The ever lovely DangerousMinds recently posted high praise of L.A. Satanic girl-group revivalist duo. We’ve posted about these guys before when the Los Angeles Times profiled em but some intel bears repeating. An excerpt of DM’s piece says:
“Twin Temple is the perfectly-formed duo of Alexandra (who sometimes sounds like Amy Winehouse) and Zachary James (who looks like a dapper Count Dracula)—’the high priests of Twin Temple, the Satanic doo-wop band hailing from the city of Angels.’
“The band was started on Halloween (a witch’s sabbath) in 2016 when a destruction ritual was performed, and Alexandra and Zachary stepped into their power as Twin Temple, energetically killing all their previous incarnations up until that point.
“Although you may expect heavy guitar riffs and a thumping bass to accompany cries of ‘Hail Satan,’ instead you’ll hear old-school, classic riffs and Alexandra’s crooning voice that sounds straight out of the ‘60s. While many confine Satan to the likes of black metal, the duo is breaking the notion that Satan has a type. After all, who says Satan wouldn’t get down to some classic Americana? Inspired by the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll, Twin Temple rejects conformity of any kind, whether it’s through their magick, performance, or sound.
“Unlike a lotta of ‘black metal bands,’ who dig Satan to sell product, Twin Temple practice Satanism with what they sing on and off stage—using music to promote their ‘ideals of free will and giving space to those who are often not allowed any.’”
And leave us not forget that Church of Satan Anton Lavey loved to serenade people on the keys with vintage tunes from the early 1900’s.
Oh, and here’s a link to their video “Sex Magick.” NSFW! I wonder if this could provoke Boyd Rice into reforming Spell!
