ALBUM DREAM QUEST ENDS
LABEL CRUZ DEL SUR
OUR RATING 82/100
Smoulder, Canadian doom and NWOTHM band, will release new EP DREAM QUEST ENDS, on March 13th on Cruz Del Sur Music.
DREAM QUEST ENDS features two new songs, a cover of Manilla Road’s “Cage of Mirrors,” as well as the three cuts from their debut 2018 The Sword Woman demo.
The artwork for Dream Quest Ends was handled by Michael Whelan.
Dream Quest Ends was recorded in Toronto and Chicago in October 2019 at Swift Road Studios (Chicago) and in Toronto at DNA Music Labs.
The two new compositions, “Dream Quest Ends” and “Warrior Witch of Hel” were originally written by drummer Kevin Hester many years ago and now forged in band’s style.
The cover of “Cage of Mirrors” pays a right tribute to not forgotten Mark Shelton of Manila Road.
Dream Quest Ends may ends the first chapter of Smoulder’s career.
With a successful album and an EP in the books, Smoulder will devote most of 2020 to the live front before taking some time to recharge and regroup for their next adventure.
