Given recent events, if ever there was an album with a foretelling title then death-doom masters Temple Of Void‘s highly anticipated third album delivers just that.

The album’s opener “A Beast Among Us” Thunderous doom-laden opening riff really sets the tone & mood for the album “Self-Schism” is slower and melodic than the opening track but the misery has been turned up a level. The shortest & Flamenco sounding Instrumental “A Single Obulus” is followed by “Leave The Light Behind” unexpectedly take a space-rock twist in amongst the combination of harsh and clean vocals.
The penultimate track “Casket Of Shame” is the track that I played the most from the album, this is followed by the final title track and longest of the album “The World That Was” which is not only the perfect closer but is also the most Ominous sounding track of the album.
Even being in the fortunate position of being able to access new and upcoming albums this is one I keep coming back to again and again
