Song of the Week: Temple of Baal’s “Divine Scythe”

Especially the last few years, Paris black metal terrors Temple Of Baal have arguably been one of the most fiery and inspired bands in black metal. New single “Divine Scythe” showcases so much of the darkness in this band that I love, from varied yet intoxicating guitars to war cries from a place of deep contemplation. And the solo over the slow plodding bridge is magnificent. “Divine Scythe” should be cranked by any self respecting metal head.

Mysterium is the title of their next full-length album, due on October 2nd via Agonia Records, and “Divine Scythe” is the first single to be released. The song, which features guest vocals by Georges Balafas (Drowning, Eibon, Decline Of The I) can be heard BELOW.
