Dark Lay Still
|Album: "Joy in the Throes of Agony"
Dark Lay Still!. They are a melodic California Christian Unblack band with great potential.
I know the one of the guitarist through AIM and there a pretty cool band. i first heard of them a long time ago when they were band of the month for JesusMetal.
now i have there demo AND Shirt (sweet) and im praying for the day they come to Miami, Florida. check this out while you still can!
The first song is called "Mist Driven By Storms". its a
unique song and i have not heard anything like this. the singer
does this death type growl through the whole song while the
keyboarder plays some of the best and most beautiful keyboards i
have ever heard. wow brutal vocals yet soft beautiful music. its
really cool it might take some time to get use to it but its
nice. The next song is called "Kings of Old" and its the oldest
song here. i first heard it and downloaded it off Jesusmetal and
its been a classic for me. production is not too great but black
metal goes well with it. the least melodic and one of the more
furious of the songs on this demo. pretty good with pure black
vocal. The next song is by my opinion the best. its called
"Immortal Beloved" and its soft at the beginning with his
growls but then breaks though darkness with black metal fury. at
about 2:50 in the song it goes into a sweet breakdown that can
make you tare up your room in a one man pit. good keys and
guitars. also i like the alteration of the growls with the
screeches. the last song is called WBTBH which stands for "White
Blades Through Black Hearts". pretty cool declaration of war
against evil! starts off melodic and then goes into stuff
similar to the previous song. i like the drumming a lot and i
first thought it was a drum machine but its just he is FAST.
this song is also pretty extreme compared to other parts of the
cd. this is also a really awesome song that is a great conclusion
for this sweet cd. this song ends with this dude saying "Many
people loose there faith because heaven shows them too little,
but how many people loose there faith because heaven shows them
too much?" its pretty true too. then the song goes on with keys
for a while and at the end it seems like the song will start
again. i really loved this cd, I just wish more songs were here
to listen to.
The only place I know to get it is at
www.manifestdistro.com . hopefully there some left for you.
I truly recommend it for fans of raw melodic black metal with
faith in Christ. hopefully the lyrics will be included next
time. the shirts are still there only for large though. I wish
they had extra large but its ok. the painting on the front is
Elijah at the valley of dry bones and on the back there is some
