𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: A mixture of crisp/shape - clean rhythm & melodic passages, heavy crushing riffs/slow & heavy reverberate/monolithic doom riffs (fret-board solos), with substantial moody pickings of the bass, added keyboard sections

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Clean [epic] operatic/chanting vocals, with moments of harshness/aggressive growls and Italian singing threw into the mix

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Clean tempo drum patterns – with an epic dirge monolithic & heavy crushing moments

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Delved yourself into a traditional heavy metal/epic doom metal of sword & sorcery and the realms of pulp horror of eight tracks of outstanding craftmanship & musicianship.


The opening track, The House On The Lake, it’s musical storytelling at its finest: an almost 11-minutes epic tale of darkness and heroism, when first hearing opening riff, it will open your eyes & ears like a fantasia spellbook with its compelling sound, vocals, catchy riffs and lyrics, while the remaining seven tracks are magical & remarkable and epic as the opening track, breathtakingly guitar riffs/solos, the magic of the keyboard for that extra scale of epicist., various compositions of vocal technique outthought the album.


If you like your bands with crushing monster riffs and the grand scale of doom metal, that fusses both Candlemass, Sabbath, Pagan Altar etc., with a unique sound of their own, epic concept lyrical themes, Crimson Dawn is for you, I’ve fallen in love with this band, and a delight to discover a magical band


Crimson Dawn will enchant you, with their mystical/magic music


Each of the songs, as a different sound & mood – making this a compelling masterpiece


*full of energy & magical*

*Intriguing & enchanting*

*entertaining/timeless* * a true epicist masterpiece*

Fantasia and enchanting

doom metal
