Biography

Sonic background in which they have positioned fundaments of their temple may be described as mostly instrumental echoing ride, that varies from psychedelic - space rock, hard rock and old school heavy metal, to ambient and drone sound waves in tradition of 70s kraut and progressive rock, with elements of “post rock”, all influenced by electronic and dub music too. Inspired by local and global politics, infinite areas of space, psychedelic phantasmagorias and visions, sci-fi and weird fiction imaginaries (in cinema and literature), Temple of the Smoke is spreading their message armed with heavy guitar riffing and mellow dreamy melodies, with laboratory of vintage amps, analog and digital synthesizers and organs, and arsenal of vintage tape echoes and various effects.
