DAWN - entire catalogue to be released via Century Media Records in 2014
Century Media Records proudly announce the license of the entire discography by Swedish act DAWN who apart from bands like Dissection, Unanimated or Eucharist belongs to the most legendary, strongest and most underrated acts merging death and black metal during the mid 90's.
Formed back in 1990, DAWN quickly developed from pure death metal on the first early 90's demos into a more complex, melodic, epic and atmospheric style culminating in the fantastic masterpiece "Slaughtersun - Crown Of The Triarchy" (1998).
In the first half of 2014 everything the band has ever recorded will be made available again, carefully remastered by Dan Swanö and accompanied by reworked artworks and more - done in full cooperation with the band.
After their original release the DAWN titles were only available as a compilation on Necropolis Records in 2004 - which is being sold for horrendous prices nowadays - and never before on vinyl (!), thus it is about time these fantastic recordings get officially reissued in proper formats and at reasonable prices.
The planned DAWN releases are:
• Demos 1991 - 1993 (title tba) CD/LP
• "Nær Sólen Gar Niþer For Evogher" (originally released in 1994) CD/LP
• "Sorgh På Svarte Vingar Fløgh" (originally released in 1996) MCD/MLP
• "Slaughtersun - Crown Of The Triarchy" (originally released in 1998) CD/2LP
So, look forward to the definite editions of these immortal classics of Swedish blackened metal of death!
The Slaughtersun shall shine anew and the curse of DAWN continues!
