Current and former DYECREST vocalists feature on band’s new EP “Stage Is Set” which includes familiar tracks from their latest album “Are You Not Entertained?“ as well as one previously unreleased track.
Watch the new lyric video for the title track here:
Janne Oksanen, the singer of DYECREST on their debut album, did the vocals for “First Born Angel”. Kimmo Blom (Leverage) interprets the track “Where The Light Was Born”. Current vocalist Mikael Salo sings the acoustic track “Winterblood” that is based on the fantasy novel by award-winning author Helena Waris and also the title track of the EP. There’s also previously unreleased track “Truce” on the EP.
“It was wonderful to attend the composition for the first time with DYECREST when we composed “Truce” last autumn. We achieved to nail some pretty good vocal arrangements inspired by bands like Blind Guardian and Queen.” Mikael Salo backgrounds the process and continues: “It was a true honor to share this release with the extremely talented former DYECREST vocalists.”
The EP was mixed by Miitri Aaltonen and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios.
DYECREST plays some shows this year that will be announced on their official facebook page.
