Daedalean Complex are a band from Quebec, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a symphonic mixture of black, goth and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "After The Fall" which was released by PRC Music.
Symphonic sounding keyboards start off the album along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later while the music also mixes the symphonic and heavy parts together along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic fashion.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard while the vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with a few death metal growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses elements of goth can also be heard and some tracks also bring in a small amount of clean male and female vocals and a couple of the songs are very long and epic in length.
Daedalean Complex creates another recording that remains true to their symphonic and melodic mixture of black, goth and death metal from previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover mythological and metaphysical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Daedalean Complex and if you are a fan of symphonic, goth, black and melodic death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Fall Of Icarus" "The Illusion Of Freedom" "The Cosmological Riddle" and "To Etemenanki". 8 out of 10.
