From Richmond, Virginia arrives Tempter, a soundtrack for end times hurtling along to the speed of global rage and impending doom. Merging the very best parts of crossover metal and hardcore from the 80s Japan, Sweden and UK, Tempter bring a new voice to a legendary sound. It comes perhaps as no surprise then that the group comprises of veterans of the hardcore scene from bands such as Candy, Division of Mind, Nosebleed, Ekulu and more. Instant bulldozers Sacricide and Pestilence, with their punchy riffs and wild solos bookend the S/T EP, whilst Uniformed Madness and Night Terror run along with at times almost apocalyptic walls of acidic noise. The production provides a dense atmospheric swamp of rage, mixed by Fucked Up's Jonah Falco, providing a fitting soundtrack for Valentina Lopez's huge vocal that sounds like 1000s of witches chanting. La Lluvia, with it's use of samples and layers of synths, dances around spoken word sections that read out a poem of the same name by Roberto BolaƱo, one of Chile's greatest literary writers. BolaƱo's work fits perfectly with a biting satirical punk mood that Lopez exudes with every breath.
