Dawn of Dreams - _Darklight Awakening_
(WWIII, 2001)
by: Aaron McKay (8.5 out of 10)
For whatever reason, Germany has been hiding this five piece outfit and not sharing very well with the rest of the steadfast metal community. After kicking around the scene for some time, Dawn of Dreams erupts with this debut in WWIII and I am thrilled beyond words! Slicing up their feet from walking the black/death razor's edge, Dawn of Dreams, if losing their balance and falling off, would surely land death metal side up. They have considerably more to offer than a bland formula for fire licked rhythms and piercingly militant drive. Pulling apart the scene, DoD delivers a amplification of measured bursts of musical intensity that needs to be felt more than described. Pay close attention to "Watch the Sunrise", "The Sirenes Dreaming" and "Dwell in My Embrace" for DoD's raw, nearly reckless surrender to their passion for music. I can't wait to hear a sophomore endeavor from these guys. With their gilded black death style, Dawn of Dreams is the real thing.
