History & Biography
Crimson Dawn was born as a collaboration between Dario Beretta and Emanuele Rastelli (Crown of Autumn and Magnifiqat) in the winter of 2005. Drakkar was on forced hiatus due to low sales at this time.

Crimson Dawn signed a deal with My Graveyard Productions in 2013 to release the album In Strange Aeons. The band, led by Dario Beretta (Drakkar) and Antonio Pecere (Rapid Fire and Betoken), played doom metal inspired by bands such as Candlemass and Black Sabbath. The album was recorded at Elnor Studio by Mat Stancoiu (Drakkar, Labyrinth, etc.) and mastered at Unisound Studio by Dan Swanö. It was scheduled for release in September, 2013. A Dawn In Crimson was the name of the band’s 2006 demo. The band was heard on the 2009 compilation Force Of Glory - Melodic Metal Compilation Vol. 1 with two of the three demo songs.
