Rebranded and refreshed, New Jersey’s BLACKEST DAWN rolls in with a signature style of metallic hardcore that put NJHC on the map. Digging in further to the fabric that makes up BLACKEST DAWN, it will be quickly apparent where this quintet sowed their roots. Formed by former members of Shattered Realm and Years Spent Cold, BLACKEST DAWN is an amalgamation of both bands with a harder and more refined sound.
Without a having a single show under their belt, UPSTATE RECORDS was quick to pick up BLACKEST DAWN to release their Twisted Place EP. Wasting no time, BLACKEST DAWN will drop their debut single on July 7th, just in time for their first show with BLEED, THREAT TO SOCIETY, REACHING OUT and more.
For fans of Shattered Realm, All Out War, Merauder and fellow NJ’s finest, Fury of FIve, BLACKEST DAWN will quickly rise to the forefront of growing metallic hardcore scene.
