When it comes to Gothic Metal, most people think of Bands like The Gathering, Theatre of Tragedy, Tristania, Leaves' Eyes etc... Of course it is the genre with a lot of female-fronted outfits, but be honest:
Could it be, that the idea of Gothic-Metal is misunderstood?
But in the case of Draconian you get exactly this: Gothic Metal by the way it is meant to be!
A Death/Doom Hybrid with real "Beauty and the beast" moments.
You can hear the desperation, not only hear, you can feel it!
