It’s been 15 long years since Finland’s TRUE BLACK DAWN released an album. Back then, the band were monikered simply BLACK DAWN before a no-name American band threatened legal action and forced a change to TRUE BLACK DAWN. During the ’90s, the band had made its name in the black metal underground with a handful of demos, most significantly 1993’s War Against Christians. But come time for their debut album, 2001’s Blood For Satan became an immediate classic in that underground with its cryogenic distillation of filth and fury, a horrific and histrionic beast of dead-cold dread. Very much “just” a black metal record but by no means hindered by this stark and simple fact, Blood For Satan helped kickstart Finland’s dominance of the black metal scene during the new millennium.
The band have now awoken from their infernal slumber and spew forth Come The Colorless Dawn!
