The Greek septet Dakrya employs three vocalists (two female and one male) and implement a carnival-like atmosphere in their Gothic metal mix via eccentric instrumentation as heard on the unit’s nine-track album CRIME SCENE. This odd troupe’s ham-fisted amalgamation of musicals and metal is an exaggerated tour de force that begs to be acted out on stage for maximum impact to be felt, yet a vivid imagination and a predilection for the avant garde works just as well. Adventurous yet at times a bit too much to digest courtesy of the cabaret melodic vocals and storyline-driven lyrical flow, Dakrya’s delivery and direction is a definite acquired taste for those who crave a dramatic flair in their heavy music.
