Root - The Temple In The Underworld LP & 7" EP (Black vinyl)
Limited to 360 copies. Housed in a gatefold jacket with the 7" sleeve glued inside.
Root is deservingly hailed as one of the original pre-second-wave black metal bands escalating the genre to broader and darker reaches and realms. The Temple in the Underworld is one of the numerous testaments of the supreme occult madness that the band has bestowed to the genre. The grandeur lies in the songwriting that builds the superlative structures of the songs; the grandeur lies in the vile atmosphere molding that ritualistic songwriting; and in the complete unhallowed expedition that this forty-four minute record takes a listener to. The depth of the ideology and the profoundness of lyricism have certainly generated a bigger impact to the musical luminosity.
