--------------------------------------------------

There was a time in the History of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal when the boundaries of those genres were blurry and it was natural for them to flow together into powerful musical expressions, very often under the flag of occultism and esoterism. Today, those times of great ardour and creativity revive in the arcane melodies of THE ORDER OF THE SOLAR TEMPLE, a wicked congregation performing strange rituals in the ancient magik of rock and roll.

Conceived in 2012 by Canadian singer/guitarist Matt "Macabre" Emery - once in the ranks of Funeral Circle and other Vancouver's metal acts - THE ORDER OF THE SOLAR TEMPLE plaits the occult-tinged proto-metal of Blue Öyster Cult with the dark, introvert visions of Paul Chain; the doom arabesques of Pagan Altar with the dreadful metal outbursts of Demon and Mercyful Fate; the teachings of Aleister Crowley with the denim-and-leather philosophy of the first metal era.

"The Order Of The Solar Temple" is the band's spectacular eponymous album. A mass of overdrive, grandiose chants and pulsing sonic frequencies beckons you. Discard your robes and close your eyes...

Track Name: Fallout Woman
Baby, you’re an atom bomb
Or maybe I’m just crazy
I can’t get enough of your love
There’s a feeling pulsing through you
It causes fission through my body
I’ve got to get some of your love

And the rain pouring down is black,
black rain beating on my brow
I need to be with you now
'cause you’re my fallout woman

Baby, just the sight of you
radiates my senses
Accelerate me with your love
I want your sacred particle
No half-life in eternity
Regenerate me with your love

Break out of your shell
No fallout in Hell will keep me from loving you
My cells are splicing for you
Fallout woman
Track Name: Aeon Of Horus
The time has come to realize our nature
Cast out the doubts of the old
By the light of the conquering child-god
The shadows of our past are disowned
I strike the bell
I light the flame
I utter your mysterious name
For love is law, love is the answer
Under will as the beast did proclaim

Mother Egypt sets the stage for the dawning of an age
(Har-par-Khered)
Ancient magick is exhumed to free us from our doom
(Abrahadabra)

Strip yourselves of morbid obsessions
See your life for the wisdom it holds
The time is here for our holy regression
Cast out your fear, let your spirit unfold
You strike the bell
You light the flame
You can call Him by name
Horus, the keeper of Light
Show me your image tonight

Mother Egypt sets the stage for the dawning of an age
(Har-par-Khered)
Ancient magick is exhumed to free us from our doom
(Abrahadabra)
Track Name: The Cult (Of Rock And Roll)
Baby, I’ll be your priest
I’d like to touch your soul
Your life of virtue and sanctity
Has taken such a hellish toll
Eat my bread, you can drink my wine
It must be hard not to sin a little girl
When you look so fine

Stand before the altar
And fall down to your knees
This is the cult of rock and roll

Come along baby, come with me
Through an astral plane
Your silly little legacy of life you led before me will never be the same
Discard your robes and close your eyes
Take a little trip with this wicked congregation
I’ll tell you all my lies

Stand before the altar
And fall down to your knees
This is the cult of rock and roll
Track Name: Jervas Dudley
I stand before the ancient granite hall
This forbidding slab of stone
Light the candle, venture deeper
Into this resting place of my paternal race

And I have seen this place before
A strange vision in my mind
To claim my heritage of death
And rest within the tomb of Hyde

Four white walls and iron bars
keep me from meetings with the dead
But in that vault, I know, my vessel there awaits
A coffin for to rest my head

And I will see this place again
In the hollow by the trees
A phantom visage wreathed in flame
Brings me to my knees at the door of the tomb
The tomb of Hyde
Track Name: Pale Horse
One sword and a mighty stead
I ride the night to reap your mortal seed
One lamb for to break the seal
Four men to bring you hell on wheels

Ooh, I'm faster than a burning star

Come and see
This beast rides free

Come and see
Eternally

A pale horse, and upon it, Death
He takes your soul to keep, you take your final breath
The fires of Hell are burning bright
Like seven billion sinners with their souls set alight

Ooh, don't you know where you are?

It's hell on earth, baby
Track Name: Back Home
I’ve been away such a long time
My eyes could not foresee
Just how damn bad the years have been to this town and me
Do you see the face of the man who walks alone?
His grin that hides his heinous crimes as his reputation grows

Oh baby, I’m finding my way
Back home

A different time, a different place but the outcome still remains
When your life comes crashin’ down you’ll ask who’s to blame
Beware of the man, though he may look less deranged
He’s still a beast with an evil mind and intentions never change

Oh baby, I’m finding my way
Back home
Track Name: The Order
Take my hand, my dear
Through this ethereal void
The witching hour draws near
I've hypnotized you, your will destroyed...

Just look into my eyes, and you will see
The fate of your life belongs to me
This procession, wicked, beckons thee

You bear the seal, you wear the gown of white
The symphony of night guides you to the altar
Where you'll die

Incantations chanted loud
As we approach the hour of dawn
We turn our faces to the sun
The sacrificial blade will take your life away

Just look into my eyes, and you will see
The fate of your life belongs to me
This procession, wicked, beckons thee

You bear the seal, you wear the gown of white
The symphony of night guides you to the altar
Where you'll die
