TEMPLE OF DREAD - New Music Video "Sentenced to Life"
Testimony Records proudly presents TEMPLE OF DREAD's first official music video for the song "Sentenced to Life", taken from the album "Blood Craving Mantras" which was released in August 2019.
The video was shot by Polish director Łukasz Jaszak Design & Photography, who has already made a name for himself in the scene with cooperations with bands like Decapitated, The Vision Bleak and Vomitory. The video perfectly captures the hopeless mood of the song as well as the protagonist's longing for death, but deviates from the pattern of common music videos. The band itself only appears in form of images and other allusions in the video sequences.
TEMPLE OF DREAD are currently working hard and intensively on songs for their second album "World Sacrifice", which is expected to be released in summer 2020 and will again be produced by drummer Jörg Uken in his Soundlodge Studios.

TURIA - Full Album Stream "Degen van Licht"
Dutch black metallers TURIA proudly present their highly anticipated third album, "Degen van Licht", in its entirety at Metal Injection. It will be released via Eisenwald (CD&LP) and Haeresis Noviomagi (MC) on February 28th 2020.
Cavernous reverbs evoke great depths and heights, while analog delays reminisce the phantasmal rays of the sun. The years of playing live across Europe since TURIA’s last album "Dede Kondre" are revealed in an increased complexity of songwriting. Taking cues from mid-era Bathory to early Hawkwind, moving between ferocious sonic avalanches and churning dirges, "Degen van Licht" is sure to expand Turia’s idiosyncratic style of black metal into new territories.
The album is once again produced, recorded, and mixed by TURIA themselves with assistance of longtime collaborator M. Koops. A greater clarity in the production is enhanced by the tasteful mastering courtesy of Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios.

It leads PORTA NIGRA back to the roots of more straight-forward, furious and monumental Black Metal art of the glorious 90s era.

The production was handled by Markus Stock.
