With Tales Of The Black Dawn, DAGOBA created a worthy follow up to Post Mortem Nihil Est in between their extensive touring. Tales Of The Black Dawn starts off with the softer Epilogue, an intro that creates a dark, dramatic atmosphere from the first tune on, being the perfect stylistic device for what is about to come. Directly followed by The Sunset Curse, hitting it off with its hammering machine gun sound and the characteristic powerful shouting, the message becomes quiet clear. Half Damn Life, with its driving riff, will definitely get the festival crowd going in the mosh pits. The melodic breaks in The Dawn fit perfectly in the overall picture, creating a dynamic atmosphere for the entire record. It’s the sixth album, DAGOBA are about to release and they’re definitely ready to raise their game once more. Their sound could only have been born and bred in the South of France. The revolutionary spirit of Marseille is infused in DAGOBA’s music and attitude with its stomach-punching rawness of true heavy metal and circle-pit inciting bottom end in the DAGOBA sound, all of it beautifully balanced by classical elements and the throb and grind of industrial.
