Out of Ohio, USA comes TEMPLE 8, a very sensational Progressive Rockband a la RUSH. Their debut CD ‘Enter the temple’ has a playing length of more than 60 minutes, and is from start to finish quite impressive. Leader of the band is KURT TISCHER, who is playing guitar, bass, organ and also sang! Kurt has got a very good voice, somewhere between DENNIS DEYOUNG of STYX fame and GEDDY LEE of RUSH fame. Highlights on the CD are “Ideas of the mind” (straight-ahead uptempo Prog Rocker), “At the summit” (strong melodic Pomprock chorus), “Danger zone” (great up-tempo prog melodic rocker) and “The big picture” (9-minute epic Progrock). This is a highly recommended piece to Prog Rock fans...
