Since the 2003 release of their debut CD Enter the Temple, Temple 8 has been impressing music fans wherever the band appears. Straddling the realms of Neo-Progressive Rock, Symphonic Rock, and Progressive Metal, Temple 8 delivers a brand of exciting, stadium-ready Progressive Rock full of thick, chunky, driving riffs, melodic chords and open atmospheric vibe.
Inspired by such rock greats as Rush, Triumph, Dream Theater, Spock's Beard, Marillion and Pink Floyd, Temple 8 is philosophically inquisitive and politically irreverent, using poetic and politically charged lyrics to illustrate the stark state of world affairs, driving toward spiritual awakening, all laid out and wrapped around a superb, epic musical platform.
"Temple 8 ... combines the best of rock with metal and electronics into this driving extravaganza that could be played with a dozen performers and not just three or four. Temple 8 has both paradox and simplicity at its core. It is both grand and restrained." -- [ Janie Franz, SKOPE Magazine ]
Temple 8 are veteran performers with conference, festival and tour experience and at larger venues use background video presentations and backdrops to give the a band a visual appeal rivaled only by their major label counterparts. [+]
