Diachronia - _XX's Decline_
(Independent, 2000)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7 out of 10)
From Poland comes this rather competent self-released full-length record with which Diachronia showcase their blackened symphonic metal. Featuring decent production and layout, _XX's Decline_ is an equally reasonable record as far as the band's songwriting and performance is concerned. Mid- to fast-paced, somewhat blackened but generally more preoccupied with good guitar solos and keyboard passages, the songs flow nicely, even though there's nothing particularly brilliant about them. Diachronia are a band who could be on their way to a very good release: they show skill and some ideas on this record, and for the time being have produced a pretty good and quite listenable album that they can use as a stepping stone to achieve something more ambitious in the future.
