If something looks, swims and quacks like a duck, then it sure as hell has a lot of duck-like qualities, regardless of whether it actually is said bird or not. In similar vein, when you get most of Acrimony in a band – Stu O’Hara, Paul Bidmead and Darren Ivey – it’s probably going to sound pretty good. You feel safe expecting something a bit heavy, a bit groovy. There’s a lot to live up to with Acrimony’s legacy, even with a new name, even with an album already released under that name.
Sigiriya’s Darkness Died Today lives up to these expectations.
