HADES ARCHER - Temple Of The Impure CD
HADES ARCHER was formed in 2006 in Santiago, Chile by N-III on guitars and voice and Infernal Desolator on drums. The band launched their first demo-rehearsals through Chilean label Kuravilu, unleashing their glorious influences such as Venom, Bathory, Hellhammer, Sarcofago, Sextrash, Mayhem, Impaled Nazarene, Bestial Warlust, Black Witchery, Inquisition, and more. Temple of the Impure is the grand culmination of HADES ARCHER's hard graft in the underground the past decade-plus, and a grimy new jewel in the reigning crown of Chilean black/death. The band's first new recordings in two years, following one fullength and several EP/split releases, Temple of the Impure proves that the silence was indeed golden, for LP#2 is a fucking firestorm of filth and foulness, a forever-flowing fount of unnervingly hypnotic ultra violence. Both defining and deviating from the classic Chilean archetype, Temple of the Impure sees HADES ARCHER simultaneously surpassing the boundaries of chaotic overload and somehow delivering their most diseased and dirt-encrusted expression by paradoxically locating their cleanest and most professional recording to date. A dicey move in most bands' hands, but here, the payoff speaks for itself: Temple of the Impure is precisely THAT, and it can be heard in gleamingly 3D tones, thereby maximizing the palpably physical possession it invokes within the listener. Total and utter diabolism across a dozen tracks in 34 minutes, Temple of the Impure kicks in immediately and thoroughly assaults the senses for its entire duration, along the way finessing forth deft 'n' dynamic downshifts and martial headbanging moments. Temple of the Impure is the foundation on which HADES ARCHER hereby assert their dominance across the nowadays underground metal scene. Behold mastery, and bow down.
