Finnish dark metallers BEFORE THE DAWN have posted the third video trailer for their upcoming album Deathstar Rising! Check it out:
Deathstar Rising combines the heaviness of melodic death metal, the gloom of dark metal, the frostbitten cold of the Finnish winters and epic harmonies like no other. With this their sixth album, they pick up right where their highly successful 2007 effort Deadlight left off, delivering emotive melodies with a devastating intensity. Deathstar Rising will be unleashed on February 25 (Europe) and May 3 (North America) via Nuclear Blast!
BEFORE THE DAWN have previously hit both single and album charts in the bands home country of Finland and played shows in more than 16 countries supporting bands like KATATONIA, MOONSPELL, SWALLOW THE SUN, SCAR SYMMETRY and AMORPHIS.
Masters of Metal is another addition to the map of the Finnish metal festivals. Originally the event was planned to be carried out in a bigger venue. However, because of the unexpected low ticket sales the whole MOM event was switched to a smaller venue and a couple of bands got dropped from the bill. However the line-up looked pretty solid which should have drawn more people to the event. After all approximately 300 people crawled out to the MOM event. Although the line-up looked all in all solid, but as for the general arrangements of the event, the roadie and break time between each bands was occasionally quite insanely long. That definitely bugged some people off even though the beer was cold and metal ruled. But even though the festival is a small indoor one, if the people of the fest believes in the future of the fest, then we can expect to have another MOM event in the next year.
