Review Type: 

Taking their name from a rock in Sri Lanka, Sigiriya  (ex-Acrimony) are based in a Welsh valley and those who already are familiar with Sigiriya’s debut album will be very pleased with Darkness died Today as well. It's plain from the first listen that this material would work wonders in a live setting, but however Sigiriya doesn't have a single ounce of originality to offer.

If you are a fan, I would definitely recommend this album to you, seeing as the band have managed to keep up with their previous efforts. But for those of you that are looking for progression and innovation, you definitely need to find another rock somewhere else. Sigiriya specialize in the hybrid of fuzzy stoner metal and doom and provide just enough to be adequate purveyors of the genre, but not enough to ever stand out with an unique identity.
