The Finnish rockers’ last studio album Untamed finished at #5 on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2019 to which Sleaze Roxx stated: “Finnish rockers Temple Balls remind me of German “stadium” rockers Kissin’ Dynamite last year in that they hit the nail on the head sound wise and were able to successfully manage the fine line between melodic and sleaze rock to come up with one of this year’s best album releases. There is some significant growth between Temple Balls‘ latest offering Untamed and their previous effort Traded Dreams as the Finnish rockers really seem to have found their sound this time around.
This is a band on the rise as the group was recently the special guest for Sonata Arctica on a number of tour dates throughout Europe. Temple Balls will be continuing to open for Sonata Arctica during more European tour dates in early 2020 before touring with fellow Finnish rockers Shiraz Lane in February and March 2020. It will be interesting to see what direction that Temple Balls take on their third studio album, which will hopefully come out sooner rather than later. Will the Finnish rockers play relatively safe and stay with their sound on Untamed or will they continue to push the envelope and at the same time risk alienating their current fanbase like so many other “younger” bands have done in the past?”
