New track "Retaliator" with intro (Ride For Revenge) out on No REMORSE RECORDS MARCH 6TH
Arioch! Knight of Swords, deceitful god.
Beyond the sealed sign of chaos. I held your heart, destroyed it.
So Arkyn, Law may right the scale when the balance falls.
Glandyth will ride and I will follow. When he's under my blade, then I can die.
I've banished Gods, The Rulers of Swords and giants, I do not fear The Dog and The Bear.
Fhoi Myore, you ride in mist by chariot.
Bryionak, Retaliator! From an ancient forge the anvils sing!
The Dagdagh Harp, I fear it's song though I don't recall (why).
Moon-colored sword, I name you "Traitor", from a dream I remember, and to which I am tied.
Upon the field, the Mabden have rode and they are ready to die for the Silvern Hand.
With this spear I have brought green back to my land,
and I've seen kings restored by a golden Oak and Ram.
With this steel I have brought doom upon my foes,
Now it seeks my heart and returns me to my home.

So I can't leave a long enough review to say everything I want. But I will say this, I love this EP. It's a great little follow up to times, and has just enough of a dynamic shift in sound to prove that Smoulder isn't a one trick pony with their first album's formula. This one really plays up the 70s prog aspects (DUST and Manilla Road influences definitely shine through even harder here). It's still Smoulder, don't get me wrong. Just a different side in some ways, all of which are good. playfulpooka

Setting aside the Dark Souls theme, because it's been noted at length in the comments. THESE SONGS FUCKING RIP. They would do so if I didn't know anything about the material that inspired it. It's just damn good Power Metal.
