History & Biography
Dawn arose in 1991 by guitarists Fullmstad and Soderberg who had just left their respective bands. A couple of musicians from bands like Mesentary and Funeral Feast were recruited and the band recorded Demo I in 1992. Another tape, this time called Apparition, followed the year after. Apparition also became a 7"EP on Bellphegot Records. Promo '93 got the band a deal with Necropolis. The band's sound is ferocious and melodic and comparable to Dissection. Naer Solen Gar Niber For Evogher (Unisound Studio) translates into When The Sun Sets Forever. An EP called Sorgh Pa Svarte Vingar Fløgh (Sorrow Flew On Black Wings) appeared in 1996. Drummer Karsten left Dawn in 1997 and upon replacement the band was in the Abyss Studio for its second album.
Dawn signed to No Fashion Records in early 2003.
Dawn often writes lyrics in old Swedish and has shot a video for The Knell And The World. The Wounded Meadow is merely a goth band.


Dawn's new album will present little that will surprise the band's fan base. They do what they do best and attack the senses with enough speed and dynamics, yet simultaneously maintain enough sense of melody to keep things within perspective. The vocals and the instruments are suitably vicious and the sound, courtesy of Abyss Studio, is equally good. The band has very long instrumental interludes for a quintet, yet that might be a function of the band's longer than average songs. Music aside, one wishes the label had not included the band's mug shots as part of the package. First there is the guy with the modern guitar clad in an 18th century blouse. Then there is a cape-wearing apparition and a member with wimpy short hair wearing bullet belts and so on. It just does not work. In spite of this, Dawn's music is absolutely credible and fans of Dissection or the No Fashion roster should get their paws on this. - Ali "The Metallian"
