Current and former Dyecrest vocalists all feature on the band’s new EP “Stage Is Set”. The latter also includes familiar tracks from their latest album “Are You Not Entertained?” as well as one previously unreleased track.
“Are You Not Entertained?” debuted as 7# on official Finnish physical album sales charts. And now, the band has also released a special EP that features all of the three singers of Dyecrest.
Janne Oksanen, the singer of Dyecrest on their debut album, did the vocals for “First Born Angel”. Kimmo Blom (Leverage) sings on the track “Where The Light Was Born”. Current vocalist Mikael Salo is featured on the acoustic track “Winterblood”. This song is indeed based on the fantasy novel by award winning author Helena Waris and also the title track of the EP.
On this EP, Mikael Salo comments:
“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 byt bands like Blind Guardian and Queen. It was a true honor to share this release with the extremely talented former Dyecrest vocalists.”
