TRACK PREMIERE: North Carolina Doom trio Temptation's Wings debut "I Destroyer"

Hailing from the mountains of North Carolina, Temptation's Wings maybe new to The Sludgelord, however having formed in 2005, they have been writing and releasing music for over 10 years now.    With a few albums and EPs under their belt, it wasn’t until the release of their 2012 EP “Legends of the Tusk”,  that the band finally began to hit their stride, touring relentlessly in support of the record and earning a slot opening for Iced Earth at a home town gig to their biggest crowd to date.  

Fast forward to 2017 and with a new full length entitled “Skulthor Ebonblade” set for release on March 10th, the record is the culmination of over 10 years graft, that has seen them refine their song writing skills and grow into the thrashy doomed infused goliathon they are today.  Taking cues from bands such as Grand Magus, “Skulthor Ebonblade” is the complete package with powerful riffs, propulsive rhythms, and emotionally penetrating vocals that will immediately imprint upon your memory. 

Skulthor Ebonblade” will be released on CD and digital formats on March 10 and you can stream the track “I Destroyer” below.  The CD version will include an acoustic bonus track called "Solitude." The album was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Andy Bishop at Giraffe Studios, Hendersonville NC, with the impressive artwork by none other than David Paul Seymour.  You can preorder/buy a copy here
