Darkness Before Dawn Signs To Bombworks Records

Southwestern extreme metallers Darkness Before Dawn is the latest signing to Bombworks Records. Hailing from Glendale, Arizona, Darkness Before Dawn has been a force in the Southwest scene for a number of years now, blending epic death and black metal with a modern edge for a powerful brutal sound that is both melodic and heavy. The band self-released a 5-song self-titled EP in 2007 that featured more of an epic metalcore sound that borrowed many elements from death metal and symphonic black metal. The band continued to refine their sound and later recorded a 3-song demo in 2008 that boldly supplanted itself in the realm of extreme metal, taking cues from symphonic black metal, death metal and prog while retaining a modern edge, incorporating death growls and black shrieks, blazing guitar leads, bombastic drumming and bass work, and keyboards to provide atmosphere throughout.

The band will be heading into legendary Lambesis Studios for the month of April to record their debut full length, tentatively titled "King's to You," which will feature 11 brand new tracks. The CD will drop in June and will be available from the band for their tour up to Cornerstone, which includes an opening night slot on Bombworks Records' sponsored Day of Metal stage. Check out the band, as well as 4 songs (the 3 from the 2008 demo and 1 from the self-titled EP), at their MySpace page.
