Album Notes
In July of 2001 multi-instrumentalist/songwriter, Kurt Tischer and Drummer/Percussionist, David Clark met as unsuspecting members of a recording session for an otherwise low key demo project that would become the catalyst for what is now Temple 8. By October 2001 the first few Temple 8 songs were streaming from music websites all over the Internet and garnering attention from fans in America and even moreso in Europe.

Temple 8 hits a Home Run with their apt titled debut, "Enter The Temple", using poetic and politically charged lyrics to illustrate the stark state of world affairs, driving toward spiritual awakening, all laid out and wrapped around a superb epic musical platform.

Let these anonymous comments and reviews from listeners all over the Internet speak for themselves:

"BAM ! THIS ROCKS!", "Defies tradition...", "Driving riffage...", "Thick and chunky...", "Rockin' Epic...", "Exciting!", "Stadium ready...", "This screams dynamics..."

"Full of melodic chords and vibe...", "Cool big open space rock..."

"Much more put together than many bands out in the professional market."

"Powerhouse!!! --
Wow ...the intro blew me away and really got my attention. Great production work. Nice guitar and melody. Interesting harmonies. Brilliant arrangement, everyone is tight. You've got some good dynamics in there as well."

"Mellow Machine --
Relaxing inflection of a completely self asorbed machine. Kinda Floyd-ish with a touch of Symphony X."

"This stuff is amazing! Great talented musicians! Reminiscent of Tool or Rush done with originality."

"Holy smokes! I like this a lot. It has the chingy-changy intro and interludes of the Boomtown Rats (not to mention a Geldolf-ian rap), the vocals of a DeYoung/Geddy Lee hybrid and ripping bass lines."

Bill MacKechnie (ANUBIS SPIRE)

There's a storm coming....
In case you haven't noticed, there's a sneaky revolution going on; progressive music that had been pushed from the mainstream by musically hollow fashion and posturing is rising phoenix-like in a slew of incredible new prog bands, and right up there on the front lines is Temple 8! With incredible writing and monster chops, this is a band and CD that is not to be missed! If you thought that intelligent, passionate proggressive rock was a thing of the past, buy this CD and find out just how wrong you were. Prepare to be blown away, this is only the beginning...


Shame u cant give 6* - Cant wait for the next chapter !!


mystical, trance takes you into another dimension
style of rock with mystical electronic sounds coupled with powerful yet soothing vocals that paint vivid pictures....I'm not a big rock fan myself, but this cd definetally captures my attention, good job. I'll be looking foward to the next album


In a word, jammilicious!
In a word, jammilicious. In a paragraph, I'll say this album is one that the fans of progressive rock MUST have in a well rounded collection, and those who haven't yet developed a taste for progressive rock, just may do so with this offering from Temple 8. Dave and Kurt, assisted by contributions from George Belinsky and Bobbi Holt, have generated a stunning masterpiece here. It has all the required elements and goes far beyond any expectation. Kurt Ticher has created an album that should sit right on the store shelves next to the greats of rock, and outsell them.

The Best CD I've bought this year
This CD is the complete package. Technical guitar, bass and percussion put together in a flowing package of sounds. Very professional. This is no garageband recording on somebody's home pc. If you like Rush, Dream Theater or Pink Floyd, this CD is a MUST addition to your CD collection.
