The second full-length album by cult Greek Symphonic Gothic Metal band.
Under the title "Today Died Yesterday" Swan Christy's new album was released in early May.
If there's something that should be made clear about this Athenian band, is that unlike many others of the scene, theirs is a characteristic sound which in no case repeats the standard cliche's; there certainly are influences, such as the piano-based musical forms by Iraklis (piano, synths) that take a bit after Savatage, as well as a few Progressive guitar solos that might as well remind you of Dream Theater. But Swan Christy has their own personal sound - something fundamental for a band nowadays - a sound that could be described as "Symphonic Metal"...
The music of "Today Died Yesterday" is supreme, like in the previous album. With orchestral parts performed by synths, instruments like violin and oboe, additional female vocals and the dominating piano, alternating with heavy, at times harsh guitar riffs and an exceptional bass-playing Swan Christy prove that they are particularly skillful musicians.
The album was among the top Greek releases of the year. Swan Christy has something new to give to the European scene, something out of the ordinary!
