vocals – Si Shaw, Guitar – Jon Scranney, Drums – Alex Gamble
