Daedalean Complex are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a symphonic and gothic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Rise Of Icarus" which will be re-issued in December by PRC Music.
Symphonic sounding keyboards start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier stuff and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile clean singing goth vocals are added onto the recording and acoustic guitars can also be heard on the recording at times.
Black metal screams along with death metal growls are a very huge part of the recording and the music also brings in elements of industrial and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and some of the songs also bring in female vocals and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody while t he songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the guitar leads a re done in a very melodic fashion and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts.
Daedalean Complex plays a musical style that takes symphonic black metal and mixes it with goth and a touch of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Deadalean Complex are a very great sounding symphonic and gothic mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Shattered Icon" "Chrysalis" and "The Dark path". 8 out of 10.
