Temple Hymns Vol.1

Introduction at Society of the Silver Cross & King Dude new release

“Temple Hymns” is the new musical collaboration between Society of the Silver Cross and King Dude.

In a collaboration between titanic figures of music, Society of the Silver Cross and King Dude come together to unveil “Wife of the Sea,” the opening track of Temple Hymns Vol. 1. Guided by Joe Reineke and Karyn Gold-Reineke, Society of the Silver Cross, along with T.J. Cowgill, known for his involvement with King Dude, embark on an artistic exploration journey at their customised studio, Temple of the Trees, in Seattle, WA.
Renowned for their melodies and their prowess in yogic metal, Society of the Silver Cross joins forces with King Dude, a luminary in the field of luciferian folk. Together, they create a sonic narrative that challenges conventions, drawing inspiration from the mystery of the occult and the ethereal allure of the sea.

The creation of “Wife of the Sea” unfolds naturally as Joe, Karyn, and T.J. immerse themselves in a realm of creative synergy. From the depths of Temple of the Trees, where handcrafted wood treatments resonate with the echoes of ancient spirits, emerges a song steeped in mystery and transcendence.

As the haunting melodies of “Wife of the Sea” reverberate, Temple Hymns Vol. 1 sets the stage for a series of transformative collaborations. With each track, Society of the Silver Cross and their esteemed collaborators invite listeners on a journey of self-discovery and introspection, blurring the lines between reality and imagination, while the music transcends earthly limitations.

Society of the Silver Cross and King Dude open the doors to a voyage into the unknown, where waves of creativity crash against the shores of possibility. Temple Hymns Vol. 1 invites to immerse yourself in a world where artistic expression knows no bounds and the music resonates throughout eternity.
