As the album’s title suggests, “Mysterium” dwells on the topics of spirituality and religiosity. “From the opener, Lord Of Knowledge And Death, to the closing number, All In Your Name, every inch of this record drips with it” – comments the band.”Mysterium can be seen a collection of meditations and prayers over the mysteries of Faith, directed towards the gods of the left hand path”.
Musically, TEMPLE OF BAAL’s Black Metal roots are back in full force, allowing the atmospheres to develop through songs of epic proportions, mostly clocking around 8 or 9 minutes each. “Mysterium” covers a wide musical specter, from slower ritualistic parts, to furious blasts and thrashy riffs or the surprisingly melodic choirs of “Magna Gloria Tua” and “Hosanna”, each song taking the listener into a spiritual journey, evolving through various climates, keeping the listener’s mind awake. “I never got that much into monotonous, uniform albums” – says band’s leader Amduscias. “I like music to take my mind from one point to another. Even if I have a strict view of what TEMPLE OF BAAL should be, stagnation is not something I’m very fond of.”
