xCHICKEN SANDWICHx As raucous and complex as this album is, it never falls into being overly chaotic and remains surprisingly hooky. Sacraments of Descension imbues me with energy in these cold, shitty 2020 winter months. Favorite track: Desolation Usurper.

Ben Harris Deeply impressed by this bands ability to conjure such chaotic energy in music so deliberately and artfully constructed. Has all the ferocious energy of black metal, and the tighter brain-etched songmanship of death metal. It's OSDM with high production values, and it actually works! Favorite track: Devil's Countess.

John Herne Gene and Alex, two legends from the KCMO scene, join forces in what will be one of the best albums of the year. Pre ordered the tape and now just waiting for the vinyl.

about

HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present PERDITION TEMPLE's long-awaited third album, Sacraments of Descension, on CD, vinyl LP and cassette formats.

Although it's been five years since PERDITION TEMPLE's second album - 2015's The Tempter's Victorious, released by then-new label home HELLS HEADBANGERS - this seemingly interminable span between albums is par for the course for this band, for the year 2010 saw the release of the band's debut album, Edict of the Antichrist Elect. Back then, PERDITION TEMPLE began as something of a solo endeavor for scene veteran Gene Palubicki, co-founder of the legendary Angelcorpse. As years passed by and a second PERDITION TEMPLE album took shape, Palubicki assembled an elite cade of new members for The Tempter's Victorious, including his old Angelcorpse guitar foil Bill Taylor and, on vocals, Black Witchery's intimidating Impurath. While live assaults ensued with that lineup - with drummer Ron Parmer as the backbone, concurrently of Amon and Brutality - alas, more changes took shape in the TEMPLE and Palubicki has welcomed to the fold none other than bassist Alex Blume, a longtime member of Ares Kingdom and also Palubicki's bandmate in BLASPHEMIC CRUELTY.

Such lineup changes would prove dizzying for most bands, but PERDITION TEMPLE aren't like "most bands." For them, only iron-fisted death metal exists: no more, no less, straightforward but by no means simple. Blackened are their ways, and PERDITION TEMPLE continue their conquest with Sacraments of Descension. Picking up where The Tempter's Victorious left oft - literally wasting no time, as the album kicks in immediately, with no fanfare nor adornment - this militant 'n' malevolent tornado of souls consumes fully all who approach. The power-trio format is almost too perfect for PERDITION TEMPLE, as they peal off with precision one surging, contorting attack after another, their crush chaotic yet controlled; one could easily argue that Sacraments of Descension is the sound of the band at their tightest. Not to be outdone, ever, Palubicki puts on a clinic of demented soloing here, his demonic six-string conjurings invoking a hysteria that would be Hell personified if not for the preternatural grace he displays across those very, bloodstained strings (he also assumes vocal duties again, as he did for Edict of the Antichrist). Of especial note is the album's production: Sacraments of Descension was recorded between September and October 2019 at Audial Warfare, Very Metal Sound, and M.A.D.F. Studios, with mixing & mastering handled by Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Goatwhore, Nocturnus A.D.) at New Constellation.

Completed by exquisitely sulfurous artwork courtesy of SLAUGHTBBATH's Daniel Corcuera, PERDITION TEMPLE have arguably delivered their masterwork with Sacraments of Descension. Partake and pay fealty to these barbarian warlords!
