  • Description

    Hailing from the cold snowscapes of northern Finland, DAWN OF RELIC use afascination with the works of HP Lovecraft to paint their bleak,foreboding soundscapes. Alternating between calm acousticpassages and frenetic blast sections, the band prefer to retainan air of mystery and anonymity about them which serves theirunusual style of dark metal well.Formed by Jukka “Zann Path” Juntunen in 1993, originally asa solo project that relied heavily on synth-based sound, hesoon released the demo “Dawn of Relic”. The project graduallyexpanded into a four piece that included Pekka Mustonen onGuitar and bass, Rauli Roininen on Guitar, Jarno Juntunenon Vocals and Jukka “Zann Path” Juntunen on Drums andKeyboards. The demo “Of the Ambience” was recorded in1997 with new member Pekka Malo taking over the keyboards.Wicked World/Earache signed them shortly after and the bandrecorded “One Night in Carcosa” at Astia studios (CHILDRENOF BODOM, GANDALF) in the summer of 1998.In 2001, Teemu Luukinen joined the horde on guitar and new tracks are composed and take form as twoseparate demos. The first being “Wrathcaste” (aka “Lovecraftian Dark”) which is released to label and pressV.I.P.s, and the second, “Rose Haven”, which travels a more experimental path, goes unreleased.In 2002 the band wins “Metallian Magazine’s Best Unsigned Band Contest”, and a record deal with Seasonof Mist soon follows. In 2003, the label unleashes “Lovecraftian Dark” upon the Earth which was recorded atTico-Tico studios. As a bonus the fourth chapter of the record is the never released demo “Rose Haven”!The following year the band starts composing new songs for their third album “Night on Earth”. Sadly, after10 years with the band, Pekka Mustonen leaves in order to concentrate on his studies. “Night on Earth”is released upon the world through Season of Mist on August 29th and several live dates are promised tofollow.
