" 2nd and last full length from Dawn...(They have reformed... supposedly)"

" Sweden’s Dawn were formed Autumn/Winter Anno 1991. They recorded their first demo, Demo 1, in the Winter of 1992. That cold December spawned the first official Dawn demo entitled Apparition. At this point, Dawn had more of a straightforward Death Metal approach to their music, which is reflected in this first release. The Apparition Demo went on to sell over 200 copies and was re-released as a 7" EP, The Eternal Forest by the small label, Bellphegot Records. During the summer of 1993, Dawn entered Unisound Studios (Dan Swano) to record a promotional tape. The result, Promo ‘93, found its way to the Necropolis Records Hordes where the label signed Dawn immediately "

" Blastbeats, tremolo riffs, requisite apocalyptic lyrical themes. All of these elements drive the black/death genre, and in the right hands yield good results. Dawn is a first tier band in the genre, marrying blasting tempos with positively sinister tremolo melodies with the intention of pulverizing the listener and drawing them into a world of misanthropy and depression "

" The production is a wall of ambience and white noise, remarkable for its mixture of clarity and power. Unlike many other bands in the death/black genre (e.g. Dissection and Necrophobic) Dawn thrives on repetition. Each riff is repeated over and over, creating a trance-like listening experience. Songs are fairly long and usually built around three or four riffs. Surprisingly...This works and makes the tracks quite hypnotic in nature "

Simply Put....A Tremendous Effort !......A must for fans of the Black/Death Genre...
