Sadly this is also the only album of Scald. But hopefully they will do it like Sorcerer and come back out of the aether. Favorite track: Night Sky.

Then I listened a third time and became a being of pure sonic energy whose thoughts comprise the whole of reality. So yeah, it's pretty good. My initial reactions to Smoulder were mixed. I was not at first sold on the vocalist nor the sound, but their presentation, art direction, and energy was enough to warrant giving them a chance. Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring grew on me after repeated plays, and proves itself worth the purchase.
With some more exploration of their style and sound, Smoulder should journey into "true classic" territory, and that journey is certainly one I will be following them on.
Coagulating Darkness by Hellripper. Perfect driving music but must remember to keep an eye on the speed limit. PS: Thanks for the 'indirect' recommendation of Evil Invaders! White Horse Hill by Solstice. The new LP from Solstice balances moments of epic metal grandeur with dark, haunted ballads.

So here is Scaldwith their one and only album, more on why later, delivering what probably is one of the most epic sounding albums in the history of metal, without exaggeration. Take the steadiest of riffs proceeding at just above plodding pace, dress them with numerous guitar vignettes, put on the dreamy shroud, and never waver for almost an hour. Yet if you are a fan of both classics, to truly grasp Scald you have to imagine the amalgam of the two. Harmonies laying on top of each other, arpeggiated trippy lengthy solos Night Skysupermelodic passages A Tumulussome of them Russian in feel opening of In the Open Sea — Scald paints a different kind of Viking or Northern dweller.
