TEMPLARS, THE: Out of the Darkness: 7”

After listening to the A side which features the track “Out of the Darkness,” I wasn’t really looking forward to the other song. “Out of the Darkness” seemed to drag on and was making me doubt if telling people I was a Templars fan was really worth the strange looks, but I found the strength inside to flip the record and was once again reassured that Carl and Phil are the two most talented, poignant people making this brand of skinhead rock today. It’s been seven years since these guys’ last release, and through line-up changes and everything else, these guys still know what they’re doing.
