Originally released in 1996 by the pivotal Cold Meat Industry but extremely rare to find on vinyl ever since, ‘Burning the Temple of God’ is widely hailed as Mz.412's greatest and most influential work. Although it is not the collective's first album, ‘Burning the Temple of God’ was starkly and strikingly unique upon its initial release, and would eventually shape the "black industrial" subgenre. Here, mulching tones of mangled guitar and electronics course through terrifyingly tribal, ritualistic rhythms, creating an atmosphere of mechanistic, dystopian collapse. Like the very bowels of Hell bursting upward - slowly, menacingly - through the long-unused smokestacks of rotten, derelict factories, Mz.412's ‘Burning the Temple of God’ is an experience like no other, a world unto itself... and one that eventually consumes the listener.
And now, AnnapurnA releases this monumental album on the format its frightening visions so deserve. Remastered for Vinyl by N.G. Ekholm in January 2016. Hail the end!
