Daylight Dies – A Frail Becoming

Reviewed: November 2012
Released: 2012, Candlelight
Rating: 2.0/5
Reviewer: UK Team

It’s hard to know what to expect from a band that you have never listened to before, there’s always that excitement that they may bring something new and exciting to the table, opening your mind to a whole new world of sound, maybe they’ll even become your new favourite band!
Daylight Dies are not one of those bands.

Everything they play is solid, but there is a general whininess to their sound, fair enough they’re playing some hefty melodic doom, but they have eschewed that poetic macabre that is so appealing about the genre and instead created a sound that sounds more like the pitiful complaints of someone whose tea didn’t have quite enough milk in it, that the bus turned up exactly 30 seconds late, or that their BLT was more lettuce and tomato than bacon.

There is nothing that stands out as particularly impressive, but this is decent throughout and this is their fourth studio album, so someone out there must like them.
