Do you like melodic death acts such as Dark Tranquility or In Flames? Or perhaps you're more the Agalloch, Swallow The Sun, or Wintersun types? Either way, you'll absolutely love this album. Great riffs, keyboard, guitar, and singer (with two alternate voices). If you just preview one song on this album, try Transcendence, and you'll see what I'm talking about! Throes of Dawn (to me) literally came from nowhere to become one of my favorite bands in my itunes library. In my opinion, they've bested Nile, Agalloch, COB, Fear Factory, and tied Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy. I'm pretty sure that they will do the same to you! P.S. First review. I can't believe no one else has reviewed this band yet; spread the word people!!
