Sonny92 Promising ep of sorrowful doom from Greece's The Temple. The band are obviously influenced by Warning (as evidenced from their accomplished cover of Footprints) without becoming a sound-alike. The huge riffs and mournful vocals promise much for the future. One to watch. Favorite track: All Of Them Witches.

Rey de la fosa Never have I've heard a voice so perfect for doom since Warning.
The instruments also succeed in making an amazingly bleak atmosphere of doom.

Looking forward to their next release. Favorite track: All Hope Is Gone.

Doomland AfterWarning left us, there has been very few bands that can match them.
Finally we have The Temple.
They are almost up there.
Brilliant album.
Heartfelt and honest.

Amanda Capps Another classic release and band , this time flavoured with the style of the mighty WARNING, they are not a copycat band but follow in the Footprints of Warning and it is truly class!!!!! Favorite track: All Hope Is Gone.
