On September 16th, Relapse Records will roll out the red carpet for Sumerlands as the band now announce the arrival of Dreamkiller, a ripping and roaring heavy metal affair produced and engineered by the celebrated Arthur Rizk. Big riffs, arena-level hooks, and doom flourishes of the highest order await, as the title track would suggest.

Rizk comments on the track:

“The ‘Dreamkiller’ instrumental section was inspired by Elton John’s ‘Funeral For a Friend’ which has the most evil sounding Bach-like guitar harmonies. I was drawing from the epicness of that song, as well as Judas Priest’s ‘Stained Class’ and Billy Joel’s ‘Movin’ Out’ which to me all typify that big 70s sound.”
