Templar are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2018 demo "Knights Of Nuclear Hell Decibelfucking The Charred Remains Of The Christ".
A very heavy thrash influenced sound starts off the ep along with the music also mixing in a great amount of first wave black metal influences while with the vocals are mostly grim screams which also add in some semi melodic tones at times and the music also has a lot of roots in the 80's but modern at the same time.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very old school style while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also capturing the raw aggression of punk at times as well as the guitar leads also remaining very true to an old school style and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music always remains very heavy.
Templar plays a musical style that takes first and second wave black metal and mixes it with thrash to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover metal, war, blasphemy and Templar themes.
In my opinion Templar are a very great sounding mixture of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Decibel Tyrant" and "renegade Templar Of The Radiating Deserts". 8 out of 10.
