Alexandra and Zachary James are the high priests of Twin Temple, the Satanic Doo-Wop band hailing from the City of Angels.

The band was started on Halloween (a Witch's Sabbath) in 2016 when a destruction ritual was performed, and Alexandra and Zachary stepped into their power as Twin Temple, energetically killing all their previous incarnations up until that point.

Although you may expect heavy guitar riffs and a thumping bass to accompany cries of "Hail Satan," instead you'll hear old-school, classic riffs and Alexandra's crooning voice that sounds straight out of the '60s. While many confine Satan to the likes of black metal, the duo is breaking the notion that Satan has a type. After all, who says Satan wouldn't get down to some classic Americana? Inspired by the golden era of Rock 'n' Roll, Twin Temple rejects conformity of any kind, whether it's through their magick, performance, or sound.

And while a lot of "Satanic" metal bands begin and end their worship of Satan on stage, the same can't be said for Twin Temple. Both their music and their practice of Satanism, on and off the stage, are rooted in the ideals of free will and giving space to those who are often not allowed any.

So no, Twin Temple doesn't drink the blood of virgins or kill babies to sacrifice on the full moon. They are challenging notions about what it means to free the oppressed, fight back against dated and binary ways of thinking, and doing it all while hailing the dark lord himself.

If there's anything to expect with Twin Temple, it's the unexpected.

Electric Six incorporates a variety of styles, resulting in being termed a "genre-blurring" band. The group's sound has been described as a synthesis of "disco, synth pop, glam, and arena rock, including the falsetto vocals of disco, laden with "rampant solos, be they guitar riffs, synth wails, or strutting drums" that enforce the band's "energetic sound. However, the band members themselves have rejected such genre classifications as "disco-metal" and "disco-punk."

Critics have termed their lyrics as "disaffected, angry, ironic and lustful", expressing "macho flippancy" and "tongue-in-cheek pomposity". Dick Valentine has estimated that "90 percent of our songs, maybe even higher than 90 percent" are "about absolutely nothing. Songs by Electric Six are often concerned with subjects such as human sexual behavior, masculinity, dancing, hypersexuality, fast food and fire (The band's official biography states that their debut album Fire was so named because they "noticed an abundance of the word fire on this record and...decided to go with it. Lead singer Dick Valentine had commented on the aforementioned lyrical tendencies in song content with regards to the band's third album:

 [...] for the first time, none of the songs have the word "dance" or variation of "dance" in the title. But fear not. We have songs with "drugs" and "girls" and "tonight" and "night" and "louder" and "party" in the title, so we haven't given up on our philosophy just yet.
