Black Dawn Rising Death Metal / Co. Carlow

Carlow based band who seem to have been around in some shape or form since 2008. Some early demo tracks were recorded and circulated back in 2009. They were winners of the crowd vote at the Metal 2 The Masses battle of the bands final in 2018. But have since been on hiatus with family, work commitments and of course Covid 19 bullshit, etc.

They have however recently spent some time writing and recording songs, new and old, and releasing them on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, etc… with more to be released. And they are now gearing up to burst back onto the Irish metal scene and get more exposure.
