Smoulder - 'Victims of Fate' (official audio)

The champion is
To bear The Black
Sword for eternity

From another plane
Through the winds of time
Forever to fight for the

Of the higher worlds
Nameless entities
Threatening the balance

In the end
Heroes and gods
Are just Victims of Fate!

A strangely familiar desolate shore
Perhaps in a dream I traversed it before
A dark ship cloaked in mist awaits
Upon we sail the seas of fate

Chosen for the greatest task
Where the future will meet the past
I’ll soon forget all that I saw
Amongst swirling visions
Beyond chaos and law...

Then we become
The four who are one!
Greater than the sum

From the jaws of chaos we escaped
Alone in a strange future I awake
Given a small chance to prevail
Upon the seas of time we soon will sail

I raise the witch’s knife into the storm,
I call upon
The last king of Melniboné
With the third one drawn to our side
The Vanishing tower appears,
Within the sorcerer hides...

Now we become
The three who are one!
Sorcery undone

I met you once before,
Your name was Ilian
I have had many names,
I am a companion to you and your brothers
The time of the conjunction is here
You will determine the fate
Of the million spheres

Have I not earned the peace of
Where are you?
I wish for release
Will I find you in
I wait for the end in
For some it’s near, for some it’s far
I’ve paid the price for this burden

Στο Καναδέζικο συγκρότημα Smoulder πρωτοαναφερθήκαμε προ πενταετίας παρουσιάζοντας το ep - demo "The Sword Woman". Πρόκειται για μπάντα, η οποία απευθύνεται (κυρίως) σε όσους αρέσκονται σε (κατά βάση) αργό, βαρύ, επιβλητικό epic doom metal και μας συστήνεται κάπως έτσι:

«Smoulder play epic heavy metal in the tradition of Tales of Medusa, Solitude Aeternus, Manilla Road, early Blind Guardian and Fates Warning. Fantastical heroes yielding mystic swords and arcane sorcery await...»

Μας έρχονται από την αντίπερα όχθη του Ατλαντικού και δηλώνουν ως επιρροές μπάντες όπως οι: Solitude Aeternus, Candlemass, Reverend Bizarre, Blind Guardian, Procession, Altar of Oblivion, Black Oath, Crone, Lord Weird Slough Feg, Brocas Helm, Omen.

Προ τετραετίας κυκλοφόρησε ο πρώτος "ολοκληρωμένος" τους δίσκος υπό τον τίτλο "Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring". Η συνέχεια δόθηκε το 2020 με το ep "Dream Quest Ends". Την σκυτάλη παίρνει το full length album "Violent Creed of Vengeance", το οποίο έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει τον επόμενο μήνα μέσω της Cruz del Sur Music...
