Before The Dawn are destined to further establish their position in the metal scene with their brand-new EP, “Archaic Flame”. Scheduled for release on March 8, 2024 via Napalm Records, the new offering unveils a fiery blend of sonic intensity and melodic prowess never before heard from Before The Dawn. After a decade of silence, the Finnish metal juggernauts shattered expectations with their comeback album, “Stormbringers”, the subsequent reconquering of Europe’s stages, and successfully dominating the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise last month. Before The Dawn on “Archaic Flame”:

“Already before the massive 34-gig Fin/Euro tour, we started to have new ideas piling up. Once we got back home, we did not want to wait until we could start working on the next album and decided to record an EP to keep the band in motion after the most successful year in its history. ‘Archaic Flame’ is the title track of the EP and is a musical embodiment of the spark inside the band that grew into a firestorm.”

Chaoszine sat down with the band’s mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen on February 20th at our own studio in Helsinki, Finland and discussed about the upcoming “Archaic Flame” EP as well as what lies ahead for Saukkonen’s other band Wolfheart. You can check out the entire video interview below:
