studio album from German Heavy Metal band Dark
at Dawn and a quite good one in my humble opinion. End of
review! Just kidding :)
is my first encounter with them but hopefully not my last. First
time I threw this self-titled new album in my CD-player I wasn’t
impressed at all… only the fantastic track “The Alliance” did
leave a great mark in my brain, but the rest of the CD was a tad
boring at first.
several spins later I feel different about it… now I like it a lot.
We get 11 tracks, 11 Solid tracks, well played and well produced.
When I listen to this CD bands like Grave Digger and Running Wild
comes to mind. Especially Grave Digger is in my thoughts because the
vocalist Thorsten Kohlrausch’s vocals is very close to the singer
from Grave Digger… but the music is too. However Dark at Dawn is more melancholic at times. A few of the songs are not above average
but most of them are enjoyable.
favourite tracks are “The Alliance”, the up-tempo hammer
“Crossbreed” and “Fearless” with its catchy and driving
if you’d like to go for Heavy, but still Melodic Heavy Metal then
I can definitely recommend this album for you.
