Frozen Dawn are a band from Spain that plays a melodic form of black/death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Those of the Cursed Light" which was released by Xtreem Music.
The album starts out with the sounds of wind along with acoustic guitars before going into a fast and melodic black metal direction as well as adding in blast beats and then the grim vocals start to kick in and the band also brings in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts and the guitars and vocals are also by death metal.
When we get more into the album solos and leads are added into the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the band go back to the 90's Swedish melodic black metal sound while also having a more modern feeling to it and at times you can hear elements of thrash metal in the recording, as the album progresses clean sections are added into certain sections of the recording.
With this album Frozen Dawn go back to the 90's melodic Swedish black metal sound while also being heavily influenced by death metal and newer Satyricon to create their own sound as well as updating the genre a bit.
Song lyrics cover darkness and winter themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Frozen Dawn are a very great sounding melodic black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blackened March" "Nocturnal Sacrifice" "The Triumph Of God Frost" and "Eternal Frost". 8 out of 10.
