After a long wait, Daarchlea has finally released their first studio album "Suns" which was released on August 27, 2014 independently. Yeah. Getting real tired of all the Malaysian metal bands today keep releasing the single albums instead of EP or full length album. I must say, this band is considered as "The Best of Malaysian Extreme Metal of All Time" after Sil Khannaz (if i'm not mistake). Although, many Malaysian metalheads are praising the album to be "the best album"

"Birth, the Beginning" is about every soul is promise to God that they are about to be born as a human baby who will walk upon the Earth. Well, it's a great introduction to "The Book of Heresy" which is very catchy modern death metal sound that I would like to hear, nothing wrong with it. "Qhilav" started with a gloomy introduction something like that. This version is even better and even more intense that the previous version. The clean vocal adds a lot of variation for this song.

Putra's guttural are just way more brutal than the previous one which was using the high scream vocal like-Dani Filth style so much. "Phase I: Tree" and "Phase II: Human" I can feel the atmosphere of Norwegian black metal element in there. Imagine when you hear this is like you're in a cold forest and there is some dark ritual going on and then suddenly, things getting violent and the evil entity has unleashed across the world to corrupt every living things on this Earth.

"Odyssey: Towards the Sun" uses an oriental element such as sitar and gamelan-like instruments that makes the song darkly beautiful. Kinda reminds me of Opeth's "Burden" and "The Throat of Winter" blend it together. But "Ascend to Arasy" uses a Malay traditional sound that sounded lifted from Aishah's "Bahtera Merdeka", with kompang in it.

I don't know which song is favorite, but I think this whole album is my favorite. They done amazing job for making this dark, beautiful and unique album.

동남아에 메탈강국이 모여있다는건 알았는데 실력이 이렇게나 좋을줄은 몰랐다. 단점은 러닝타임뿐

인트로의 나레이션부터 시작해서 불경하면서도 달리는 분위기가 좋다.
