Scald - Will of Gods Is a Great Power (1997)

A true should-be classic of Russian epic doom with viking elements. Passionate, versatile vocals -- this guy hits some serious high notes, and he hits 'em hard -- masterfully paced songwriting, A+ guitar solos, and pretty much anything else you could want from an epic doom record. Sadly, Will of Gods Is a Great Power is the only album Scald recorded before the death of their phenomenally talented vocalist, Maxim Andrianov. A must for any fan of 'traditional' doom or viking metal.

Track listing:
1. Night Sky
2. Sepulchral Bonfire
3. A Tumulus
4. In the Open Sea
5. Eternal Stone
6. Ragnaradi Eve
7. Bilrost
8. Sepulchral Bonfire (Version '94)

Waves will kill your fire
Sea will kill the gods
