Scald from Yarsoslavl in Russia were formed by bassist Velignor in the second half of 1993. A year later their first proper demo tape »North Winds« was recorded. However, it was their cassette album under the original title of »Will Of Gods Is A Great Power«, released in October 1997 on MetalAgen (one of the biggest labels in Russia at the time), that made them an underground cult name in international doom circles. At this point in time their charismatic singer Agyl was already dead (he was tragically killed in a train accident on September 6th 1997), and the band as such didn’t exist anymore. 24 years later, in 2021, High Roller Records issued the ultimate edition of the album under the new title of »Will Of The Gods Is Great Power«. As a result, Scald were gaining battalions of new fans and went on to achieve a whole new level of popularity. After a one-off live appearance at the Hammer Of Doom festival in 2019 and a 7” single called »There Flies Our Wail!« on High Roller in 2021, Scald are back for good with a brand new studio album aptly christened »Ancient Doom Metal«. It was recorded by the four original Scald members Velingor (bass), Harald (guitars), Karry (guitars), Ottar (drums and percussion) plus Felipe Plaza Kutzbach (known for his work with Procession and Capilla Ardiente) on vocals.
