Daeonia - _Crescendo_
(Candlelight, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (1 out of 10)
Are bands like this still signed? I just don't understand the reason for bands like Daeonia to exist, really. I like gothic music, I really like gothic metal, but gothic rock sounds just too pansy and really unsure of what it is really doing. There is nothing more irritating than hearing some guy singing like he has a stuffed up nose while the overdone keyboards echo in the background and the band keeps up a real pompous rock and roll beat to go along with the keyboards. I personally think Daeonia are one of the worst gothic rock bands I have heard in some time. The music is very bland, never really getting any momentum worth noting. And the lyrics? Don't get me started, but for a laugh read lyrics to "The Bridge and the Ashes". I am sure these guys worked their asses off to get them where they are, but I think people really need to tell them that they need to call it a day or add some real fire to their sound. Regardless of whether they change or not, I'm keeping my distance from this band -- forever!
