Swedish Black/Death Metal at its finest!

The album that cemented Dawn's legacy as one of the elite and most influential melodic black/death metal band that came out somewhere mid-late 90's. Similar to their debut, Dawn has maintained their trademark melodic tunes which has captured legion of fans from across the world but undoubtedly, with a much heavier punch. Everything here seems to be more aggressive and their brillant musicianship has propelled into a much higher level. Each song prides itself w/ killer Dawn riffs that only Dawn could create. . The lyrics are well structured and composed with some deep meanings that could stimulate your inner wrath and it goes perfectly well with Henke's vokill performance. More importantly,, the drum beats are patterned violently but just enough to be in harmony with the bass tunes. Futhermore, The overall sound production is clean which is perfect for this genre. To sum up, this album is a must have and a critical release that fans of Dissection, Sacramentum, Lord Belial and so on should have!

Monolithic Black Metal Mastery

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.
