Album Review: Daylight Dies – A Frail Becoming

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Sunday, November 4, 2012 at 7:54 PM (PST)

Candlelight Records is lucky to have a band as good as Daylight Dies on their roster. This group is so consistent and embody why metal can be so much more than a cliché  small brained, violent party soundtrack. For anyone who has ever experienced true loss or the types who are up early in the cold morning to reflect, for those who need time to themselves to center their thoughts, Daylight Dies is your soundtrack. I actually save them for when I am in a certain mood and no other band will do. If I listen to them casually it is awesome but soon pulls me completely into murky, if bleakly beautiful, thoughts. It is all to tempting to live in that place.

The best moments of LOST TO THE LIVING were a new high water mark for the band, and it is great to hear that they have not stopped pushing themselves on A FRAIL BECOMING. The  Jens Bogren (Opeth, Devin Townsend) mix is near perfect. Everything that is great about Daylight Dies is still present; crushing, My Dying Bride snail-paced guitar, dynamic and chilling yet warm quieter classical passages, death metal growls that convey actual deep/difficult emotions, intoxicating solos that will make you fucking sob if you drink too much wine. Their albums should be part of every metal collection.
