Temple Of Baal / Press

“Temple Of Baal a choisi de varier les plaisirs avec un black death bien ficelé aux rythmiques plus nuancées, parfait condensé de son savoir-faire. 5/6.”

"This album is absolutely bone-grinding madness from the get go."

“The aggression is so there that you can almost touch it.”

“Temple of Baal’s style is as diverse as it is intelligent”

“Nothing subtle about what this band does, they simply bring the fucking clobber straight to the listener's personal space and don't even bother to dust up the ashes, and I'm sure tunes like "When Mankind Falls" and "Slaves to the Beast" are bound to be the roots of numerous lawsuits in the near future, so pit-friendly and punishing they are.”

“Un rouleau compresseur assez imparable, une source d'agression sonore et de terreur musicale.”

“Both parts of the split are incredibly enjoyable listens, and The Vision of Fading Mankind is a bona fide exemplar of a good split. The two parts are equal in quality, but different in sound and expression (but both operate within the brutal end of the metal music spectrum), and thus the whole split is varied and interesting. Fans of death metal and black metal should be able to enjoy both the Temple of Baal and the Ritualization parts of this magnificent split. ****”

“Dans la droite lignée de Lightslaying Ritual, TOB envoie le boulet, et plutôt quatre fois qu’une. C’est noir, glauque, poisseux, animé par un esprit indéniablement old school, mais moderne à la fois, mélange parfait de Black brutal et de Death Metal pour un résultat ô combien vicieux. Nul doute que ces compos terrasseront l’auditeur sans difficulté aucune. Un bon 5/5 s’impose pour Temple Of Baal.”

“(The Vision Of Fading Mankind) Performed on heavily distorted guitars and an even more distorted bass plus ultra fast blastbeating, all filtered through a raw production, the four Temple of Baal songs on the split come across as being incredibly brutal compared to a lot of other black metal tunes. 4/5”

“(The Vision of Fading Mankind) Spetttacolare questo split edito da quello che potremmo definire il più nero metallo d'oltralpe. 8/10.”

“(The Vision Of Fading Mankind) Tan magnífica obra..." "Un Split Abusivo podríamos decir por parte de Temple of Baal, ya que está perfectamente confeccionado y pensado... 4/5, Fucking Rulez”

“(The Vision Of Fading Mankind) Un gran split para reventaros los tímpanos pero sin perder algunos toques de melodía. Además de un trabajo de dos bandas que demuestran mucha calidad, se trata de un lanzamiento ameno y dinámico... 8,5/10”

"Un show carré, sans grandes fioritures ni extravagances, une réelle présence et un charisme écrasant."

“Lightslaying Rituals est vraiment un disque inspiré et varié.”

“(Lightslaying Rituals) Excellently rendered effort of occult darkness, 8,5/10”

John Mincemoyer - Terrorizer issue 192

“(Lightslaying Rituals) Voici l’album de la maturité. Enorme. 9/10”

“(Temple Of Baal) s'affirme un peu plus comme fidèle aux racines du genre, mais capable de l'aborder avec un ton aussi juste que personnel. 8/10”

Alexis Laffillé - Hard Rock Magazine

“With Temple of Baal, the label has brought us one of the best in France’s black metal scene. With Lightslaying Rituals, Temple of Baal makes an impressive label debut. 8,5/10”

“(Lightslaying Rituals) Les titre s'enchaînent avec force et persuasion tel le panzer écrasant les restes d'une bataille.”

Florent Bécognée - Metallian

“The dark spirituality and chaos of Black Metal is incased in the steel shell of a Death Metal war machine. This has become known as Blackened Death Metal and French quartet Temple Of Baal is among the finest having arrived at the choice of musical weapons organically through an evolution of hatred. Strength and integrity, if these are the things you praise, you should take note of this band.”

“(Lightslaying Rituals) Ce 4ème album du temple de Baal est clairement une réussite. Plus brutal, plus sombre, plus dense, le groupe prend à la gorge l’auditeur pendant 40 minutes avant de le relâcher, mort ou vif. 16/20”
