Exclusive Song + Video Premiere: Temnein’s “The Knotted Bag”
We could all use a little cheering up right now… and this will definitely cheer you up: “The Knotted Bag,” the new single from the France’s Temnein. The song is as excellent of a melodic death metal track as you’ll hear today, reminiscent of bands such as Omnium Gatherum and Kalmah. The video, meanwhile, is a HIGHLY entertaining animated clip that feels like an especially mean-spirited episode of South Park (which is really saying something).
Says the band of “The Knotted Bag”:
“This track is a good representation of all the different inspirations that you can hear on the album: our Melodic Death Metal roots, the atmospheric influences (mostly from Doom/Death and Post-Metal) and some progressive elements, especially on the outro. The lyrics are inspired from an ancient Asian tale for children, so we created the video as if it was drawn by a child.”
Don’t deprive yourself — check out “The Knotted Bag” via the video below! The track will appear on Temnein’s third full-length, Tales: Of Humanity And Greed, which will see a physical release by the band on May 22nd with worldwide digital distribution by Blood Blast. The album was produced by “El Mobo” (Loudblast, ETHS, The Great Old Ones, Eryn Non Dae, etc.) and features artwork (above) by Vincent Fouquet (Meshuggah, Kataklysm, Moonsorrow, Kampfar, etc.). Pre-orders will be live soon here (physical) and here (digital).
