Magister Templi (Norway) "Lucifer Leviathan Logos" (2013). com/bands/Magister Templi/. At any rate, Lucifer Leviathan Logos is an album that blindsided me with its modesty, purity, and, well, for lack of a better word, Mercyful Fate-iness. I was expecting more of a Moss-ish sound from these guys (which would have been awesome, too), but as soon as Master Of The Temple started up, I knew I was in for something special.
Norwegian based, NWOBHM-inspired Magister Templi combine occult, doom flavored lyrics reminiscent of Venom and Mercyful Fate with upbeat, power chord infused melody along the lines of Mercyful Fate and Pagan Altar to arrive at a groovy platter of satanic malarkey. With a bio like that, a rock solid EP and two of Svarttjern’s key members, it’s no surprise indie label Cruz Del Sur (home to early While Heaven Wept and Pagan Altar) snapped up this five-piece. So does that leave Magister Templi as mere kingly copycats or something more? Opening track Master of the Temple gallops along at a fiery.
Band: Magister Templi Album: Lucifer Leviathan Logos Type: Full-length Release date: May 10th, 2013 Label: Cruz Del Sur Music. Lyrics: In his fall the angel-beast forsook his rising star A careless, curious act of trust has brought us where we are Drifting backwards dry but dirty beating our own ears Lost inside our heads rejoicing, holding back the tears! And Like Lucifer I fell From my kingdom into hell

According to Abraxas d'Ruckus, "the idea was to define and describe, musically and lyrically, three mythological figures: Lucifer, the Angel heading for the fall; Leviathan, the Dragon in the deep; and Logos, the Cognitive ability of Man personified". Recording information: Recorded and mixed in Caliban Studio by Bjarte Lund Rolland.
Lucifer Leviathan Logos. This Norwegian power-doom squad debuts at album-length fully formed, with riffs so lucid and gigantic, vocals so self-assured and tuneful, and song structures so regal and uplifting that it doesn't even matter if all the lyrics are occult nonsense borrowed from .
