Before The Dawn/Dawn Of Solace/Black Sun Aeon/The Final Harvest/RoutaSielu

Post by Kenwood on Mon Feb 27, 2012 5:01 am

Since James asked me about Before The Dawn earlier today, I figured I'd copy a bunch of posts I've made on another forum about this band and the band leader's other bands. Because they all kick ass! So here goes...

So I'm a huge fan of Tuomas Saukkonen, the man behind Before The Dawn. I've been a fan of that band since finding their My Darkness album in a cheapo bin about five or six years ago. Over the course of five albums, I've yet to be disappointed. Just an awesome band, sort of stuck between death metal and the so-called goth-metal style (Entwine, Charon, etc.). Tuomas Saukkonen is the main songwriter, and he has since done a companion project called Dawn Of Solace which is sort of a mellower side to Before The Dawn.

Recently, though, he's created two new projects. One is Black Sun Aeon, a more traditional doom-death band where he shares vocal duties. And then there's The Final Harvest—straight up death metal. Well, it's groovy, so maybe "straight up" isn't the right term. But death metal it is, either way.

And it's brilliant. Very heavy, groovy, thrashy. Again, Tuomas wrote nearly everything, but here he only plays drums. Some of you may dig it.



And a video each from Black Sun Aeon, Before The Dawn, and Dawn Of Solace.

Can this thread title get any longer? Tuomas has a new band called RoutaSielu. All of these projects he does are similar in style, that gothic doom-death thing, you know. Some are heavier, faster, slower, doomier, but they all kind of circle the same core style. RoutaSielu is no different, only this time it's sung entirely in Finnish.

Kicks ass, too!

Looks like this new album really will be much heavier:

New video from the upcoming album.



Much more "death metal" than before. I'm going to miss the clean vocals, I think. Great song, though.
