“Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law?” The whole of the flaw! A declaration with no beginning and no end, somehow looping on itself, you can hear echo ad infinitum, in the empty halls of man-made precepts. Slipping between the painfully felt concrete, and the abstract qualities of the Deathstream… Transfixed and made obsolete, as Eternity and Flesh finally clashes in my innards. As I, unprepared, am forced to suffer its unbearable evolution. The ‘self’ perishes in throes of upheaval, as the Soul blossoms amidst the ashes! The contortion in permanence, ‘I’ so graphically despise. ‘I’ consume without remorse… Only to spew out new life! New angles, and new paths, produced from my rejection. And yet this utopic vision is (partial and) lacking, as most refuse to dislodge the vestiges of the old world. Like a soreness in the mouth, Like rust… A malignance gnawing, gnawing at the gums, Like rust… Like rust stuck in-between our teeth! Like rust… Making the entire experience/experiment Like rust… “Do what thou wilt [might] be the whole of the [f]law” If the Formula is to remain incomplete! The Soul blossoms amidst the ashes Elsewhere & Elsewhen. ~G. McCaughry [BLIGHT].

Willpower alone is not enough! Or rather it would be if Intent was not always out of focus! Desire tarnishes the Holy, and our deeper understanding of Attainment! Thus, it rules supreme over the Ego-Sapiens! O' Lord! In your mercy! Strip us of our Flesh, for we do not know! Start the world afresh, Verily, make it so! For we to behold resplendent rays piercing through the ruined cupola, clearing a path that rips through the Empires of Meaninglessness... to ‘Step into Placelessness.' Lord of the Wild-Within! In your mercy! Strip away our Flesh, for it matters not! Inside-out, and acquiesce, to make it rot! Make it so! Make it right! Shineth forth the brightest of lights A Violent Light! We are made absolute if only for a moment, just enough so to witness the rise and fall of Ontological Reforms! ~G. McCaughry [BLIGHT].

Enter the Temple of Wounds, unleashed from the clandestine Canadians Blight. Rising out of obscurity to share their violent, radical, and illuminating vision, Blight’s nine song new album is a 52-minute exercise in galvanizing, and relentless Black Metal. Temple of Wounds will find a home within the ashen hearts of listeners of luminaries such as Behemoth, Marduk, and Rotting Christ, while also embracing the contemporary, underground zeal of bands such as Bölzer, Cobalt, Light of the Morning Star, and Kriegsmachine.

Yet the sound that Blight shapes out of chaos and calamity is uniquely their own: grand choirs and fiery chants pepper the band’s powerful and dynamic approach to Black Metal, where claustrophobic, menacing riffs threaten to suffocate, percussive elements merge violence with technological prowess, and vocals are delivered with a cathartic intensity.

Formed in 2008 in Montreal, Blight released several highly sought-after tapes into the underground during their early years. It was only after a brief hiatus, from 2010 to 2011, that frontman Gabriel McCaughry (ex- Unquintessence, Ion Dissonance, Vatican, Anathema Publishing Ltd.) made a pact with current-members Pascal Pelletier, Cedric Deschamps, and Rob Lapalme (ex- Insect & Ontôs On) to solidify what stands as today’s manifestation of Blight.

The band were discovered by the sub-arctic worshippers of blackest vinyl at Svart Records and after a short and fruitful period of communication, the parchments were inked and a covenant was made to release Blight’s new album Temple of Wounds on the 5th of June, 2020. Blight’s lyrical themes explore deep facets of inner alchemical transmutation, which lends their music substantial literary weight. Temple of Wounds is allied with a higher intelligence, creating a state-of-the-art sound-war of Black Metal that is at once fresh and familiar, primitive, and epic in scope.
