Band of the Week: Temple of Dagon

Awaken the almighty Cthulu with California’s Temple of Dagon.

A band whose lyrics are centered around H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of terror, Temple of Dagon unleashes a unique breed of metal blending death metal, thrash metal, doom, crust punk and New York influenced hardcore grooves.

Taking their name from Lovecraft’s “Dagon” story, the band formed in 2009 and released “The Book of Azathoth” EP, which contained a more primitive sound. Temple of Dagon would later perfect their sound on 2014’s “Rituals of the Deep,” their first and only full length record to date.

On January 22, Temple of Dagon announced via Facebook that they will be playing the OC Cruststock Volume 3 festival from June 26 to June 28. Tickets can be obtained at this link.
