Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell (2005) Retail CD
I must admit that after hearing that Draconian were releasing a second album, I was both excited and worried. Excited because I loved their first album and I couldn't wait for new music, but also worried because of the news that they would be re-recording one of my all-time favourite songs, "Death, Come Near Me", and I couldn't imagine how that song could sound any better.I needn't have worried. This album is, if anything, better than "Where Lovers Mourn". There is not one song that is out of place, not one song I don't like, and despite my previous skepticism, the re-recording of "Death, Comemore… Near Me" is masterful. While the album centres around themes of the arcane and the occult, there is also something deeply personal to this album that I feel many people can identify with. Draconian have nailed their style with this album.The music is at all times beautifully haunting, and while "Arcane Rain Fell" concentrates much more on the male vocals than "Where Lovers Mourn", the female vocals are beautifully done. They're bittersweet, sorrowful and yet retain a warmth that adds a ray of light to a dark soundscape.It's hard to choose favourite songs on this album, as they're all perfect for the feel and atmosphere of the album. "A Scenery of Loss" is a wonderful opening track which slowly builds up to a crescendo of emotion before bringing the listener back down, ready for the next song. "Death, Come Near Me" is the perfect finale, and while different from the demo version I fell in love with, it is no less beautiful. It's a musical journey of loss and hopelessness, leading to one of the most amazing and hopeful epilogues I have ever heard.I would definitely recommend this album to any dark metal fan.
