Review by Rick Eaglestone
Do you ever seen an album cover and then are immediately drawn to it? Well, this is the case with this German heavy doom debut album “Delirious Rites” by Daevar.
Album opener ‘Slowshine’ laden with hypnotic waves perfectly sets the tone for the record, and already I know this going to score big and when this feeling continues into follow up track ‘Bloody Fingers’ I am already looking at the pre order options! The guitars and bass are punchy with songs inspired by the work of political philosopher Thomas Hobbes and quotations from Iranian psychedelic rock anthems from the 70’s and as Pardis Latifi’s vocals entrance me once more for my highlight track ‘Leila’ I am already looking at the track listing and wanting more, especially with “Draconian Times” era guitar tones.
Fortunately, the album contains two more tracks. The longest of the album ‘Leviathan’ has some wonderful exalting melodies and also feature guest vocals from Jan Oberg (Grin / Earth Ship) and the final one ‘Yellow Queen’, which also has a great accompanying video which is well worth checking out as it fits the albums aesthetic album perfectly.
I have been completely swept off my feet. This album is Deliriously Delectable
