      Draconian's second album (2005).

      Draconian's second album is a modern classic of doom metal, surprisingly heading into even darker territory than its predecessor, and becoming more or less a slowed-down death metal album. Taking obvious influence from My Dying Bride and Mourning Beloveth, this is death-doom metal of the finest variety, lacking a little in memorable melodies but creating an excellent mournful atmosphere. The only slightly jarring element is the persistent narrative that interrupts the flow, mostly towards the beginning or end of songs, narrating a Paradise Lost-style angel's lament.

      Most of the songs follow a similar style, and this time the balance is disrupted to favour the growls and speech of Anders Jacobsson over Lisa Johansson, the latter often being used merely as a lighter supplement but occasionally being offered pride of place, as is the case in the more melodic 'Heaven Laid in Tears.' As an album of slow, drawn-out, emotive compositions, there isn't a great deal for variety, but the band still pulls it off with a faster section in the middle of 'The Apostasy Canticle' and the ultimate face-off, the fifteen-minute finale 'Death, Come Near Me.'

      1. A Scenery of Loss
      2. Daylight Misery
      3. The Apostasy Canticle
      4. Expostulation
      5. Heaven Laid in Tears (Angel's Lament)
      6. The Abhorrent Rays
      7. The Everlasting Scar
      8. Death, Come Near Me
