“Tales: Of Humanity And Greed,” the latest full-length from French melodic death metal goliaths, TEMNEIN is out now.
 
Produced by "El Mobo" (Loudblast, ETHS, The Great Old Ones, Eryn Non Dae) at Conkrete Studio in Bordeaux, France, “Tales: Of Humanity And Greed” is a captivating ten-rack journey thematically based on various stories, myths, and legends exploring classic childhood occidental fairy tales, unsung fables from Asia and Inuit lands, pop culture universes (Legend Of Zelda, Majora's Mask, Doctor Who etc.), and much more.

Each story is linked to a common theme: the repetition of human error. Musically, TEMNEIN here employs shorter song structures than previous offerings adding more dynamics to their melo-death foundation.

More doom/death and post-metal influences have crept into the band's sound consequently enhancing the overall atmosphere.

The record comes swathed in the stunning artwork of Vincent Fouquet (Meshuggah, Kataklysm, Moonsorrow, Kampfar, Nordjevel).

Forged in France in 2009, TEMNEIN invokes the spirits of At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity, Ghost Brigade, Insomnium, Opeth, In Mourning, and the like while remaining singular in their output.

The band has released two prior full-lengths: “404 B.C.” (2014) through Mighty Music and “White Stained Inferno” (2017) through Massacre Records, both of which reaped critical accolades from various international metal outlets.

Of “White Stained Inferno,” Decibel Magazine wrote in part, "In addition to a slew of driving, main riffs, TEMNEIN fit in fancy leads, licks and melodies, furious and rhythmic drumming and plenty of vocals.." Added The Metal Observer, "The band effortlessly combine melody and aggression, delivering a number of fantastic songs that will live long in the memory."
 
Over their decade-plus time together, TEMNEIN has toured through Europe, the UK, Russia, and Japan, including support slots with the likes of At The Gates, Beyond Creation, Hate, Mors Principium Est, The Crwn, Svart Crown, and many others.

The band has performed a host of European festivals including Durbuy Rock Festival, HRH Fest, Aalborg Rock & Metal Fest, and Loud Farm Fest, with more live invasions to be announced in the months to come.
