Before The Dawn – Live Review

The Decade of Darkness has fallen on Budapest

At the 28th of October, 2009 Before The Dawn was performing live at Diesel Club, Budapest, Hungary, behalf of their Deacde of Darkness tour.
Unforunately, they was only a foreplay band, right before Amorphis. Anyway, the guys just ruled the whole night, with their absolutely superb performance.

After Amoral stepped down the stage, the guys toke the stage, set up their equipment in just about 3-4 minutes, and started with some mystic, melodic synth intro,and then they started playing “Disappear”.
The most fanatics started handbanging and waving as crazy as they could, while Toumas growled the first lines of one of their most amazing songs.
And, just not to get bored while reading my article, let’s hear the song!

I have to say, I am very impressed. I never thought that the guys could perform any greater than their constant 150%, but they did!

They played from their heart, giving the best live performance, I have ever seen. Lars’s “angellike” vocals and Tuomas’s dark vocal sounded even better, then on CD.
After “Disappear” ended, Lars did greet us all, and a guy shouted something in finnish (I can’t remember exactly, only that it began with “k”, and Lars said, that every concert, there is a guy, who knows this word).

The next song was “Faithless”, from the album called “Deadlight”. This was followed by “Unbreakable”, which you can listen just below.

After a couple of minutes, they moved on of their most melodic song, called “Monsters”. Sadly, we have only recorded a part of this song, but you can enjoy it anyway.

The next masterpiece we recorded was “My Darkness”. One of their best songs ever. I have read many times, that Lars can’t sing this song properly. Well, he just falsified it, in my opinion. But you can listen it, right now.


After the half of the show, they had a little “break”. This means, that Juho and Atte (drums) went to refresh theirselves, and Tuomas stayed on stage and started playing “My Room”.
They played a kind of ambient version of the song, only Lars was singing. I have to say, it was excellent. I think they could put this version as an extra song on their next album.

When the guys returned, they played “The Black”. And now it’s time, to check out this two songs too.

The last song was, as usually during this tour, their most succesfull single ever, “Deadsong”.
As they announced it, the fans went instantly crazy, as the first notes reached their ears. Crazy headbanging and waving, during the whole song.
The best thing a band could whish themselve. I guess. Check it out!

The band also played “Exile”, “Morning Sun” and “Scar”, which we haven’t recorded, unfortunatley.

I have to say once again, I am more than impressed and satisfied with the band’s live performance.
They just know, how to make the fans crazy about them. Great show, awesome performance and fantastic music!
And one more thing, what I really appreciated. There was not much talk between two songs, Lars only told the title of the next song’s title, and they started playing immediately.
Thank you guys once more, for coming to Budapest, and bringing us to heaven for an hour. Hope we can see you very soon again!
