    Message from the band:
    "This is a release that’s been long overdue. It’s somewhat of a missing puzzle piece for a lot of collectors. The original pressing was limited to 300 copies and it’s been out of print ever since. We started kicking around the idea of a deluxe reissue with expanded liner notes a few years ago and it just never came to fruition. So we were really excited when Redefining Darkness stepped up to the plate and offered to give it the full deluxe treatment that it deserves. This album sounds best as a double LP and we’ve retained that fidelity. But we’ve also improved the layout by changing it to a gatefold, and added a whole host of brand new liner notes written especially for this release. Mike penned song explanations for the whole record, and Alex wrote extensively about the recording session itself. 
    This record means a lot to band and we’re proud and excited to see the vinyl finally live on in this new incarnation. We’re hopeful that a new label will draw new fans to this album, and happy that a lot of long-time loyal fans can now get complete their vinyl collection with this stellar pressing. 
    This is the first album we brought into this world as Temple of Void. It set us off on a wild journey exploring the expanses of death and the depths of doom. It’s a journey we’re still energized to be on. And a journey we look forward to sharing with fans for years to come. 

    Metal of Death. Life of Doom."

Here. This town. Secluded slice of life. Picture-perfect front of diabolic atrocity What cold horror lies beyond these warm smiles and hospitality? Potter’s Bluff The Embalmer’s Art Master work of the wicked Unsuspecting ones wander incautiously The geniality of the accommodating town of death Last moments to life captured in macabre photographs of anguish and final breaths Self-Made God The embalmer’s task Engineer of perverse monstrosity Town mortician Nefarious puppeteer Creator of this depraved paradise to which you have returned Carefully stationed piece of this morbid puzzle You too have died
2.
Savage Howl 05:19
Witlhin these cold and lightless wood Incandescence of lycanthropic eyes radiate across the rayless tangle of knurled branches and engulfing timber Its heated breath clouds the distance as rapid pounding engulfs your chest One tries to run with natural intent, but feeble limbs give ill response But the hunt follows; trampling through the snow and frozen brush You sense its presence You hear its savage howl You’re in the company of the wolf Exposing footprints Closing chase Leaping force Drags your body to the ground Blurring vision As fangs descend into flesh Wince in agony As your entrails stain the snow around
3.
A cursed reflecting pool Brings a visage from beyond the grave Haunting, cryptic visions of the netherworld You wake in cold sweat Summoned For sacrifice Feed me I must dine a feast of blood Once, I too paid these sacrificial dues You must now give them to me So I may walk once again in daylight (Lead: Erdody) Compelled to obey Payment by plunge of the blade Beyond the Ultimate, we can feast and gorge ourselves forever
4.
This door, a way Looming access below Descending stairway Long shadows drape where they once danced behind flickering flame; now coated in the fungal stench of forgotten time We are silence We are nothing Followers of space Adhering only to the demise of humanity A cold sleep Invoking a way Outside Patent Grave Cosmic Life ends Life ends We are silence We are nothing Followers of space Adhering only to the demise of humanity

6.
Brick by brick Your spacious coffin climbs As mortar dries The lighting subtly dies Pompous fool The blame is all your own A scathing tongue Brings immurement within stone Weakness. Onset. You’ll rot in Solitude Thrice chance been given to turn back Attrition atoned within the catacombs Nemo Me Impune Lacessit Your body as sealed as your fate You will be left to starve
7.
To Thee, thy course by lot is given Guilt breeds suspicions and deceptions From Eden to contemporary times Charge and strict watch must be made Ageless task A Burden of Penance For centuries to come Through me you go into the city of grief Through me you go into the pain that is eternal Through me you go among people lost Abandon hope, all ye who enter Lifeless eyes Ever vigil Exanimate Gaze that is our tyrant and enemy Take it, my love Let this knife lead you to us Make you well again
8.
Waking – You grasp and you claw but there is no escape Scratching – The slivers of pine stabbing under your nails As you panic – Your breathing gets faster as air runs out Entrapment – Within the confines of this oblong box Double-crossed Left to die Conscious – Effects of your serum have well worn away Regretting – This insurance ploy gone completely awry Kicking – But six-feet of dirt keeps your coffin-lid sealed Screaming – The painful acceptance that this is the end Gasping for air, sweating profusely You clasp at your throat (Lead: Blanchard, Erdody, Awn)

about

"of Terror and the Supernatural" picks up where the demo left off and steamrollers the listener to death via a slow, high-fidelity death metal assault. 51 minutes of doom that often draws comparisons to Asphyx, Bolt Thrower, Autopsy, Cathedral and early Opeth. Members of Acid Witch and Hellmouth. This debut album is heavier than Thor's hammer. Buy it now.

Temple Of Void Detroit, Michigan

ToV is an uncompromising collaboration from the depths of Detroit. Comprising of five musicians who have put in decades of time in the Detroit underground, ToV entered this world with singular focus and methodical execution from the start. ToV harkens back to the somber sound of early British doom, while channeling the energy and devastation of old school American death metal. ToV destroys all. ... more
