Daylight Dies

Daylight Dies

A Frail Becoming (Candlelight Records)
release date: 10/9/12
by Mike Delano

With Katatonia embarking on a full-on (not entirely un-enjoyable) trip into prog-land, we need bands like 40 Watt Sun and Daylight Dies to satiate our need for melancholy, mid-paced metal. "A Final Vestige" is from this North Carolina quintet's first record in four years, A Frail Becoming, which is filled with lush guitar sounds and a Crowbar-style beautifully-depressed outlook. Like those NOLA sludge kings, Daylight Dies knows not to sink down into their own quicksand of pain, keeping a steady pace to the record and mixing in clean vocals when appropriate.

This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
