Sweden's DRACONIAN return with their second release, "Arcane Rain Fell". Not unlike "Where Lovers Mourn", it too presents a world of desperation, pain, beauty, and solitude. This is Gothic/Doom Metal: gentle and pleasing, bitter sweet and cutting, and very recognizable through the perfect vocal interaction of Lisa Johansson and Anders Jacobsson. Acoustic lines and driving guitar riffs, as well as changes in tempo and symphonic elements work together to create a dark world full of melancholy. Atmospheric keyboard lines and heavy riffs give way to the increased emotion espousing from frontman Anders—from calm harmony to excruatiating pain—while Lisa's gentle vocals work to bring back the sombre romanticism. The perfect release for those cold winter days, in which one wishes to discover solitude in its most beautiful form.
