Check out video footage of the entire Timōrātus show at the Sanctuary Stage from Audiofeed Music Festival, the festival took place July 4-6 in Urbana, IL. To perform as a full band, David & Courtney Napier were joined by Logan Thompson (guitar), Jethro de Beer (Bass), Mason Beard (drums).

The setlist was at follows:

– Screen Attack
– Slumbering Vision
– The World and the Addiction Machine
– The Root of Unity
– Coming Into Her Own
– Winding Down

Timōrātus started as a way to experiment with harsher sounds and learn more about music in general. Sticking to one specific genre or sound wasn’t interesting so the sound changed with every release as the experimentation continued. Continue reading »

Body of Christ

What happens when three bands come together and contribute songs to make a split album? Well for starters it isn’t just three artist, but a plethora of folks involved in the final output of this album. Every song has extensive set credits rolled out. Bismoth, features Rebekah and Jethro de Beer, which is a South African Black Metal band, TIMORATUS features the husband and wife, David & Courtney Napier, a Black/Death/Grindcore from Kentucky, US and Symphony of Heaven an Unblack/Death Metal band, the brainchild of Logan Thompson from Indiana, US . Three different geographies, but all united for the love of Christ. The album was released on the 19th of March 2019 and is currently available on Bandcamp.

Timoratus 

I start off with “Brothers, you are not alone” by Timoratus, which sets out at a tremendous pace with maddening blast beats and chunky riffs and guttural screams that holds the song together. The lyric sheet helps to decipher the meaning which stays layered within the screams. A bunch of people came forward on the vocal duties for this song, David Napier, Mason Beard, Thomas Eversoul, Jake Martin, Quincy Kane Morris, Max Kevin Ølstøren, Mark-David Palmer, Zack Plunkett, Luke Renno, Mitch Underhill and Peter Watson. Now isn’t that something!  “The Root of Unity” by Timoratus, sets out an chill soundscape as it starts and takes no time delve into the death/grind core with lightning speed beats, high tonal guitars and with the organ barraging only to get us some clean vocals and adding a bit of flavour to this heavy song.  We again have a bunch of folks on the vocal duties with the likes of Anna Martin, Courtney Napier, Johanna Fincher and Stephanie Baker.
