      Daylight Dies' second album (2006).

      Daylight Dies' second album finally goes some way towards establishing the band's own sound, even if they still essentially owe everything to Katatonia's 'Brave Murder Day.' Nathan Ellis' vocals are superior to those of his predecessor, deep and powerful in every song, and the guitars now stand out rather than fade exclusively into the background, the pleasant lead melodies at the end of 'A Life Less Lived' actually making me wish for more as they faded to silence. The style is still dominated by slow, plodding drums, and while this keeps things nice and accessible, it does hinder the effect of the more sorrowful songs like 'All We Had.'

      The last two songs hint towards more experimental tendencies to come, with a clean singing melodic introduction to 'Lies That Bind' followed up with the great instrumental 'Dismantling Devotion,' which doesn't try to show off at all, but is content to exude a classic doomy atmosphere.

      1. A Life Less Lived
      2. Dead Air
      3. A Dream Resigned
      4. All We Had
      5. Solitary Refinement
      6. Strive to See
      7. Lies That Bind
      8. Dismantling Devotion
