Terrible - Waste of your life and time.
Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style.
Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings
is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a
qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being
technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.
Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent
broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big
financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually
adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to
keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band,
label, management, promoter, etc.
The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
A Frail Becoming
Daylight Dies new opus, A Frail Becoming, sees the band continuing on the path of the downtrodden. With melancholic yet heavy tones, the album plays out like a sullen winter's day. You are pulled in and taken on a roller coaster ride of emotion, with clean, soulful vocals playing with your emotions. Then in the blink of an eye, the demon appears and is bellowing forth. All in all, this album is solid with some great tempo changes. Fans of Opeth and Katatonia will enjoy this.
