|CD REVIEW Before The Dawn|
Band: Before The Dawn
Before the Dawn is a melodic death metal band from Finland that started out in 1999 by Tuomas Saukkonen as his solo project. So the first line-up was gathered so that the band could perform live. With many changes in the lineup the guys entered the studio to record some material. This got a lot of positive feedback so the they started writing more and more. Over the years the band has released 1 demo, 6 albums (this is their number 7), 1 DVD and 3 EP's.
And it shows, upon hearing this album you can not only hear that the band putted a lot of time and hard work in it, but you can feel it swell. Although i never heard of this band let alone their material, their work is so great and feels natural to the ear for people who love this melodic death metal genre. The only downside is that the record only counts 9 songs.
