The saga of Hercules II continues….
Another sweat soaked journey through the dark murky waters of noisy, dirty rock music drifting through the langourous tensions of collapse, despair, melancholy and toil amid the grasp of Poseidon tightening his grip on all those aboard, sucking them deep down into his lair and following the valiant escape, the Temple Of Poseidon album was built in his honour and perhaps immortality achieved as a result. This journey is truly epic scale adventure in Outsider music.

‘Temple Of Poseidon’ is a collection of 10 Post-Instrumental songs of passive-aggresive doom laden malevolence spiked with just a hint of grinding punknoise, drifting around the battered edges of the assorted genres of Post-Armageddon Rock with all the tension of a dormant volcano about to erupt.
No compromize. No mercy. No prisoners.

Hercules II albums are an obscure beast, all to often the hard to find stuff of collectors dreams, multiple and differing editions of releases that hide in plain sight most of the time. Nobody is quite sure how many releases exist, some say four, some say twelve. This is most definitely the third album release on Radiowave Recordings after ‘Herculaneum’ (RWR11) and ‘Poseidon Avenged’ (RWR15). The attitude behind this hazy set of releases appears to create a greyness informed by the dis-illusion of freedom and choice made prevalent with todays e-commerce culture vultures shooting up in their tiny corner of the world. This release alone (so far) has 3 editions. CD, Cassette & Download.

Hercules II is a willfully ambiguous project initially put together by the reclusive Dane, C. Poulsen, a paranoid and somewhat Joe Meek or Brian Wilson of a character. His very much off-grid existence is the ship which guides this project. The remainder of the musicians who perform are a loose collective of friends with a distinguished history of heavy noise making and all more than happy to rally for the flag. C. Poulsen himself plays guitar on these recordings (and very, very rarely perfroms live). Ashley Davies (Headbutt, London Dirthole Co etc) plays one of two earthshattering basses alongside Chris P. (Headbutt, Silverfish). Out front is the (non)-flying V guitar formation of Robert Lewis (Pulkas, LDC), Fuzz (Silverfish), GG (Midnight Mines, LDC), Sebastian Büttrich (18th Dye, Test) who pick at the scabs to bleed and blister the sonic shards of Poulsens compostions and last but not least, bringing up the rear on cascading drums is one Lewis Richardson (Headbutt, Headcleaner). The mighty Poseidon himself could not have wished for such an earthquake inducing band of warriors.
