Bombworks Records reports:
Southwestern extreme metallers DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN is the latest signing to Bombworks Records.
Hailing from Glendale, Arizona, Darkness Before Dawn has been a
force in the Southwest scene for a number of years now, blending epic
death and black metal with a modern edge for a powerful brutal sound
that is both melodic and heavy. The band self-released a 5-song
self-titled EP in 2007 that featured more of an epic metalcore sound
that borrowed many elements from death metal and symphonic black metal.
The band continued to refine their sound and later recorded a
3-song demo in 2008 that boldly supplanted itself in the realm of
extreme metal, taking cues from symphonic black metal, death metal and
prog while retaining a modern edge, incorporating death growls and
black shrieks, blazing guitar leads, bombastic drumming and bass work,
and keyboards to provide atmosphere throughout.
Darkness Before Dawn is a 6-piece, with Logan on vocals, Gabe and
Trey on guitars, DJ on bass, TJ on keys, and Matt on drums, resulting
in a sound that is very full and providing the ability to reproduce the
recorded sound live. Influences include bands such as DETHKLOK,
BEHEMOTH, DIMMU BORGIR, IN FLAMES and THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER.
The band will be heading into legendary Lambesis Studios for the
month of April to record their debut full length, tentatively titled
King's To You, which will feature 11 brand new tracks. The CD will drop
in June and will be available from the band for their tour up to
Cornerstone, which includes an opening night slot on Bombworks Records'
sponsored Day of Metal stage.
