The Tempter is a project of Alex Wank (Pungent Stench) formed with Tarpiu in the beginning of 2008 to let demons out and anger in. After Mr. Wank decided that Pungent Stench had come to an end, he took his break for half a year. Obviously, this break couldn‘t last for too long, and he soon found the right partner for future musical activities by the end of 2007. With the beginning of 2008 these pitchblack souls started to work on material, but they took their time to create something special with a certain feel for heaviness and melodies. Working hard on their style for almost 2 years, The Tempter finally recorded material for a full length release in the coldness of winter 2010.

The completed album “Turpis Rex” was recorded in a full live analogue recording session on January 12th 2010 by HJ of KlangschmiedeNorikum. Bass on this album was recorded by Mucho (Our Survival Depends On Us), Organ by HJ Gmeilbauer (Thelema& Our Survival Depends On Us). Mastered by Audiobomber at Castle Studios spring 2010. Right after completion of the recording Tarpiu disappeared in the Mouth of Madness and Wank lost interest in this project. “Turpis Rex” was completed but stayed unreleased… until now!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
