H. P. L. What a surprise. Simply the best song of 2014. Starts off like a folk song, becomes an epic twin-guitar elegy. Favorite track: One-Eyed Sister.

Fernando Benítez That genius without an image has done it again: Chris Black delivers his gloomiest metal history lesson so far. From jethro tull-like medieval stylings all the way to a brief black metal section, this is like a doomier Iron Maiden or a more epic and tcehnical W. General.. In a Platonic world, this one sits eternally alongside Judas Priest's or Trouble's best works. Plus, you gotta love Black's tribute to Mercy Fate and KIng D. Indeed! Favorite track: Funeral Child.

Known as one of America’s most cult underground heavy metal bands, DAWNBRINGER have always been one of the hidden gem ambassadors of true American metal, led by none other than acclaimed heavy metal musician/multi-instrumentalist visionary Chris Black. Lurking within the metal underground for almost 20 years now, Black (who also masterminds the rocking metal outfit High Spirits) has created a vision with DAWNBRINGER unlike any other band in American heavy metal today. Well known metal blog Invisible Oranges have even recently christened Black as “heavy metal’s last singer-songwriter.”

The new DAWNBRINGER album “Night Of The Hammer” is the perfect example of this. Comprised of ten stripped down singer-songwriter heavy metal odes trending even more towards rock territory, the songs from “Night Of The Hammer” display themselves as more mid-paced/slower-like melodic wonders that sway through beautiful guitar harmonics, with mostly straightforward time-signatures, and Black’s unique and glorious vocals we’ve always known for him to deliver. Musically “Night Of The Hammer” goes even more traditional and straightforward than any previous DAWNBRINGER album, with its classic metal vibe inherent throughout, the new album also incorporates a classic ‘70s vibe with even more of a doomier vibe as well at times. “Night Of The Hammer” could also very well be the most unique DAWNBRINGER offering, in vibe and structure, right behind/alongside 2006’s “In Sickness And In Dreams”.

Another chapter in the DAWNBRINGER legacy nonetheless is at hand and once again DAWNBRINGER are here to claim heavy metal as the law.
