Finland's Throes of Dawn just signed on with Argonauta Records. The band will issue sixth studio release "Our Voices Shall Remain" on August 20th via this new deal. Founded in 1994, Throes Of Dawn has made a long musical journey, from the early years in melodic dark metal to the progressive and atmospheric post-metal of today.
With the highly acclaimed previous album “The Great Fleet of Echoes” (2010), the band combined different musical elements to create lush, progressive soundscapes, reaching further away from their dark metal past.
After a few changes in the line-up, the band wanted to take things further and started to compose music with a new approach.
“We wanted to do things differently.” says Henri Koivula, one of the founding members of the band. “We wanted to follow intuition and see where the music takes us. We built these songs mostly together at the rehearsal place by doing a lot of experimentation and repetition. It was very exciting and rewarding to see how the songs evolved and formed.”
The new album, “Our Voices Shall Remain” consists of seven tracks, with a total running time of 67 minutes. The album is a clear highlight on their musical career, showing the band at it´s best. The songs are flowing, progressive and ethereal with long guitar leads, layered synths and clear production. More...
Finland’s dark metal outfit Throes of Dawn has started work on a sixth, as-yet-untitled album. The band already spent one weekend in D-Studio at Klaukkala recording drums and synths. After a summer break the recordings will continue later this year. The band comments:
"Time to breach the long silence and see what's happening in the TOD land: We are soon entering studio to record the drums and some miscellaneous instruments for the upcoming sixth album.
"The recordings will take place early May in D-Studio at Klaukkala, Finland. We have carefully selected and refined seven songs which might potentially appear on the upcoming album. We have put quite a lot of effort on these songs; a lot of hours spent at the rehearsal place playing and drinking beer and thinking about the compositions and structures.
"I might even dare to say that we have never put so much effort and thought on these things before. I would also like to mention that the band is in a state which you can only achieve with years of dedication and hard work. The spirit and the motivation shown by everybody has made working with this album a really pleasant journey. More...

"Finally, I am pleased to tell you that the recordings of the fifth album have been finished on most parts and the sound engineer will start the mixing process at the very beginning of January.
As you can guess, the recording of this album has not been an easy task. It has required the patience of a dead animal to pull this thing through. But I can guarantee you it has been well worth all the time and trouble. This album is going to be the ultimate Throes Of Dawn album, our magnum opus.
We are well behind the schedules and plans, and I´m not going to give you any release date because it will probably not hold anyway, but the most important thing is that we are actually making progress and all the work will be over very soon."
