Dew-Scented call it a day

Posted in Misc., News with tags , , , on 22nd May 2018 by izaforestspirit

Sad news for fans of Dew-Scented. The German thrash metal quintet have announced that they will be splitting up this autumn. Here’s an extract from an official statement from the band:

DEW-SCENTED are no more!

A message from the band themselves…

DEW-SCENTED are no more!

All good things must come to an end…

And it’s now been 26 (!) intense years of sacrifices for the thrash metal cause for us. Despite numerous setbacks, DEW-SCENTED never split up or even stopped for any significant amount of time. We were always blessed with great opportunities and a strong will to soldier onwards.

All in all, we have had an amazing ride with this music we love and not only played countless great shows across the globe, but released ten (!) albums and most importantly, we made tons of life-long friendships along the way because of the band.

But it’s time to realize that we won’t be able to forge ahead much further because DEW-SCENTED just won’t work without complete and constant dedication. And giving such a full-time commitment simply isn’t possible anymore because of how life otherwise evolved throughout the years.”


Before they call it a day they will complete one final tour in Germany. This will include the last show in their hometown of Walsrode.

Here is the schedule:
SA 23.06.2018 Protzen (Germany) – Protzen Open Air / Sold Out!
FR 24.08.2018 Nucknitz/Bautzen (Germany) – Nukstock Open Air
SA 25.08.2018 Wiernsheim (Germany) – Riedler Open Air
FR 05.10.2018 Paderborn (Germany) – Metal Inferno Festival
SA 06.10.2018 Walsrode (Germany) – JZ Mittendrin / Final Show!

Dew-Scented launch lyric video

Posted in News with tags , , , , , on 18th July 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson, the North Sea Poet

Moving another step closer to the release date of Dew-Scented‘s Icarus on July 30th in the UK, we are happy to announce that the good people at Metalsucks are offering a worldwide online premiere of a lyric-video for the song Storm Within off the new album. You can check it out here.

Dew-Scented guitarist and songwriter Marvin Vriesde checked in to comment about the track as follows: “I really dig how the riffs and drums in ‘Storm Within’, have almost a mechanical feel to them. I thought it would be cool for Dew-Scented to do a heavy double bass driven song with a lot of heavy, chugging guitars. So I took the chance to make it happen. The heavy character of the song also allowed Leif to do some deeper vocals. The deep vocals fit the song perfectly and add a bit of extra dynamic to the album. Chances are, that this song is gonna go down really well when we play it live”.

Icarus will be released as a limited first edition Digipak including 3 bonus tracks as well as on vinyl (black and limited coloured versions) on July, 30th via Metal Blade Records in the UK!

Icarus track listing:
01. Hubris
02. Sworn to Obey
03. Thrown to the Lions
04. Storm Within
05. Gleaming Like Silver
06. By My Own Hand
07. The Fall of Man
08. Reawakening
09. Destined to Collapse
10. A Final Procession
11. Perpetuated
12. In Dying Mode (bonus track)
13. Steady Decline (PRONG-cover/bonus track)
14. No Spiritual Surrender (INSIDE OUT-cover/bonus track)
