Temple of the Smoke – …Against Human Race

What we’ve got here is a band from Belgrade, Serbia called Temple of the Smoke. Below you can read a part from their official biography. I would just add that …Against Human Race is set to be released on RAIG Records in July and you have to believe me on this one, this album is a freaking masterpiece! To prove it, look below this text and hit the PLAY button.

Taken from the band’s biography:

Temple of the Smoke started in 2010. as a four piece, after couple of years spent in exploring different ideas and approaches. This final lineup is composed of Dragan Mirković (drums and percussions), Marko Ilić (bass), Dušan Žica (guitar, analog and digital synthesizer, sampler, dub) and Janko Stojanović (guitar and vocals).

The sound in which they positioned fundaments of their temple may be described as echoing ride, mostly instrumental, that varies from psychedelic and space rock expeditions, ambient and drone soundwaves in tradition of 70s kraut/prog rock, mixture of post rock and roots dub, with elements of trip hop, hard and stoner rock, electronic music and other crossover experiments. Inspired by local and global politics, infinite areas of space, psychedelic phantasmagorias and visions, science fiction, films and literature, Temple of the Smoke are spreading their message armed with arsenal of vintage tube amps, laboratory of analog and digital effects and synthesizers, and treasury of samples taken from the depths of popular culture and history.
