Tempelheks is a psychedelic doom rock experience. Based on the heavy riff of the 70's, Tempelheks experiments with folky and traditional melodies and eery and mystical vocals. A groovy but hard beat drives the desert caravan onward. With the 2014 debut LP, they built the foundation of the serpent-worshipping cult's temple. 

Tempelheks started out as a solo project by HS in 2013 with "Red Forest EP" which got picked up by a doom/stoner channel on YouTube. The unexpected attention motivated to write the self-titled debut album in 2014. Since then, HS has been accompanied by Andreas Prestby (drums, percussion), Espen Sande Larsen (bass, backing vocals) and Sindre Øhman (guitar). Among the band's inspirations you'll find Uncle Acid, Jex Thoth and Egypt as well as Thin Lizzy, Pentagram and King Crimson. A lesser known fact is that all of their lyrics are heavily inspired by characters and events from Robert E. Howard's fantasy universe "Hyboria". Their recent full length "Serpents, Gods and Men" was released August 19th, 2016.

Tempelheks er rett og slett et herlig tilskudd til norsk metal.
