Long Island/New York City-based black/death metal cult TELOCH VOVIN has issued a drum playthrough video for “An Eastern Temple.” The song is found on the band’s recently released The Iron Age Of Kali Yuga, a split album with fellow NYC act VISERION,
The band states, “The song ‘An Eastern Temple’ musically focuses more on TELOCH VOVIN’s old-school death metal influences re-envisioned thru our black metal khaoscape.”

TELOCH VOVIN is also undergoing several new lineup changes and will be transforming into a studio-only band after one final performance. Mike Usifer of Prime Evil has joined the band on guitar.
TELOCH VOVIN issues about the cessation of live shows and the addition of Usifer to their ranks, “This has been a discussion amongst our ranks for a while now as it’s become clear that our desires currently run more towards the creation ov music then it’s live performance. So going forward we will be continuing as a studio-only band. And what a way to close one tomb before we open another by playing one final live rite with Evil Incarnate headlining and our longtime friends in Hierarchy at the infamous Omega House. We would also like to thank Telal for all the time, effort and hard work he put into TELOCH VOVIN and we are extremely proud and excited to have our good fiend Mike Usifer joining our Eastern Temple on guitar and greatly look forward to seeing what Khaos we can channel together.”
Mike Usifer states about joining the band, “I first had the pleasure of working with TELOCH VOVIN on the Springtime Holocaust put on by our mutual friend, Ed Farshtey of Armageddon Productions. I dug their sound, and apparently, they liked what I did because a few months later, I was recording and mixing their album. We worked really well together and got along great. I had previously worked with Aaron on another recording project that he slayed, and their drummer Antonio has been working with my band Prime Evil since then. When Grigori informed me of TELOCH VOVIN‘s plans and asked if I would come on as a studio guitarist, there wasn’t any hesitation on my end. We’re all one big metal family, and I’m looking forward to the killer music we’re going to make together.”
