Following the collapse of the revered Angelcorpse in 2009, fans wondered if they would ever find anything as uniquely brutal or blasphemous. Thankfully, guitarist Gene Palubicki debuted Perdition Temple shortly after, showing fans that even if he had to do everything (excluding drums) himself, the furious blackened death metal would continue. Since the first release in 2010 (Edict of the Antichrist Elect), Perdition Temple has been honing their sound, with Palubicki enlisting more musicians to his cause, including vocalist Impurath of Black Witchery. This has allowed him to bring his focus back to unflinchingly monumental and captivating riffage. The latest album, The Tempter’s Victorious, includes blinding, pestilent guitar, inexhaustible blast beat drumming and a whole lot of miscellaneous evil. Starting off with the pulse-racing title track, the eight-song record gets the adrenaline going instantly, barely letting up, save for the odd punctuated breakdown. This album shreds harder than 1,000 razor sharp machetes chopping through phonebooks.
