The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News

I hope you all survived the holiday madness and are ready to move forward into a bigger and better 2011. Your buds here at Clawhammer PR were wondering if, by chance, you took the opportunity to escape from the lunacy via Quicksand Dream’s epic Aelin: A Story About Destiny. A nearly undiscovered masterpiece, Planet Metal recently reissued the album and we’d love to hear your thoughts. If you don’t have it already, please get in touch at Clawhammerpr@gmail.com and we’ll get a digital promo sent your way immediately. The band is readily available for email interviews as well, so let the interrogations begin!

A true gem from the heavy metal underground! QUICKSAND DREAM was a treasured obscurity even during its original active period in Sweden during the early 1990s. In 1996, the core duo of Göran Jacobson and Patrick Backlund reconvened to record the ambitious and imaginative Aelin concept album. Upon its completion in 1999, the album was only circulated among friends and has remained largely unheard and unknown until now. With sophisticated and unique narrative-style songwriting and an elegant 16-page booklet to illustrate the album’s epic tale, Aelin: A Story About Destiny is a mandatory release for any fan of Epic Heavy Metal. Fans of Manilla Road, Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, While Heaven Wept, Candlemass, and epic-era Bathory take notice!

 

 
Aelin: A Story About Destiny

1. Prologue
2. A Child Was Born
3.  House of Wisdom
4.  Caress of the Breeze
5. Road Goes Ever On
6.  The Lighthouse Dream
7.  Aelin’s Oath

There’s so much to love on this release that to put it in words is simply impossible…you get great classic metal hooks and grooves to make those into the heavy 70’s and doom pay attention, great chugging classic metal riffs, and the walking bass lines to generate this amazing texture that just comes in quick and completely swallows you up without waiting for the songs to build into 14 minute pieces like a spontaneous whirlpool. Needless to say, this is essential as well.  – Hellride
