Dakrya – Crime Scene: Impression

November 22, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

On October 12 this year, Dakrya released their newest album via Sensory entitled Crime Scene. Not far into this album, I drew several connections to the band’s music and that of Diablo Swing Orchestra. This is certainly less extreme on the theatrical side, but still has a unique, flamboyant ring to it. Its progressive, avant-garde characteristics and experimental ideas can easily push many listeners away. On the other hand, it can be a treat for open-minded appreciation.

Whether it be due to the metal female vocals or the circus-like themes, Crime Scene is definitely a unique album. Nothing overly revolutionary is done here, but it has a fresh feel. The instrumentals are all well-done, from the saxophone to the percussion to the vocals. None are emotionally stunning or virtuoso-esque ground-breakers, but still highly enjoyable. The songwriting is rich with uniqueness and diversity, able to give numerous listens without growing stale. The only issue with the album is that there is nothing to be utterly blown away by. That being said, Dakrya has produced not only something great, but something different. To fans of Diablo Swing Orchestra, do not miss this one.

My Impression (rating: B+)
