Candlelight Records has posted an interview with members of Daylight Dies to their official YouTube page. The interview finds the band answering about their latest album Lost to the Living as interrogated by Metal Maniacs Magazine. Bring your browser to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YnPf3GEbH4.
Mixed at Fascination Street Studios/Sweden by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia), Lost to the Living features nine new songs from this cherished, North Carolina-based doom metal band. Working with Travis Smith (Amon Amarth, Soilwork) for the albumâ€™s packaging, it is already in its initial release weeks coming to be another fan and critic favorite. “We all feel confident this is the strongest album we’ve made,” says drummer Jesse Haff. “The material is a mix of beautiful, melancholic leads and harsh dissonant rhythms; all the despair-driven hooks and dark atmosphere you’ve come to expect from us.”
Formed in 1996, Daylight Dies drummer Haff with guitarist Barre Gambling slowly crafted songs that would make their appearance on the band’s 2002 debut No Reply (Relapse). Their second album, the impressive Dismantling Devotion, was released March 2006 via Candlelight Records. Revolver Magazine called it “as thoughtful and compellingly musical as it is bleak and vengeful… essential.” A US tour with Moonspell and friends Katatonia, the band including vocalist Nathan Ellis, bassist Egan O’Rourke, guitarist Charley Shackelford, together with Gambling and Haff completed 2006 on an all-time high.
Interviews via email or phone are available anytime. More news will be announced shortly.
