Amid the arid expanses of modern secularism and evangelical corruption arises Temple of Perdition. Witness melodic black/death hymns saturated in warm but dark and heavy ecclesiastical aesthetics, grandiose movements of cathedralic instrumentation, and a litany of vocal techniques. Witness the casting down of decadent and materialistic agendas, the exploration of the trials and wonders of the inner world, and the ultimate expression ego-dissolution toward ascension. Witness this glorious, epic, blackened creation, which defies common definitions and trends, and which and transcends the usual dichotomies of reason and matter. Witness the Temple of Perdition. – Ave Ordo Aeternum Noctis
