GODSPEED|seven While I think 'Under A Godless Veil' is a "better" album, Sovran gets me at a more emotinal level. Somehow, this album is able to trigger an emotional response through it's sound, theme & vocals that very few albums can.

Draconian is a very unique band and I seriously appreciate their music that is able to really get me at the core.

Pale Tortured Blue; my favorite song. Period. Favorite track: Rivers Between Us.

J. Wukotich I so love the sound of this band. I love the atmosphere they create. It's dark and terrifying at the same time as being hopeful and romantic. Just wonderful. Favorite track: Stellar Tombs.

Askion Brilliant melancholic gothic doom metal. As heavy and purging as the crippling downward spiral of life, as clear and reflective as the moonlit waters at the threshold of death, and as soaring as the heart that is forever yearning for that glimpse of hope. Melodic, dark, and beautiful. Favorite track: Pale Tortured Blue.

AASKE I love Saturnus unfortunately they are Doomed (split) since so many years now ... I thought finding a new Doom band with a Gothic touch would be a good idea. I found Draconian and I like it so far. Favorite track: Stellar Tombs.

Founded in 1994 in the Swedish Säffle, Draconian gradually refined their sound of melodic Death Metal with elements of Black Metal, becoming more ponderous and doomy over time. Their style-defining 2003 debut LP 'Where Lovers Mourn' served a welcome alternative for fans of such classic doom artists like My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost. Contrary to many of their peers however, Draconian's sound has remained steadfast to its origins, in particular, the powerful vocal growls of Anders Jakobsson, one of the band's defining and most unique features, along with newcomer female vocalist Heike Langhans sensitively interwoven melodies. Draconian's sixth studio album Sovran is no exception to this formula, and immediately convinces the listener with Beauty and the Beast-esque vocal contrasts, striking accents, and threatening moods. Sovran also features a guest appearance from Daniel Änghede (Crippled Black Phoenix) on the haunting track “Rivers Between Us”.
