ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We see it in books, in movies, in documentaries and even on the 1$-bill. We hear references in Jazz and Classical Music, but now there is Popmusic inspired by the rich tradition of Freemasonry.

With the conceptalbum The Temple of Humanity by the band Freestone, Freemasonry is entering Popular Music for the first time. What is Freemasonry, what is its purpose, what are freemasons up to in their lodges, does the United States of America have Masonic roots and what is the meaning of the all-seeing eye? The Temple of Humanity doesn’t directly give answers, but provides a discovery through symbols and rituals of the mystical tradition of Freemasonry. References can be found in music, lyrics and artwork. No conspiracy theories or unnecessary secrecy, but an authentic story based upon personal experience translated in twelve powerful songs.

The album is composed and produced by someone who is initiated, both in Freemasonry as well as in music. In co-operation with experienced musicians, The Temple of Humanity is a professional produced authentic and unique album. The packaging and booklet contain fascinating art and artists from different countries (of whom a few are masons themselves) have contributed their work.

Freestone makes pop- and rockmusic based upon different themes that can be commonly found in popmusic. Music and artwork are contemporary and the album shows that in the popcommunity and in the changing music industry, there is still place for something new. The album in interesting for music lovers who are in search for something different. Discover the mystery and listen to The Temple of Humanity.

Temple of Humannity
Innovatively done, excellent effort, as an ardednt Freemason came across classical compostions only till now, the artist ventured into a new ground by taking the genre of Rock into Freemasonry and moving with the times, only disappointment was CD was only an audio CD and had it been a VCD as what is on You Tube the pleasure of the CD would have been doulbe

Excellent album full of lush synth melodies
Looking for something new and different? Then you should give a listen to the album “The Temple of Humanity” by pop/rock band Freestone. This band emulates the cosmic tones familiarized by Pink Floyd and does a great job at reproducing those sounds. “The Ancient of Days” is a mellow song, featuring talented saxophone playing that makes the instrument sound almost as if it is singing. The title track exhibits a relaxing drum beat and equally soothing vocals. The instrumentation on this disc drips of Pink Floyd, with lush synth melodies and haunting guitar work. Although the material of Freestone’s “The Temple of Humanity” is rare compared to what is “standard” today, it is a great listen for any Pink Floyd fan or ancient ritual buff and should definitely be checked out.
