W:O:A Metal Battle Norsk winner NO DAWN

No Dawn hails from Steinkjer, in the middle parts of Norway.
Formed back in 2002, as a thrash metal project. The band started out playing coversongs of
bands like In Flames and At the Gates. As time went by, self-written
material came to life, and a somewhat unique sound emerged. Many changes in
line-up has been made, a total of 5 members have been replaced. The biggest
change occured in september 2006, as founding member Steinar Forfang left
the band. Also, Tor Egil Solberg left in february 2007, without a successor
appointed, and the band continued as a four-piece deathmetal band pursuing a
much different sound. In november 2007 Paal Andrè Sandnesmo rejoined the
band, filling the position Tor Egil left.

No Dawn recorded the first demo in fall 2004, and the second one called
"Nessecity" during 2005/2006. The band sounds quite different today opposed
to the beginning, going from extreme thrash to being a more brutal and
technical death metal act. The band has more and more frequently entered the
stage and has recently won the Norwegian leg of Wacken Metal Battle and will
play the prestigous Wacken Metal Battle at the 2010 edition of Wacken Open
Air. Also a new EP is underway, so lots is going on in the No Dawn camp these days!
