Biography

MR TEMPER ARE:

A Southern UK Metal & Rock band reminding people that oldschool never dies and that mixed with the right amount of crazy you can get some seriously good contemporary music going on!

If you want to know more listen, but if you need to read then this is what the band have to say for themselves:

ALEX

Music is my way of anger management teamed with a need to vent some creativity. I started experimenting with vocals when I was 14. Nothing cool, just recording rhymes and things onto a tape deck. Then when I was 16 I joined my first band (Stoic Breed) and started doing what I've grown to love. My musical tastes have always been quite scattered and I've let this influence what I've brought to the bands I've been in. I will listen to anything I really don't mind. If I like it, I like it. It's weird because the older I get the more I get into my old school metal and rock, but I still love that touch of eccentricity in the music I indulge myself with. But when it comes down to it, there's nothing better than a rocking riff, a gut wrenching scream and a good mosh!

CHARLIE

Ever since I can remember I have been interested in music. So the first chance I got I started to play guitar, in the guitar club at school. You know the sort of thing "Yellow Submarine", "Let It Be" - it was a start! Eventually I managed to get hold of an electric guitar and started a band. Which is where I discovered the bass guitar. When the bass player left I got the chance to take over, I sold all my guitars and bought a bass rig. I’ve never looked back! I try to listen to as much music as possible and some of my influences are: Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Metallica, Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, Faith No More, Pantera, Alice In Chains, Dream Theater. Basically anything that provokes a response or has some imagination. So that's me.

ROY

I first picked up the guitar when I was 11, when I started to discover the hair metal bands of the late 80's/early 90's. The guitar teachers at school only taught classical guitar, so I ended up teaching myself proper guitar by playing along to records and learning from my mistakes. Over the years my music tastes have changed through discovering new bands, but I love anything with a good, loud riff. I started playing in bands not long after this, and from then on playing live has been my passion. I've played in many different styles of bands over the years, but nothing can beat the feeling of cranking that amp and bruising some ear drums!

MIKE

I’ve been playing guitar since 13 when I saw a gun’s n roses vid and wanted to do what Slash was doing. I quickly got into the heavier stuff (Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera) with Dano and we would jam together a lot as kids. I also took some lessons from a local teacher who introduced me to Van Halen, Vai and other guys I’d never heard of till then. I’ve been in a few bands playing different styles (met Charlie in the previous one) but always ended up wanting to play the Metal I grew up on. So I started to look for like minded guys to start a metal band with.

STU

Heavily into music from an early age, but was totally blown away by the Guns n Roses album 'Appetite for destruction'. Soon after i picked up some drum sticks, joined a rock band and started gigging! Gigging and bands have seen me touring and playing all over Europe, and on more than one occasion have been described as a 'full throttle' drummer!!! Previous bands include.... Mother Sun, Nosferatu and White Line Fever

Rot
Inside
Your life

I hear what you’re saying
I don’t wanna listen though,
Coz you’re always wrong
And I’m always right

I know what you’re saying
I hate what you listen to
Coz I’m always wrong
And you’re always right

I hear what you’re saying
I don’t wanna listen though,
Coz you’re always wrong
And I’m always right

I know what you’re saying
I hate what you listen to
Coz I’m always wrong
And you’re always right

I hope this time you win
You’re my saving light
I hope this time you lose
You’re my righteous might

You’re my saviour now

And I’m alone
I can’t reach peace I know
It’s my fault I feel I owe
Myself the pain, insane I know

Coz it’s my chance
To break the chains
Get out alive
Carry on intoxicating
Wreak this place
Destroy my world
It’s my life after all

Break the chains
Stay here and drown
Bury your past life in the ground
Screw this place it’s bringing me down
It’s my life after all…

I fear what you’re craving
I don’t wanna take it though
Coz I’m always stoned
And you’re always drunk

I know what you’re feeling
I hate when went we’re spinning out
But you’re always gone and far out of sight

I fear what you’re craving
I don’t wanna take it though
Coz I’m always stoned
And you’re always drunk

I know what you’re feeling
I hate when went we’re spinning out
But you’re always gone and far out of sight

I hope this time you win
You’re my saving light
I hope this time you lose
You’re my righteous might

***break***

You’re my saviour now

***Solo***

Drink | Destroy | Drink | Destroy

I hope this time you win
You’re my saving light
I hope this time you lose
You’re my righteous might

You’re my saviour now

World is Yours

Written By: MR. TEMPER

Take the risk
No regrets

Remember that this world
Is yours
This world is yours

Standing at the edge of it
Are you ready yet?
It’s time to jump
Watch as people overtake
Leave you in a state of darkness
Questions give me peace of mind
Working over time it’s not too late
Quiet creeping up on you
You know what to do

Remember this world
Is yours
This world is yours

Take this, don’t be so afraid
Watch the cavalcade of blood spray out
Snap back your anatomy you know what I mean
At least you should
Strike back, witnessing the fear
Tell me what you hear
It’s not your turn
Standing at the edge of it
Are you ready yet?

Remember this world
Is yours
This world is yours

Bomb the system
Fuck the system
Burn the churches
Burn the churches

Remember that this world
Is yours
This world is yours

Last chance, it is not a game
Never be the same,
Will you play?
You should if you wanted to
Make your every move like your last
Question everything you see
Understand the need for diversion
Hold on, life is on its way
Will you have your day?

