Tony Cordisco Brilliant balance of crushingly heavy doom moments, and upbeat classic metal. This band succeeds in absolutely knowing how to play dynamics to their advantage and get the most out of their epic approach to classic metal. Fantastic production and musicianship make up the foundation here, topped with incredible vocals. While they obviously have one foot firmly in the past, this band also does a great job of bringing that style forward to a modern context in order to realize its full potential. Favorite track: The Sword Woman.

Brian3737 Leave it to Sarah to perfect the one area where I usually have a problem with trad doom or heavy metal: vocals. She made a record better than the ones she recommends. Next to Witcher’s Creed this is the doom album to beat in 2019. Damn near perfect. Favorite track: Bastard Steel.

"What we’ve got here is metal of the dragon-slaying, ass-kicking, stick-to-your-ribs variety, packed full of solos that cleave and chug, vocals that glide and soar, and arrangements that stampede on and on miles." - Bandcamp Daily; This Week’s Essential Releases

The band is brilliant.. sounding as comfortable playing at an Iron Maiden gallop as they are at a Candlemass crawl." - Bandcamp Daily; The Best Metal on Bandcamp April 2019

"Canadian newcomers Smoulder play one of my favorite traditional metal varietals: epic doom, of the sort we rarely hear performed at this level, except by cult acts like Atlantean Kodex, Reverend Bizarre, Scald, and Solstice." - Stereogum

"Let’s say there are two types of bands inspired by Black Sabbath: the kind that love Ozzy Osbourne’s drugged out “Sweet Leaf”, and the kind that like Ronny James Dio’s epic “Sign of the Southern Cross.” OK, there’s way more than two types of bands that mine that creative vein, but the point is, Toronto’s Smoulder are the latter." - Consequence of Sound

"Times of Obscene Evil and Wild Daring brings to mind epic doom outfits like Gates of Slumber and Khemmis. Whereas those acts just used mythological trappings, though, Smoulder don’t hesitate to go full fantasy." - MetalSucks

"[A] six-track masterpiece... Spun from the musical clothe that gave life to Black Sabbath and Dio." - Maehem Underground Media

"The epic dork doom album of the year." - Toilet Ov Hell

Smoulder "paint evocative pictures, sometimes of grim atmosphere and some others of heroic deeds, instantly transferring the listener to the Mythical & Magical world of their lyrics." - Ride Into Glory

"“Powerful as an elder mage’s magic.” - Everything is Noise
