Standout Track(s):

The Maiden

We absolutely love how this song transitions from the previous track, it's seamless. Oh, and the rhythmic fuzz at the 1:38 mark is so fucking infectious. The vocal control of High Priestess Nighthawk is among the best we've heard within female stoner/doom vocalists.


Isabella (with Unrelenting Fangs)

An epic tune with gorgeous guitar tones and sultry vocals. This track is so fucking trippy without going out too far... they hang within their psychedelic stoner realm. The ending weaves in and out of post-doom and classic stoner jamming. All three instruments are played to perfection.

Brew Pairing

Lets go with a local brew to Heavy Temple. Take a trip trip to Mad Chef Craft Brewing in Petersburg, PA and grab some Haze Chaser. This 5% hazy IPA is extremely refreshing with tastes of apricot and passion fruit.
