Damiera - M(US)IC Review
by Mike Rapin
At some point in time, the DNA or RNA of Thursday mixed with The Fall Of Troy but was crossbred with some genes from typical popular-indiecore. Damiera was born in a fragmented world with only one way to express themselves: their first full length album, M(US)IC. Being a fan of semi-heavy music with a high-toned singer I could only fervently grasp my ears (yes, grasp) on this album.
Throughout the pangs and near off-tones of the entire album, I couldn't help getting addicted to the complicated guitar riffs thrown in here and there and the well-placed backing guitars that accompanied those said guitar riffs. With each down-beat of the drums this band seemed to drill themselves further and further into my head making me want more.
My first impression of this album was something in the lines of: "Come-on-bullshit-wait-no-I-kind-of-like-the-fifth-track-but-this-is-lame-no-it's-not- I'm-gonna-write-a-review-now." If you don't get that, I don't blame you... I'm a little insane. My whole thought process brought me to the conclusion that this album isn't half bad. Sure, this isn't for your die-hard metalhead or anything, but I think that anyone who has a sweet-tooth for bands like The Fall Of Troy will find these guys to be intriguing, though not nearly as talented nor addicting.
I'll finish this bizitich up with some closure in the 3rd person: Mike Rapin found this album to be good, but not too good. He'll probably keep it in his library, but not on his iPod. Perhaps some day in the future, he will stumble upon this album and say, "Wow, this is pretty good, why didn't I listen to this non-stop when I got it?" He has done the same thing with bands like Coheed & Cambria and Brand New. He wishes to give a high-five to this band for making a good album and is ending this review on the next period he types
