Final Dawn are a band from Finland that plays a melodic and progressive mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Mina Olen Pimeys".
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some black metal screams a few seconds later while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can also be heard along with some spoken word parts also being utilized briefly.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while the clean playing when it is utilized also gives the songs more of a progressive feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times.
First wave black metal style vocals can also be heard in some parts of the recording along with one track also introducing clean singing onto the album as well as most of the tracks also sounding very different from each other, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style and some of the riffing also shows an influence of traditional metal. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, depressive, satanic, chaos and war themes.
In my opinion Final Dawn are a very great sounding melodic and progressive mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Till The Bitter End" "Satan;s Hourglass" and "Fire Of The North".8 out of 10.
