Draconian

Originally a three piece formed in Saffle, Sweden in the spring of 1994, Draconian -- at that time -- went by the name Kerberos, and was a metal band that fused touches of death metal, melodic metal, and a little bit of black metal to round out their sound. At the end of that first year, the band took on vocalist Anders Jacobsson, and with the new set up, changed their name to Draconian. The band's first demo, Shades of a Lost Moon, was released in 1996, and was the result of their initial round of songwriting and arranging. A second demo was scrapped in 1997, a fate which also befell their first attempts at creating a debut album, and the group continued to hash out their sound on a series of demos. Although an EP was available in 2000 (the 2 track Frozen Features), it was the 2002 demo work that went by the name of Dark Oceans We Cry that solidified their sound -- adding the vocal work of Lisa Johansson for starters -- and snagging the band a deal, with Napalm Records. Finally, after a number of years fine tuning their sound, Draconian recorded and released the 2003 -- official -- full length debut, Where Lovers Mourn. After fan support was built with the follow up album, Arcane Rain Fell, in 2005, Draconian took a rest from recording new material to rework some old material into an album for long time fans. The collection, entitled The Burning Halo, included work from the Closed Eyes of Paradise demo (dating back to 1999), as well as a handful of new tracks and covers. Finally, in 2007, Draconian got back to the work of crafting album number four (or three, technically speaking.) The resulting work, Turning Season Within, was released in 2008, and was quickly followed by the single, "No Greater Sorrow." ~ Chris True, Rovi

awesome
still sexy
Almost as sexy as Sirenia
I love this band
my new favorite band! the "morning star" is epic! like Lucifer wrote it himself. just beautiful.
This band is focking amazing . Reminds me of swallow the sun.
Wow and wow again...can' t get enough of these guys.
Where Lovers Mourn is their best work...
Pandora seriously needs to get the rest of Draconians discography. To be missing Seasons Apart and Where Lovers Mourn is blasphemy!!!
i LOVE this band. too bad i couldnt find any t shirts on amazon.... these guys are everything I could ask for.
Found this band comparign to My Dying Bride. One happy camper right here!
This old hillbilly likes 'em!!!!
O_o
Thankfully Draconian are here to brighten an otherwise depressed world
the funny thing about Draconian is that there songs are really long...but I never seem to notice it, their stuff is amazing
Love Draconian ^^
Go out and get Turning Seasons Within. At first I didnt really like it. It grew on me heavily and it became one of my most listened to albums. Its soo good. Specifically Earthbound and Morphene Cloud.
obblien
good stuff one of my favorite bands

Anyone ever hear of The Sins of Thy Beloved? Not exactly the same, but it's the only other band that I like almost every song by. Pandora doesn't have them though.
It's doom metal. It's supposed to be gloomy.

They don't have nearly enough of Draconian's material on Pandora.
Draconian kicks a**
I love this band, I haven't heard a suckey song yet by them. Is that chicks voice not the most beautiful voice you ever heard?
They don't have their latest release...or any of their older stuff :(
i hate when people think this is Gothic metal. it's doom metal. (the way i see it there's no such thing as Gothic metal.)
Like it First listen
ohhh! Draconian one of the best doom metal bands for me, and one of no many which still creating beautiful music.
Draconian hadn't get as commercial as many of the greatest band from the 90's such as Theatre of Tragedy(good times: 1994-1998) Tristania (good times: 1997-2007) and others.
that's just my humble opinion.
@Punk Guy: I agree with you, wholehearted l y . It may be overdone, but the beauty and the beast dichotomy makes these bands what they are. This music has its own beauty because of that.
There is nothing wrong with it, it's just that there are so many and the beauty and the beast dynamic is a part of Draconian's sonic signature. Pardon the intellectual pretentiousn e s s , I just couldn't help it.
Whats wrong with being just another metal band with a female vocalist? Female fronted metal is where its at.

I usually dont like grunt style vocals at all, but for some reason I do like Draconian. Go figure.
The Beauty and the Beast vocals are what makes Draconian so good. It's a musical dichotomy, showing both the monstrous and the sublime. Or maybe it just sounds awesome and I'm being a pretentious a**hole. But I truly believe that though. So that's why the Monster and the Damsel needs to be there Benjamin colon. Otherwise they'd be just another gothic metal band with a lady vocalist.
I don't get the Monster vocals with the Damsel! Lots of potential with a huge Handycap. I'll tune out the Cookie Monster.

oooooooooooo o o o o o o o h h h h h h h
I DONT F**KING KNOW WHERE THEIR NEW S**T IS BUT IT IS GOOOD!!!!!!! ! ! ! !
WHERE IS THE NEW ALBUM GODDAMNIT!?! ? ! ? ! ? ! ?
It's about time Pandora put this band on this station. I actually didn't even hear their music until I set up a Slacker Radio account. Anyway, yay!
Punk Guy, Pandora apparently has a knack for putting albums from some bands whose music was better before. Crazy, huh?
I'd have to agree with Plague of Unicorns, the vocals are kinda bland, their older stuff(Why don't you f**king have it Pandora?!?!? ? ) is wayyyy better though. More operatic vocals and just plain better. The new stuff is okay, but nothing like the old stuff.
i think theyre pretty good
jjlk2008
Wow- I can't believe I agree w/ angel- you do have a 'soul" afterall....
hmm... She Dies is pretty epic. I kinda like it!
Draconian sound is like some old school death metal from way back in the day and it is still good now that is hard as f**k to pull off
No American band could ever pull off a name as lame as Draconian.

LOL, this is the largest group of like-minded commenters I've seen in 3 yrs of listening!

Wow, I really dig "The Abhorent Rays" song. Good stuff. Reminds me of Katatonia with Akerfeldt-li k e vocals.
wonderful, I love bands like this that combine heavy distorted riffs, a blackened grief-ridden atmosphere with a melancholy melodic backdrop.
Wow finally got around to reviewing them. Well I like them. There like my goth band but with the darker vocals. Love the vocals thats probably what really makes them for me.
Great vocals, nice combo. But how is Reggie And The Full Effect a similar artist? Deftones is kind of pushing it too.
I like them.I think I will take your recommendati o n Metal Jon
they remind me of old Tristania, back when Morten Veland was still in the band.

Just this year Draconian released Turning Season Within, which is easily the best gothic doom metal album ever. It is a true masterpiece.
For those that like Draconian check out Saturnus as well!

AMON AMARTH anyone? if you like this, you'll dig them.
