Occult doom debut EP "Initiation of the Fool" from TMPL


Occult doom debut EP from TMPL

Fuzzy just reviewed the occult doom band COVEN SPELL, and today we have the occult rock TMPL from Tucson in the desert of the American Southwest. The debut EP "Initiation of the Fool" from TMPL sounds like a dream from the 70s. Heavy rock with angelic vocals? Yes, please! Check out TMPL: 

There's a reason the vocals have an operatic, occult quality to them. And it's because the singer has a background in church choir and vocal training. She brings her talents to full bear and are the perfect complement to the heavy occult rock sound on this EP. 

I heard about this band's debut EP from their interview on DOOM TOMB PODCAST (which is great, so go check it out) and I'm really glad to have heard this short EP. Doom Tomb called it when he said this is a band to keep an eye on. 

Fuzzy's favorite: "Witch Moon"

I hope TMPL band has a full album in the works. I'm looking forward to it!

And check out their interview with Doom Tomb Podcast!

TMPL is from Tucson, Arizona with members:

  • Abigail Codru: Vocals
  • A. Kruger: Guitar
  • Tyler Major: Bass/Effects
  • Zachary White: Drums/Organ
