Finnish melancholic melodic death metal outfit BEFORE THE DAWN has once again risen from its ashes. June 25, 2011, the concert at Nummirock festival, marked the end of the old line-up; after one month of re-grouping the band returned, playing at Tuska Open Air afterparty July 24, 2011. No rest for the wicked – right afterwards BEFORE THE DAWN hit the studio and in winter 2011 also European stages on their “Rebirth Tour 2011″, together with INSOMNIUM and MYGRAIN.

This year, April 27, 2012 saw the “Rise of the Phoenix”. An appropriate title of the seventh studio album, the second release via Nuclear Blast RecordsBEFORE THE DAWN returns after living through a phase of changes and uncertainty – cleansed, renewed and stronger than ever! Leaving the pieces of both the musical and personal past behind, mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen, lead guitarist Juho Räihä and their new companions Pyry Hanski (Bass) and Joonas Kauppinen (Drums) get ready for conquering your ears with the finest blend of northern gloom and harsh melodic death metal, combining the heaviness of melodic death metal, the gloom of dark metal and the frostbitten cold of finnish winters with beautiful melodies and epic hymnody like no other band out there.
