Human Temple – “Halfway to Heartache”

Human Temple – “Halfway to Heartache” (Escape Music)

Be still my beating heart! Finland’s premier melodic hard rockers Human Temple are back with a brand new release that will have you rockin and crying your l’il souls out on this excellent release. Passion is the name of game here and it’s lacquered on syrup thick on rock anthems like ‘I Will Follow’ driven my its dual melodic guitars to power ballads like ‘Like A Beat Of A Heart’ to an amazing rock / new wave / goth cover of Fleetwood Mac’s own AOR classic ‘Little Lies’! The foundation of the Temple was laid way back in the late eighties, when vocalist Janne Hurme and drummer Petri Lehto were influenced by the likes of Whitesnake, Dokken and later Danger Danger. But to be frank I’d say these were more inspirations as Human Temple have a hard edge without wimping out whilst keeping that heavy melody – that’s respect in my book even from the most die hard metalhead. Indeed, my body might be an (ancient) temple – but Janne Hurme owns its heart this day!
