Introducing Tracedawn: The Next Generation Of Metal


Last year Tracedawn gave the metal fans and media all over Europe a stormy warning of what the next generation of metalheads is made of. After the furious self-titled debut the boys are back in town to kick the melodic death metal scene into new era with louder, harder and faster full-length album entitled “Ego Anthem”.

The band recorded a four song EP and went fishing for partners and soon convinced Playground Music Scandinavia and Drakkar Entertainment to collaboration.

“Tracedawn’s debut impresses with outstanding technical skills, a feel for great melodies and a playful ravenous appetite which you can practically feel.” METAL HAMMER (GER)

“What these youngsters from Finland have delivered on their current debut album could hardly be fresher, more hungry and more dynamic.” – SONIC SEDUCER

After the successful year 2008 Tracedawn already had songs ready for their second album. The band hooked up with producer Janne Joutsenniemi (Stam1na, Suburban Tribe etc.) also known from Finnish metal legend Stone. Thrilled about the opportunity to work together with one of the most appreciated metalheads in Finland the band started to work their ideas into reality at Seawolf and Redhouse Studios.

With Ego Anthem Tracedawn redeems the high expectations their well received debut set upon them and takes it even further. The new album represents a self-assured band that combines strong melodies and furious riffs into a progressive, dynamic and contagious metal music.

Says singer Antti Lappalainen: “This time we chose to let it all out without thinking that much and taking ourselves too serious. I think these are the biggest reasons why Ego Anthem combines various influences from power and thrash to death metal. The songs can change from calm and beautiful into full blown mayhem in a blink of an eye.”

The guys will show off their live skills for the first time on international stages during the summer by playing at Rock Hard and Wacken Open Air festivals in Germany. The new album Ego Anthem will also be supported with tour around Europe
