About
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. Andreas Bruheim filled Steinars position, and is today the main songwriter.
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.

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 won the Norwegian leg of Wacken Metal Battle to represent Norway in the finals at W:O:A 2010.

As part of this they also got to play at the Inferno Festival in 2011, in front of a packed John Dee (Oslo, NO). In 2012 the signed a deal with WormHoleDeath. They travelled to Italy in february 2013 to record the debut album 'Dark Aura'.
A dark, heavy, fast, and at times symphonic, death metal album that is out through WormHoleDeath / Aural music on february 25th 2014.
