    Promos went out a week ago, so now we're starting to see a few reviews trickle in. Besides the previous Stereokiller review, we just received this one from Terrorizer. 8/10.

    DAYLIGHT DIES
    ‘Dismantling Devotion’
    CANDLELIGHT
    According to the North Carolina tourist board, the southern state is “home to many unique and special areas of outdoor splendour where nature comes alive to rejuvenate and replenish our spirit.” Perhaps someone should tell Daylight Dies, ‘cos by the sound of this sophomore full length, the NC based quintet spend their time locked in dark basements committed to a strict diet of gloom. Not that the end result is one you’d want to change, mind you. Though profoundly miserable of spirit and slower burning than a badly rolled smoke, ‘Dismantling Devotion’ is an accomplished and thoroughly evocative work of soaring, timeless metal; each devastatingly downbeat moment loaded with more emotion than a hundred of today’s so-called ‘emo’ bands could ever hope to muster. In a similar ballpark to doom greats Opeth and My Dying Bride, Daylight Dies succeed in being heavy on a vast scale, but without ever hitting the proverbial killswitch; preferring an avenue of attack that gradually immerses the listener into cold, but full bodied depths, thus allowing the albums mood of despair and monumental weight to creep and settle into the conscience – as opposed to assaulting the cerebrum with brutality point blank. ‘Dismantling Devotion’ overspills with intelligent intensity, an epic journey as thoughtful and compellingly musical as it is bleak and vengeful. Essential.

    Good score! It might be a crap mag, still a lot of people read it, so good exposure!

    Not bad. I've no idea why those other guys dislike Terrorizer personally.

    Firstly, guys, stop discussing the magazine, or like the other thread this is gonna end up off topic!

    Secondly, great review in a very well known mag. This can only bring good things.

    hopefully there should be a UM review from me next week or maybe a bit after, depending on how the post is!

    We'll also be having a interview/feature in Zero Tolerance (March issue I believe) -- as well as an interview in Terrorizer and most likely reviews in Kerrang and Metal Hammer as well. I believe "A Dream Resigned" from Dismantling Devotion will also be featured on the sampler CDs which come with some of these mags as well, so definitely look out for that.

    This is just the beginning of what we're starting to hear back.. I'm just sort of posting them as things come in.
