Scald




Russia - Active.

Description

Epic Doom

Scald were known as the only Russian Epic Doom band, formed in Yaroslavl in 1993 and mixing Bathory-style Viking Metal with Candlemass-style Doom. Musically, majestic slow riffing, strong solos and epic clean wailing vocals were the central focus of their compositions. The band acquired cult status, which continued to grow after their disbandment in '97.

Since reforming in 2019, the band have only played live, no new studio work is available yet.

Misc

Prior to Scald (meaning a Scandinavian bard), the vocalist and drummer were in precursor band Росс ('Ross', an old form of Rossiia, meaning Russia). The band never released anything, but their recordings were included on the Scald compilation 'Agyl's Saga'.

Scald's only full-length album was originally released in 1996 with the title 'Will Of Gods Is A Great Power'. All subsequent re-releases were from a remaster which amended this to 'Will Of The Gods Is Great Power'.

The band split up after their vocalist Agyl (Maxim Adrianov) died in 1997, with most of the members going on to found Folk Metal outfit Tumulus and later Death/Doom/Pagan band Intothecrypt.

In 2019, the four original musicians joined with vocalist Felipe Plaza Kutzbach (of Procession, amongst others) for a performance at the Hammer Of Doom festival. This proved so successful that the full-time reunion of Scald was made official.
