Today Is The Day - Temple Of The Morning Star: 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
Label Warner/Proper Exclusive
20 years ago in Boston, Steve Auston would record what would lay the groundwork for challenging, downbeat and avant-garde metal for the next two decades to come. Having come across from early nineties noise rock homestead, Amphetamine Reptile Records, to the home of grind and all things extreme, Relapse, Austin pushed all possibilities to the limits. You can hear echo's of the work on Temple all over 2001's Jane Doe by Converge, as well a slew of hardcore bands such as Botch, Dillinger Escape Plan and even Mastodon. A true groundbreaker in his day, this sits with their albums Supernova and Sadness Will Prevail as some of the most enveloping and downbeat aggressive music ever recorded. ESSENTIAL.
