RockmusicRaider Review - Draconian - Arcane Rain Fell - Album CoverIt is winter time again. Well, not quite yet, but we are almost there. And it is definitely cold enough for my thin blood running in my veins. The countryside gets more desolate by the day with murky light and fog everywhere. The weather pelting you with rain, sleet and snow at Thor’s whim. And you ask yourself: Whatever happened to Freyr and his sunny ways?

So, what better time than now to look at an old(er) Doom Metal record with a Gothic flavor. Draconian‘s 2005 second full length album Arcane Rain Fell is a good one to start this series with.

This record really marks the turning point for the band!

Draconian – Sovran (2015) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Draconian - Sovran - Album CoverScandinavia seems to be an endless source of all things #metal. This time we get it from Sweden, where I thought only the happy blonde bombshells dwell – but not so. The 6th studio album Sovran from Draconian is – at its base – real Doom Metal. A powerful brand of Doom wanting to ice the bones in your body and pound you crying into the dust with a deluge of sadness and tribulations. Interesting, how underrated this band is compared to the better known players in the genre. Especially in comparison with the Peaceville Three – myth or not. Draconian are really up there with the best.Got hooked?
