By playing a melodic and groovy Death Metal with some Thrash and Progressive influences, Temnein follows its own path since 2009.
A first album released early 2014, « 404 B.C. », available in Europe and USA through Danish label Mighty Music, offers them some good reviews in the European Metal press. This recording allows them to share the stage with international renowned Metal acts, whether in the border countries of their French home or in Japan for three wonderful gigs in December 2014.
After the arrival of a new vocalist in 2016, the band enters in Conkrete Studio (Loudblast, ETHS, The Great Old Ones…) with charismatic producer « El Mobo » to record their 2nd album, “White Stained Inferno”. The album is out worldwide since October 20th 2017 through Massacre Records. “White Stained Inferno” already gained great reviews on Lords of Metal ( 84/100), Metal Observer (9/10), Rock Hard Germany (7/10), Metal Temple (9/10), Thrashocore (7,5/10), and many more.
The album title is a reference to a white stained inferno, which represents the medical field and more specifically the stay in a hospital. The lyrics deal with all the difficult steps of the disease, whether it’s physical or psychological: from the beggining of the disease to the possible healing, not to mention the chilling diagnostic, the struggle against oneself and the fear of death.
All the visuals are realised by Ibay Arifin, an astonishing Indonesian young artist who has recently worked with Gojira, Year of No Light, pg.lost, among others.
Musically, the album is darker and more atmospheric than « 404 B.C. ». To symbolise the concept of the record, the band wished to focus more on emotions rather than pure technical aspects. However, the whole record has a lot of diversity, included several acoustic parts, furious accelerations, numerous catchy breaks, well shaped guitars solos and the main vocals have more efficiency and a diverse range of possibilities.
The band has played more than 50 Shows in Europe and Japan, with opening acts for: Eluveitie, Primordial, Equilibrium, Powerwolf, Leprous, Beyond Creation, Mors Principium Est, God Dethroned, Dagoba, Benighted, Gorod, Hacride, Leng T’che, Hypno5e, No Return…
