MAGISTER TEMPLI’s “Lucifer Leviathan Logos” Out Now on Cruz Del Sur Music


Norway’s masters of doom MAGISTER TEMPLI have released their full-length debut, Lucifer Leviathan Logos, to North American audiences this week.

This follow-up to 2012’s self-released Iao Sabao! EP, offers an alchemical balance of Occult/Doom music blended with pure NWOBHM-inspired traditional metal. Add a lethal dose of MERCYFUL FATE-galloping tempo-changes straight outta the golden era, and you end up with 100-percent pure heavy metal excellence.

The subject of worldwide critical acclaim, Lucifer Leviathan Logos was named Album of the Week by MSN Entertainment’s Adrien Begrand. Read Begrand’s thoughts on the album at this location.

“It’s not really easy for me to say this since there have been a ton of excellent albums so far this year but, Lucifer Leviathan Logos is at the top of my list for best album of 2013!” – 
[10/10] –

Magister Templi is a Norwegian Heavy Metal band, characterized by a strong lyrical imprint inspired by Western mysticism, ritual magic and alchemy. The band was founded in 2008 by singer Abraxas and Guitarist Baphomet, and released a digital demo (Lucifer/Restoration) in 2010. After finally recruiting a full set of five members in the fall of 2011, the band played some concerts in Norway supporting bands such as Pagan Altar (UK), as well as performing at the Inferno Festival 2012.

In June 2012, they self-released their first EP titled Iao Sabao, with a concept mainly centered on the ancient Greek Bornless Ritual and the alchemical picture series Splendor Solis; shortly after, they signed a contract with Cruz del Sur Music.

Due to their lyrical content, they have often been associated to the occult/doom metal movement, but Lucifer Leviathan Logos shows that Magister Templi is not a band that follows the actual retro-70s trend, but rather plays genuine, mainly NWOBHM-inspired heavy metal, embedded within the glorious practices of traditional doom metal. As even 1984-Mercyful Fate might be cited as another influence due to the numerous and sudden tempo-changes abundant in each and every song, no doubt that Lucifer Leviathan Logos is going to be one of most praised released of 2013!
