Even among metal aficionados, Dawn remains an obscure band. Overshadowed by the huge mainstays of Black Metal (Mayhem, Burzum, Darkthrone, Dissection, Marduk, Bathory), Dawn's "Slaughtersun" rivals anything put out by those bands. The album has an immense, monolithic atmosphere: opener "The Knell and the World" paints a huge apocalyptic vista with it's mournful melodies and thundering drums. This song represents the entire album well, stretching beyond the 9 minute mark. The long songs create a slight doom influence, with long sections of driving repetition.
Production wise, this is not your "recorded in a frostbitten walnut in the dark forest" kvlt album. Everything is richly textured and clear, thanks to Peter Tagtgren / Abyss, with a particular highlight being Henke Forss' vocals - his shrieking ferocity and burning sorrow rings out clearly in the maelstorm, with no post-production trickery.
If you're a fan of black metal of the melodic variety, you owe it to yourself to listen to Slaughtersun.
