Temple of Set – Temple of Set C32

Cult of Craft

Here’s another snazzy looking release from Cult of Craft this time bringing the noisy sounds of Temple of Set, another act I am unfamiliar with. The packaging is simple yet classy with a bow holding the tape onto the heavy stock.

The sound and style of Temple of Set remind me much of Temple of Tiermes and it’s not just because they have similar names. With this self-titled tape you will get long droning tracks of distorted synth tones. The production is alright being quite crisp and clear.

The tracks don’t evolve much but rather they just “are” with bending frequencies and a good dosage of noise yet they usually only consist of one or two layers. This isn’t particularly complex or original but it maintains interest as well as a consistent quality and emotion.

Another solid release from this obscure label. Although the sound here isn’t particularly original or profound I’m definitely digging what they’re putting down. A release that requires some time to let it sink in, but once it does it’s quite enjoyable.
