This new, very limited edition two tracker is not just a teaser for the new album but a vital release for fans of this band that was originally from Chile. There is one new original and a cover version of Scald's "Nightsky." What is unique about the cover is it sounds like a song made for or written by Procession themselves. Scald are a very obscure band from Russia so it is likely that most folks out there have never heard their underrated classic album 'Will Of The Gods Is Great Power’ so this cover version will sound like another Procession original to most people. What they do with the song is give it the Procession treatment while keeping the vibe of the original intact but it pales somewhat compared to the brand new Procession track, 'Death And Judgement.' The new tune is not much different from other works from the band but in terms of quality, it is right up there with the very best of Procession songs. It has the classic trad-doom feel, a-la Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus with some Hour of 13 thrown in but with a totally original edge that is all Procession. The vocals are again, amazing while the melody lines are instantly memorable. Just one spin of the song is all it took for me to be hooked in this great track. The production is loud, heavy and precise and the red and black cover art is striking to look at. For fans of the band, this is essential especially if it doesn't end up on their new full length but fans of doom metal in general wont want to miss out on this. Awesome release from Processsion. ....9.5/10.
