HUMAN TEMPLE picture
Human Temple is a Finnish hard rock band, whose style draws upon Kiss, Mötley Crüe and Dokken. In recognition of this, the band is included in the MMA.

From their entry on Escape Music's webpage: "The foundation of the Temple was laid way back in the late eighties, when vocalist Janne Hurme and drummer Petri Lehto formed their first band. The guys were highly influenced by Kiss, Dokken, Crüe and such bands, so the style of the music just had to be hard rock, yet always with a keen ear for a good melody.

Fast forward to1995... Janne was signed as a solo artist, and given an album's worth of more pop type of material to sing. He sang it with conviction, and once the album was released, he became a major star almost overnight. Among other hits, the album spawned "Kirje", one of the biggest hits of the nineties in Finland.

Genre: melodic metal

Hey, this stuff is pretty good! Drawing a lot on AOR and commercial melodic hard rock, this album is still heavy enough in terms of riffage that I would consider it a metal album.

True, there are melodic keyboards, and many of the figures delivered via the keyboards have a certain 80s pop-rock feel to them. And, yes, there are catchy melodic choruses with commercial mass appeal. And, yup, there are romantic power ballads perfect to heal broken hearts.

But this is neatly counterbalanced by heavy metal guitars and chucking powerful metal riffage, twin guitars and uptempo drumming. Just check out a track like the uptempo Maiden-inspired 'I Will Follow', which is a perfect ass-kicking album opener or the groovy 'Misery'. And, perhaps surprisingly to some, this combination of melodic AOR-elements and heavy metal riffage works impeccably (of course this owes to the massive talent involved in Human Temple - not everyone can achieve this sort of balance).

So, fans of hard rock and classic metal should find this release enjoyable - it's melodic AND it rocks hard!
