Draconian Biography - Draconian Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

The latest work from the Swedish masters of doom is both tragic and beautiful, and filled with songs of longing and drama. Only Draconian is able to so skillfully follow romantic passages and wonderful female vocal arrangements with the tuned-down walls of darkish riffs and violent vocal passages or even compose dreamy melodies fit for an eternity, only to forcefully tear them down. A beguiling yet heavy fusion of Doom and Gothic Metal.

  • I’ll keep this succinct. I am glad you can’t wear out CDs. I listen to this one a lot. If you like things like the old CD by Tristania, “Widows Weeds”, get this.

    Honestly, it is one of my favorite Doom/Goth metal CDs of all time. Anders could easily do Death metal if he chose to do so, and Lisa just sounds angelic.

    Some of the songs on the CD are simply epic. It’s; dark, driving, powerful and often oddly romantic.

    My favorite tracks on the CD are: Seasons Apart, The Failure Epiphany, Morphine Cloud, Bloodflower, Earthbound, and When I Wake.

    I highly recommend it.

  • I waited for this album to be released and all I can say…one of Draconian’s best! I became hooked as soon as the album started. The song “Earthbound” just reels you in. The female vocals and distant growls bring the beauty in this song to life. I highly recommend this album to fans of My Dying Bride, Swallow The Sun, and Virgin Black.

  • For an average doom-gothic band, this would actually be a good album. But for Draconian, the ones that spawned forth the legendary Were Lovers Mourn, Arcane Rain Fell, and The Burning Halo, this one in my opinion cannot compare. They sped up the tempo slightly, and made the guitars riffier, but left the atmosphere and gloom behind. It’s almost like they were trying to reach the listeners of Temptation Within or Evanescence. The song Morphine Cloud comes pretty close to their old school selves, but the rest of the album almost seems like happy Draconian, if you can imagine such a thing. The stumble is nothing dramatic like when My Dying Bride came out with 34.788% Complete, or when Anathema failed with The Silent Enigma. It is still Draconian, but without anything epic or memorable. If you’re a fan of Draconian, go ahead and get it just to get it. But if you new to the Draconian sound, try their first three albums first. Or better yet, try and snag a copy of Doom:Vs- Aeternum Vale.

  • draconian seems to have reached a new level with this latest album featuring some of the bands best songs to date. musically they have put together some epic tracks with beautiful lyrics and really bring out some great male/female vocals. seasons apart and earthbound are the tracks that stand out as just plain amazing while given time the album in its entirety begins to feel special. im really blown away by the depth this album.

  • Draconian’s depth of darkness is something to behold no doubt but with an element of beauty which shows real class. Turning Season is the best release yet with tracks such as Seasons Apart, When I Wake, Earthbound, The Failure Epiphany and Bloodfower the finest in doom/gothic. The instrument tones, material and production are like daggers through the heart. And then there is Lisa Johansson – truly one of the most endearing and exquisite singers ever. Honestly – I do not get the appeal of the growling thing though and do wish it was just Johansson on vocals. I would consider Draconian to one of top 5 in metal along side of Within Temptation, Lacuna Coil, WitchBreed and Opeth.
