The Dawn is a hardcore band from Marseille, France and I am happy I was able to listen and review their record for this zine.
The album contains 9 songs of chaotic mayhem. The Dawn play aggressive, nervous, noisy hardcore that borders with sludge and doom influences and screaming harsh vocals. But, there are also grindcore blastbeat parts in the song structures and to add it all, weird keyboard melodies in the background, to make this band more interesting. What makes me more happy, is obvious Church of Satan influence in many songs, especially Walpurgisnacht with Nine Satanic Statements thrown in. The lyrics are as I understood nihilistic and apocalyptic as the music this band plays. This is not for the fans of happy merry go round melodic hardcore. These guys will twist your mind with their music and then laugh about it later! I really love this record, it shows the variety and originality that can still be achieved on hardcore scene besides all those generic clone bands that are coming out with their records every day!
