Temple of Katharsis enter the Medieval crypt

Greek black metal act Temple of Katharsis have unveiled their new music video to the track “Inside The Medieval Crypt”. The track comes off the debut album “Macabre Ritual” which is out now via Warsaw, Poland-based Theogonia Records.

The video was created by Wolf’s Path Media Creations.

The CD version of “Macabre Ritual” includes a meticulously crafted 12-page booklet, guiding you deeper into the cryptic abyss of “Macabre Ritual“ with haunting artwork and cryptic information that amplifies your immersive experience in the world of Temple of Katharsis.

The album is also available via all major digital services.

“Macabre Ritual” is more than just an album; it’s a sinister journey that delves into the depths of satanism, anti-religion, death, darkness, and war. With influences from both the Scandinavian and Greek black metal scenes, Temple of Katharsis have crafted a sound that’s unyielding, intense, and hauntingly captivating.

Prepare to be entranced as you dive into eight unholy hymns, each casting a malevolent spell upon all who dare to listen. From the chilling atmospheres of “Abyssal Cold Void” to the relentless assault of “The Burning Flood of Antichrist” and the occultic incantations of “Inside the Medieval Crypt”, each track immerses you in a macabre world of sinister rituals and narratives.

Having made waves in the underground black metal scene with their demo, EP, and split album releases, Temple of Katharsis have established itself as a formidable force in the genre. Sharing stages with legends like Septic Flesh, Rotting Christ, and Gaerea, the band’s live performances are nothing short of mesmerising, leaving audiences spellbound.
