SATURNALIA TEMPLE is now working on their second album, planned for an early 2015 release.
As a band that moves intently and without compromise, this new recording is also being done in their own studio 'Sitra Ahra', in the forests outside Uppsala, Sweden. The, critically acclaimed, first album Aion of Drakon took the band to numerous major festivals including Roadburn, Hell’s pleasure and Heavy Days in Doomtown as well as on both European and North American tours.
The strong occult and dark magical backbone is more prevalent than ever, and as a band that actually started before the current occult trend appeared, and considering that mastermind Tommie Eriksson is both a published writer and well known practitioner and lecture holder on the magical and occult arts, this will be a record that stands out from the tepid repetition of 70s clichés.
The album is to be named “To The Other” to signify that it is a gift from the band to both the Other Side, and to all that is in the shadows, in the other side of existence, that which has been neglected by the everyday world of light. US drummer Tim Call (Aldebaran, Howling Wind, Nightfell etc) brings his experience and power to the band on this recording.
The album will be released by Listenable Records in Europe, and The Ajna Offensive in the US. The album will be mixed and mastered by Michael Zech (Triptykon, Ruins of Beverast etc)
