Somehow appropriately paired with fellow Frenesia label sampler, thanks to the invaluable Italian label Brutal Forms, Templer is the project of the Occitanian industrial chevalier Thomas Chaladon under which he designed his very own idea of Rhythmic Noise and harsh Techno for more than an hour of uncompromising, ominous and fierce dancing session.