Remember that this world
Is yours
This world is yours

Just remember when it’s over you’ll regret the things undone
Just remember when it’s over you’ll regret the things undone

Fuck your politics
Your concern is a hoax
Fuck society as it’s all just a joke
Fuck confession as it falls on deaf ears
Fuck the planet; fuck it all we’ve been destroying it for years

Never see what you have
Because of what you’ve lost

You fucked up, you cock-sucking
Motherfucking peace of shit
Get up, stand up, and rise up

You never know what I can do to you baby
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist and you know that
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist and you know that I can take this

Fuck your dreams of ever leaving here alive
Fuck your prayers they come as such a disguise
I really hate that demon look in your eye
You sing all the wrong words and now it’s time for you to die

Never see what you need
Because of ignorance

You fucked up, you cock-sucking,
Motherfucking peace of shit
Get up, stand up, and rise up.

You never know what I can do to you baby
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist and you know that
You never know what I can do to you baby, I’m a sadist and you know that I can take this

***Solo***

You never know what I can do to you baby I’m a sadist and you know that
You never know what I can do to you baby I’m a sadist and you know that I can take this. Baby I’m a sadist and you know that I can take this.

I’ll keep my head down,
Won’t move won’t make a sound.
Stare into space,
Least here I’m not awake.
Back here again?
Can’t expect this to end.
Can’t catch me out,
I make you scream and shout…

I’m not the one. I’m not the one.
I’m not the one, to take the fun out of it for me

Another witness
To your temper
Another witness
To you temper (yeah)

Can’t get much worse,
I’m not what makes it hurt.
Cut the vein,
Blood pours out just the same.
It’s not that time to open up and flee from fear.
You’re not the kind to hold it close and make it real.

You’re not the one. You’re not the one.
You’re not the one, to take the fun out of it for me.

Another witness
To your temper
Another witness
To your temper (yeah)

Cut the vein,
Blood pours out just the same.
In my mind
Will it happen this time?
Here I hide from you when you’re hating.

I don’t think it really sinks in,
When you’re screaming at the world and you makes no sense.
I don’t think it really sinks in,
When you’re screaming at the world and you just don’t fit in.

Break the Silence

Written By: MR. TEMPER

One day my friend we’ll meet again
Next time I’ll bring my courage to
And we can find out the truth

Last night was the last night for me
I just can’t bare this anymore
But you can heal all my wounds

Fixate on all my weaknesses
What else do I have left to lose?
It’s not like I have you

I wish I had the strength in me
To escape from this solitude
Yet my heart weakens near you

Do you feel the same?
Can you stand the pain?
Do you feel the same,
As I do?

Crusade for perfect harmony
Why do I wish for all of you?
I’m not content and it’s true

I want to gaze into your eyes
When will you taste what I do?
Cradle the storm and draw close

Desire makes mice of men I hear
So still, I’m waiting for you
Please break the silence and spill

One day my friend we’ll meet again
Next time I’ll bring my courage to
And we can find out the truth

***Chorus + Solo***

Goodbye my dreams, you’re fantasy
One day I’ll gain the fortitude
To unchain your heart from fear

Shackled by my own ignorance
You’ll grace the wrath of ruin
Desolate timing lays waste

One day my friend we’ll meet again
Next time I’ll bring my courage to
And we can find out the truth

Do you feel the same?
Can you stand the pain?
Do you feel the same,
As I do?

Did you make it home?
Are you all alone?
Did you make it home,
Alright?

Evil Standpoint

Written By: MR. TEMPER

Scream Wha-oh
Die my angel
Scream Wha-oh
This time you’re on your own

I can’t take this, I’m seething
I can’t see straight, I’m drunk
I’m so angry, you’re filthy
Dirty, vial, noxious slut

I hate you, I’m bleeding
You’re putrid, but love cock
This standpoint is evil
I was your rock

This pleasure is fading
I’ve lost all control
You made me this twisted
You broke my soul

You were my guardian
Now you’re my demon
You taught me to be me
Re-think the shock

I know now you’re loathsome
I feel revolted
You’re obscene, offensive
Why don’t you just …

Scream Wha-oh
Die my angel
Scream Wha-oh
Escape to freedom
Scream Wha-oh
Die my angel
Scream Wha-oh
This time you’re on your own

Come face to face with you
Square up to your needs
Provocative actions
Let’s see who bleeds

There’s no way around this
Pathetic exchange
Excuses determine
Roots of the blame

It’s true we both faltered
And now it’s your turn
To yearn and desire
To die and to burn

I’ll watch as the plasma
Seeps out through your eyes
And drown your pathetic
Disgusting disguise

I know now you’re worthless
Condemned to your hell
You’ll drag yourself under
Why don’t you just…

***Chorus + Solo***

It’s over, I’m free now
So vicious and cold
Serious and dreaming
Time to get hold

You make out you’re happy
Inside you’re still dead
Content with that feeling
Scared of all the things ahead

Who were you my angel?
You flew in my dreams
This train track went nowhere
If you feel the same as me just…

***Chorus***

Black Veil

Written By: MR. TEMPER

Flesh tortured decay burns away
Death conquers hatred finally
War cleans out the masses with searing pain
Dark fearful terror you’re to blame

Overt your eyes
And face what should not be
It’s too late to repent
Your soul belongs to me

Coz I am the master now
You must kneel before me
And beg for sanity
Destruction is my vow
The life you lead is not free
I purge humanity

More, you get what you want but you want more
You fuck who you want but you fuck more
You pathetic excuse for a human
Black veil leaves you in ruin

You can’t admit you’re a…

Whore infectious disease plagues the streets
Lies twisting the truth with blind deceit
Hells army rises from charcoal
Horned demon corpses claim black souls

Overt your eyes
And face what should not be
It’s too late to repent
Your soul belongs to me

Coz I am the master now
You must kneel before me
And beg for sanity
Destruction is my vow
The life you lead is not free
I purge humanity

More, you get what you want but you want more
You fuck who you want but you fuck more
You pathetic excuse for a human
Black veil leaves you in ruin

You can’t admit you’re a…
