Dark Essence Records have announced that the 16th April has been set for the release of »Electric Temple«, the third full-length album from Superlynx, the Norwegian trio known for its distinctive, genre-defying sound that combines doom, psychedelic and meditative atmospheres with heaviness and droning rock.
As a taste of things to come, the label has released both a single and a video of the title track. The single is available to download or stream on a number of services HERE.
For Superlynx, »Electric Temple« is both a continuation on from their previous album »New Moon« and a further development of moods not previously explored by the band. Poignantly, »Electric Temple« also bears a deeply felt mark left by the tragic death of a close family member.
According to the band, the title of the album is a reference to Jimi Hendrix’s way of looking at music. As they explain: “Our music and lyrics are as always very personal to us and refer to what we go through. Life, music, nature and inspiration is a general focus. We always want to push ourselves and explore deeper, wider and further and we feel this album shows our effort in that respect.

As Hendrix said ‘We call our music ‘electric church music… Because it’s like a religion to us.’ And that is much like how we feel about ours. In music we find so much of what people seek in temples, religions or other spiritual forms – strength to endure trials, peace of mind, ecstasy, safety, hope, community, joy, transcendence etc. In the process of writing our third album this truth only become clearer to us. Music is our temple.”
The album is mixed by multiple Grammy Award winning producer Marc Urselli, who has done sound for Nick Cave, Mike Patton, Lou Reed, Keith Richards, The Black Crowes and countless more.
