Temple Koludra - Biography




Temple Koludra was founded in 2010. Musically, T.K. can be located between the genres of aggressive, chaotic, modern Black Metal and experimental Ambient music.

The meaning of „Koludra" could be rendered as „concurrence of the whole". The word is deduced from the latin term „Colubra", which means colubrid, snake. It is further connected to the meanings of Ouroboros, the whole, and of the English verb „to collude". These diverse origins of its name mirror the universal approach of the project.

The art of T.K. aims at the creation of a connection, a gateway for the transition between the artificially polished modern spirit and the raw, chaotic current of the primordial consciousness that rests in all things and can never be fully erased.

The lyrics put into words symbolistic visions of rituals, strange rites of passage and summoning, which evoke an escape from habitual, familiar patterns and a quest for authenticity and clarity. In some passages, Norwegian, German, English and onomatopoetic elements are combined into a single language in order to expand the limits of expression through accentuations and sounds.

In 2013, Temple Koludra released their first eponymous EP containing 5 tracks. Five years after this self-recorded EP, which was received extremely positively by listeners and press, and after a long process of creation and even more delays, the long wait found an end. The album „Seven! Sirens! To A Lost Archetype" will be released via Transcending Obscurity Records on Jun 14th 2019.
