Dawn Of Winter have been playing Traditional Doom Metal for nearly 20 years now! What, really''!! Yeah! Talk about being under the radar. Their early material wasn't the easiest to obtain over the years and a lot of their releases were of the Demo fashion with thin production, passed out to diehard fans. Dawn Of Winter have a mountain of music to be heard and even I haven't heard all of it, but I can tell you this is the very best I've heard this band sound! I think their songwriter/guitar player Jorg wrote some of the very best Doom Metal in recent years and when I received a copy of their album from Massacre Records in 2008, I was immediately blown away by the sheer passion executed on this album. Riff after hypnotic riff mixed with stellar vocals (provided by Gerrit from SACRED STEEL) and catchy choruses is what this album is all about. The songwriting is as good as it gets here, the hooks are immeasurable, and I hope everyone is completely blown out of their skulls by this one like I am. If you have heard this band before, this is not the same band you've heard in the past, they're different now and the production on the album is a massive step up to what they've been doing in the past.
