On October 28th 2015 the Belgian band Temptations for the Weak will release it’s new, and second, full length-album called ‘Black Vision’.
Temptations for the Weak was founded in 2011, within the first year a full-length album was written and recorded, “Spoken Silence”. In support of this album a lot of local shows were played, this earned the band a great live reputation. By the end of 2012 drummer Tom T. left the band due to personal reasons, but soon after that a new drummer was found in Timo.O.
Now that the line-up was complete again, the band started writing new songs for the follow up of ‘Spoken Silence’.
A video clip was launched for the song “Underneath the skin” in 2014 and the song was used to enter the Redbull bedroomjam competition. The band won this competition and earned a spot on the Graspop Metal Meeting 2014 bill. This opportunity was the perfect chance to reach out to a bigger audience and get some extra media coverage (Acht-tv, newspapers, webzines etc)
On the Graspop website Temptations for the weak was decribed, we quote:
“Put the best of Machine Head, Killswitch Engage and Trivium in a blender and you’ll be tasting the raw, raging metalcore of this Belgian band on your plate!”
After Graspop the band continued working on the new album. The drumrecordings for the album were done in January 2015. Guitar and bassrecordings were done in March and vocals were recorded in April 2015.
Shortly after the recordings Benjamin P. decided to leave the band and pursue his personal career. Auditions were held in search of a new guitar hero. In Jonas H. the right man for the job was found.
Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, the mixing of the album had to be done again, delaying the schedule once more.
The band found a great partner in Atomika studio to mix and master the new album.
Finally in September 2015 the new cd ‘Black Vision’ was released on digital platforms, the band also played at the second Rock-Pix festival at 24 october look the trailer at the following link
