Tales: Of Humanity And Greed, the latest full-length from French melodic death metal goliaths, TEMNEIN is out today!
Produced by “El Mobo” (Loudblast, ETHS, The Great Old Ones, Eryn Non Dae) at Conkrete Studio in Bordeaux, France, Tales: Of Humanity And Greed is a captivating ten-rack journey thematically based on various stories, myths, and legends exploring classic childhood occidental fairy tales, unsung fables from Asia and Inuit lands, pop culture universes (Legend Of Zelda, Majora’s Mask, Doctor Who etc.), and much more. Each story is linked to a common theme: the repetition of human error. Musically, TEMNEIN here employs shorter song structures than previous offerings adding more dynamics to their melo-death foundation. More doom/death and post-metal influences have crept into the band’s sound consequently enhancing the overall atmosphere. The record comes swathed in the stunning artwork of Vincent Fouquet (Meshuggah, Kataklysm, Moonsorrow, Kampfar, Nordjevel).
