The band DARK AT DAWN was already founded in 1993 and did have recorded a Demo-Tape in the first two years of their existence. Above all because of their fantastic mini-CD "Oceans of Time" from 1996, from which one could sell 1200 samples in individual distribution, this formation should be a notion for some of you. They got well-earned euphoric resonance from the press and could even attract attention with larger performances like the Wacken Open Air, as support of Saxon and even of the dreadful Nina Hagen. Furthermore they reached as one of less unsigned bands an interview in Rock Hard, won at the Evil Message Festival and got airplay on numerous radiostation.
In the last years they had to tackle a bit more slowly because of band intern and business technical problems. But they announce back respectfully with "Baneful Skies" and prove that their successes from the past were not for nothing. The band was, even before the publishing of their first complete album, an absolute hot-tip for diverse press-substitutes and is a hot candidate for "Newcomer of the Year". One reason for that is the individual original way to play dark Power Metal, which is on one hand large-scaled arranged, but on the other hand it consists of an absolute hymn-character and because of that it will delight any heart of Bangers!
"Baneful Skies" supplies an essential base for future: there are still more spaces that can be conquered.
