DAWN OF TEARS is a melodic almost symphonic death metal band from Spain and have released 2 demo CD’s and one full length album, “Descent” (2007).
Now they are back with a 5 track EP called ‘Dark Chamber Litanies’ and must tip my hat to what they have to offer with this release. Sound and style wise they are a mix of several bands
such as; Children of Bodom, Cradle of Filth, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity and a few others, but they have managed to stay true to themselves and they have their own way of doing it.
Every song has something to offer and they have recorded 5 catchy tunes with perfectly fitting vocals and complemented by piano and orchestral passages that provide the tracks with splashes of colour. Every song has splendid guitar runs and melodies that I just can get out of my head. How come I have never heard of this band before?
Every time this CD/EP is done I press play again and I can’t wait for their next release. they plan to record their second full length album in autumn 2009.
My only complaint is the drumming that is a bit repetitive at times and the production that could
have been a bit better. However I still enjoy every single note of this EP.
I tip my hat to the band.
