Review by Rick Eaglestone for MPM

To say that I was obsessed with the satanic do-wop duo’s debut would be classed as an understatement, it’s an album that has very much stayed in regular rotation and anybody that has heard it would easily attest to just how blasphemously catch it is with choruses and structures that stay with you.

It has felt like an eternity for another studio album to be created but now that time has arrived as Twin Temple are back with God Is Dead

Now opening track Burn Your Bible is everything I wanted although I immediately melt into the harmonies but there is a problem – it’s the sound it has that rough demo edge and something that could have done with a bit more a tweak in production which is a shame as it’s a great track, but I just find its execution distracting.

This is all but confirmed as there seems to be no such issue on the follow up tracks (Fallin’ For A) Fallen Angel & the albums lead single – Lets Have A Satanic Orgy which still invokes a spark of joy with that intro…

The real do-whop execution comes in the form of Two Sinners, and I even managed to sneak this onto the in-laws’ speakers without them even batting an eyelid and I almost converted them too that was before the melody of Black Magick rang through which for the record is probably my highlight track of the entire album.

Spellbreaker kicks off a penultimate trio of terror and really encapsulates everything wonderfully unholy about Twin Temple is paired with Be A Slut and the final offering and title track God Is Dead which of all the ballad type waves really polishes the album off with a sense of finesse.

A well-crafted and executed sermon.
