Just Before Dawn is Anders Biazz’s well-deserved return to the spotlight after a self-inflicted fifteen-year hiatus From the scene. As one of the founding members of Scum, the first moniker of the band that would later be rechristened Amon Amarth, he helped build the foundations the Viking warriors are still standing on to this day. Sadly, right after the band bad completed their debut full-length for Metal Blade (“Once Sent From The Golden Hah”) in 1998, he had to step down to take care of his newly born son and putty soon “lost interest in metal for a while” as he was struggling with his “former psycho girlfriend who did her best to Fuck up my life” He credits his. Friends for bringing him “back to the fold” in 2008, first Benny Moberg and Manias Parkkila from Maifeitor who convinced him to kickstart Blood Mortized, and then former Paganiser skinbasher Jocke Ringdal For teasing him with a Hypocrisy live video he posted on his Facebook page, “[The] heavy sound triggered me into writing my own steam rolling tunes, good old straight-forward death metal, you know. Since 1 was already in touch with Kogga [Johansson] from Paganizer, he was the first to know and actually was the one who suggested we’d use different vocalists. It’s not exactly a solo project nor a proper band and it lies somewhere in between I guess, We’re using a lot of pests but these days, Jenny Petreison From Wombbalb and Ashcloud on vocals and Brynjar Mtlgetun on drums are permanent members so...” Still, the list of musicians who’ve taken part in the band’s two albums so far (not to mention the recently released EP The Dead And Those About To Die’]1 feels like a who’s who of the old-school death metal scene: Martin van Dninen (Asphyx), Dave Ingram (ex-Benediction), Ralf Hauber (Revel In Flesh), Kam Lee (ex-Massacre), Jonas Lindlood (Puteraeon), Jonas Stälhammar (Bombs Of Hades), Stephen Gebedi [Hail Of Bullets, Thanatos] and so on. With its cover an actual picture of a Japanese soldier’s head stuck on a tank after he had unfortunately stepped on a mine, the new EP illustrates Just Before Dawn’s main lyrical theme: World War 11, “That dark period for mankind fits out music so well. Then again, even if about 80% of our lyrics are about it we have some songs about soldiers in other unmentioned wars or Specific missions.” 2016 will witness the launch of their already completed third album called ‘Tides Of Blood’ which will include “much darker material about (he 0-Day invasion and the Holocaust.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

There are certain times in history that will always remain special in your heart throughout your life. People often talk about the first time they have seen a certain band and I am no exception. It’s been a blessing to have had the opportunity to see so many bands in my life and, if pushed, I could recount many. After a number of false starts to actually see Neurosis in a live setting, I remember finally getting the chance to see them for the first time at Dudley JB’s with Today Is The Day (featuring Bill Kelliher and Brann Dailor, who would later form Mastodon) and Voivod (with Eric Forrest). The hall was cavernous, certainly not overly busy in terms of punters, and yet the sonics that blasted through the speakers that night could not have sounded any more apocalyptic. Truly jawdropping and, frankly, life-changing. I know I am not the only one who has experienced similar and for that reason, it is a pleasure to celebrate Neurosis’ 30th anniversary with a cover feature that covers the band’s continuing career. José Carlos Santos has excelled himself as always in producing a fantastic article with Scott Kelly and Steve Von Till and I truly hope you love reading it. Elsewhere it’s always a pleasure to chat to Karl Willetts from Bolt Thrower and now of his new band Memoriam – please flick to the news pages to read about the new band now! And of course, plenty of other cool-as-fuck bands to read about and enjoy. See you next month! Adios DARREN SADLER
