Scald was a relatively unknown Epic Doom-metal band from Russia. The band had a strong Viking imagery surrounding them, one you would often find in Black-Viking metal bands. Musically, the band played very Epic sounding Doom-metal. Majestic slow riffing, strong solos and epic clean wailing vocals are at the centre point of their music. The band disbanded after their vocalist Agyl (Maxim Adrianov) died in 1997. The band decided to disband rather then continue after his death. However, in 2003, their debut album was re-issued. Regardless, the band has remained largely unknown, which is a shame as they are a must for anybody into old school epic doom-metal.
