Century Media Records has signed a worldwide deal to license the entire discography of Sweden's Dawn. The label comments:
"Formed in 1990, Dawn quickly evolved from the pure death metal found on their first demos into a more complex, melodic, epic and atmospheric style that culminated in the masterpiece, 'Slaughtersun - Crown Of The Triarchy' (1998).
"Along with Dissection, Unanimated, and Eucharist, Dawn is considered to be one of the most underrated acts that merged death and black metal during the mid 90's.
"In the first half of 2014, the band's catalog will finally be made available again on CD and--for the first time ever--on vinyl. Carefully re-mastered by Dan Swanö, these re-issues feature re-worked artwork and more (all done in full cooperation with the band).
"The planned Dawn releases are:
- Demos 1991-1993 (title TBA) on CD/LP
- Nær Sólen Gar Niþer For Evogher (originally released in 1994) on CD/LP
- Sorgh På Svarte Vingar Fløgh (originally released in 1996) on MCD/MLP
- Slaughtersun - Crown Of The Triarchy (originally released in 1998) on CD/2LP
