VIOGRESSION (US) are considered to be one of the pioneering bands
of the Death metal genre. Two decades after its debut album («Expound and Exhort” from 1991) they are back with:
“A Pure Formatily” 4 new mid-tempo tracks of obscure and hypnotic Death metal. Vocalist Brian DeNeffe has done his best work to date, his sickening voice is not human but the sonic representation of rot and decay.
The superb guitars riffs & solos are of extreme beauty and the bass
and drums are technically perfect.

The overall aura of “A Pure Formality” is dramatic, intense, emotive and yet brutal

  • 7mm Maxi slim jewel case / J-card
  • Special CD design with graphical mastering
  • double sided insert with band photos and lyrics
  • Limitation: 500 copies

Temple of Darkness Records is proud to announce that we have a new deal with Richard Lederer (Summoning, Die Verbannten Kinder Evas…) in order to release “Nullify”, the 4th Ice Ages album in a deluxe CD limited to 500 copies. Release plan is Septermber 2019.

This new album is pure dark art, apocalyptic and yet emotional and evocative. Synth music with a slow and calculated atmosphere that may even eclipse bands natives in the genre largely thanks to the fact that
Richard Lederer has been really inspired and brilliant in this album.

For all those Summoning lovers out there, that would like to approach to new sounds, you will easily recognize the Richard Lederer signature in the 8 tracks, because the whole album is composed with the same winning formula used to create the Summoning songs. The atmosphere and melodies of “Nullify” will be so familiar for you all, specially in tracks like “Forsaken”, “Death Parade”, “Empty Shrine”, “Reunion” or “Chasm”

DIE VERBANNTEN KINDER EVAS “Nachtaugen: Live In Vaduz” DVD [Cat.Ref.:TOD050/DVD]

Price: 15,00 €

In 1996, Die Verbannten Kinder Evas and Weltenbrand performed live in the city of Vaduz, Liechtenstein. The event was recorded, mixed and later that year released on split VHS tape, by M.O.S. Records Ltd., as “Nachtaugen, Live In Vaduz.”

The first press released to the public, currently known as the “Extended Version”, had a total duration of 70 minutes and featured both live concerts plus one video-clip of each band as
bonus. In the later re-presses, the two bonus video-clips were omitted, resulting in a tape of only 60 minutes.

The DVD you´re holding in your hand, is the reissue of the “Extended Version” tape in digital format, including only Die Verbannten Kinder Evas´ video footage, that is his live performance & bonus video-clip.

To be faithful to the original, the film has been preserved in its unaltered form, hence the reason why the 4:3 aspect ratio and the 1996 mixing have been maintained. However, to improve the visual experience, we have added extra material providing the DVD with a menu, an outro and also a photo gallery.

Additionally, the original video and audio have been remastered using the latest technology and post-production techniques. For over a year now, a team of professionals have been working closely together, to archive both the highest possible image and sound quality. Once we reached the optimal result, we proceeded to the migration of the original remastered recording from analog format to digital format.

The original recording was previously only available on analogue VHS tapes, a fragile medium with a limited life-span, consequently it was condemned to disappear over the next years. This type of recording media is prone to deterioration and degradation due to the chemical decay of the tape’s magnetic components.
Therefore, this DVD can be considered a relic, not only because we have managed to rescue the only visual document of Die Verbannten Kinder Evas to date, but also because it has been improved and finally transcribed to the next generation of recording systems; the digital format. Amongst other feature, digital recording media has a life expectancy far superior to the already outdated magnetic videotapes. In that way, this DVD will preserve Die Verbannten Kinder Evas´ visual testimony over time.

Vinyl-effect DVD with a solid black ridged spiral running around the outside of the disc on the printed side, looking exactly like grooves in a vinyl record. Housed in a card wallet.

This DVD is the same which is included in the double vinyl set. If you are going to purchase the double vinyl set, you will receive this DVD as part of the set.


A new section has been added to the shop. From now on, you can purchase some of the most relevant BOOKS about the metal scene.
