Kings To You [edit]
by Darkness Before Dawn | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: June 01, 2009

Modern edged black / death anthems melt your face off on the debut from Darkness Before Dawn. Hailing from Glendale, Arizona, Darkness Before Dawn is no stranger to the extreme underground, being a consistent force in the Southwest US for several years. The band released a 5-song EP in 2007 that had an epic metalcore sound, borrowing heavily from death and symphonic black metal. They followed that up with a 3-song demo that firmly rooted the band in the throes of modern death / black, and it was this demo that led to the signing with Bombworks Records. Darkness Before Dawn’s debut full length takes 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. The result is a powerful wall of sound complete with pounding aggression and killer melodies and hooks that the listener will remember long after the song is over. The live show is a treat as well, as the band exudes infectious musical energy, and frontman Logan is a beast who can work a crowd like few frontmen can. “King’s To You” was recorded in the legendary Lambesis Studios in southern California, guaranteeing an aural experience that will totally annihilate the listerner’s auditory functions. Fans of Dethklok, Behemoth, Abigail Williams, In Flames, and The Black Dahlia Murder will all find something to love here, as well as any self respecting fan of melodic death metal, black metal, or extreme metal in general. Prepare to meet your maker and face checkmate as you experience the crushing force that is Darkness Before Dawn!

Good Death/Black Metal | Posted October 15, 2009
Very good Death/Metal from Darkness Before Dawn.
Best tracks are Kings To You, Die To Yourself, and
Material Existence. They all blend influences from metalcore, black, death, and symphonic Death/Black flawlessly. Really good album. One of the better Bombworks Records Releases this year. 4-Stars. Perfect for inducing throngs of the meanest lookin metal kids to go nuts and mosh their heads in.
