Posted on January 23, 2024

More information about Terror Management Theory

TEMIC arrived on the scene fully formed. The Prog Report nominated their debut album for best song, video and album of 2023. Of course, the runaway success of Terror Management Theory wasn’t too terribly surprising. After all, these guys joined forces after playing with Devin Townsend, Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy’s Shattered Fortress.

Even when paired down, this band is still a super group. Watch Fredrik Klemp and Eric Gillette flex their tender muscles on this live acoustic version of “Falling Away”.

This video was directed and produced by TEMIC’s drummer Simen Sandnes. It was recorded live at Stora Teatern in Gothenburg, Sweden. The theater is just a floor up from the studio where Sandnes recorded the drums on Terror Management Theory.

Terror Management Theory is riddled with power-prog anthems, though none soar higher than “Falling Away”. The studio recording jumps out of your speakers with booming drum fills and chugging riffs. But while dialed down to little more than brittle, acoustic plucking, this live acoustic version is no less powerful. “I will give in to the eternal night”, Klemp sings, as if preparing to float off and join the great gig in the sky. The way his falsetto lightly shatters against Gillette’s gentle harmonies, it’s like the two are orbiting one another, the way only true superstars can.

“‘Falling Away’ is one of our favorite tracks from our debut album” says TEMIC,  “not only due to the musical elements present on the album version but because of its lyrics and vocal melodies.  That is why Eric and Fredrik decided to grace us with this heartfelt, stripped-down acoustic version that focuses the spotlight on these core elements. Enjoy!”

Terror Management Theory is out now!
