Hot News: Before The Dawn – Tuomas Saukkonen Announces End Of Band

After 14 successful years with 7 highly acclaimed studio albums, mastermind Tuomas Saukkonen has now decided to put an end to his dark/melancholic melodic death metal band BEFORE THE DAWN as well as to all of his other current projects, including BLACK SUN AEON, DAWN OF SOLACE and ROUTASIELU. “I’ve already been thinking about this for a few years”, Tuomas states. “At some point I realized I was keeping the band alive without feeling right anymore. I lost the passion to make music my own way. Now that BEFORE THE DAWN is done, it’s logical for me to clean the table completely and start building something from scratch again.”

As far as his new goals are concerned, the multi-instrumentalist explains: “From now on I’ll solely focus on my new band called WOLFHEART – all my attention and energy shall flow into it. My main intention is to create a band that combines BEFORE THE DAWN’s engery with the low-tuned, dark, heavy and epic atmosphere of BLACK SUN AEON.” 

In order to give you a first impression of what WOLFHEART will sound like, Tuomas has uploaded a teaser to his official YouTube channel. Watch it here:

08.02. Nuclear Nightclub, Oulu
09.02. Amarillo, Lahti
15.02. Musta Kynnys, Jyväskylä
16.02. Rytmikatti, Kouvola

Later this year, BEFORE THE DAWN’s Finnish label Stay Heavy Records will release a 3CD-best-of-box entitled “My Darkness”, including songs by all of Tuomas’ bands. Keep an eye on the band’s website/Facebook page to stay updated on this.

Saukkonen’s last words are dedicated to the fans of all of his projects: “Even though a lot of things will change, the music I’ve created will never disappear and I am working on new music at the moment, even though under a different name. I hope to see everybody in Lahti on the farewell show and after that many times at WOLFHEART shows. You´re the best!”
