Thomas Hair Hard for modern female-fronted symphonic metal to get much better. Catchy anthemic choruses, impeccably sung, with wonderful production, all instruments given interesting parts to shine. While the brilliant singer brings the songs to life, what truly makes Everdawn stand out is the songwriting and variation within and between songs. Albums with operatic vocals can get monotonous, but this one never really does! An exemplary debut and early highlight of 2021! Favorite track: Cleopatra.

H.L. TOP 2021 #1: Symphonic pathos, operatic female vocals, varied and rousing songwriting and a powerful transparent production are the main assets of this gothic metal gem. Sure, "Cleopatra" is not original, especially Xandria, Epica or Nightwish come now and then to my mind, but that does not matter when the result is so convincing that it tops my annual list! Touching anthems like "Ghost Shadow Requiem" or "Heart of a Lion" belong to the best tunes I listened to in this genre. Majestic! Favorite track: Heart Of A Lion.

Everdawn is a symphonic metal band based out of New Jersey. The band was originally known as Midnight Eternal. Following successful tours in support of Queensryche and Therion, the band went through a line up change during the demo phase of their second album. The core writing team of Richard Fischer, Boris Zaks, and Daniel Prestup remained intact. With the addition of Alina Gavrilenko on vocals and Mike LePond (Symphony X) on bass, the band rechristened themselves as Everdawn.

Through the course of eleven epic new songs, the band delivers 48 minutes of progressive symphonic excellence on their conceptual work Cleopatra.

The album was mixed and mastered by noted engineer/musican/producer Dan Swanö at Unisound (Opeth, Katatonia, ao). Therion vocalist Thomas Vikström provides additional guest vocals on one track.
