BEFORE THE DAWN BIOGRAPHY
Finnish Before The Dawn saw daylight in 1999 as a solo project by Tuomas Saukkonen. The first line-up was gathered so that the band would be able to perform live. With many changes inside the band, they entered the studio to record an MCD called Gehenna. After two albums and numerous changes in the line-up, the band has walked a full circle and is once again Tuomas' solo project.BEFORE THE DAWN GENRES
