Tuomas Saukkonen Announces New Band

After 14 successful years with seven studio albums, mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen has now decided to put an end to his dark/melancholic melodic death metal band Before The Dawn as well as to all of his other current projects, including Black Sun Aeon, Dawn of Solace, and Routasielu.

“I’ve already been thinking about this for a few years,” Tuomas states. “At some point I realized I was keeping the band alive without feeling right anymore. I lost the passion to make music my own way. Now that Before The Dawn is done, it’s logical for me to clean the table completely and start building something from scratch again.”

As far as his new goals are concerned, the multi-instrumentalist explains: “From now on I’ll solely focus on my new band called Wolfheart – all my attention and energy shall flow into it. My main intention is to create a band that combines Before The Dawn’s energy with the low-tuned, dark, heavy and epic atmosphere of Black Sun Aeon.”

In order to give you a first impression of what Wolfheart will sound like, Tuomas has uploaded a teaser to his official YouTube channel. Check it out below. More...

The Summer Breeze festival organizers have issued the following announcement about confirming Amon Amarth as a headliner for the festival's 2012 edition:

"Behind the 24th door of our Advent Calendar there's none other than our favourite vikings AMON AMARTH, who are now confirmed as the second headliner for the 15th SUMMER BREEZE Open Air beside Subway To Sally.

"It's almost incredible the way our Swedish friends have enjoyed a continued rise to the top of the scene. Top-ten chart entries, headliner slots on all major festivals, sold-out tours, enthusiastic fans everywhere – by now Mr Johan Hegg and Co. have become real stars, but they still have their feet firmly planted on the ground, because they haven't forgotten where they started. And that's why they like to return to those places, one of them definitely being SUMMER BREEZE!

"What, it's Christmas already?!? How time flies. Our SUMMER BREEZE Advent Calendar had only just begun, and now it's all over again. We hope we were able to fulfill your wishes and expectations, and perhaps even surprise you with one or two of the confirmed bands.

"Here's a final overview of our Advent Calendar, which has been making you company for the last 24 days: More...
