In 2007, the band announced they were disbanding after 14 years and five albums. It was too difficult for the members to handle the band as well as their day jobs. After several setbacks, including lineup changes and business problems they lost the motivation to continue as band.
In the beginning of the 21th century the Harz-Mountain based band was called one of the most promising newcomer of the German scene. Shows at Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze and the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig raised their fame among the audience and their debut record, Baneful Skies, won praise from the print media. They managed to mix up traditional and typically metal sounds with a unique note of power and melancholy.
Now, five years after their disbanding, the five musicians decided that the time has come to get back together with new energy and dozens of new ideas.
On October 1st the band releases a new EP in digital form, as well as a very limited amount of physical copies, which will be sold at their upcoming shows.
In 2013 Dark At Dawn will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a new full- album and shows at different festivals. Be prepared!
