Finnish Melodic Death Metal band Before the Dawn have returned after a ten year hiatus and revealed a second new single, “Chains” from their upcoming album Stormbringers, out June 30, 2023 via Napalm Records. The song is accompanied by a video and features new vocalist and Voice Of Finland finalist Paavo Laapotti with a blend of clean and growled vocals.

The band comments on the new single:

‘Chains‘ is one the slowest but yet heaviest songs on the album and really shows the diversity of the new vocalist Paavo with full range of clean and growling. Lyrically it is also a lot darker than first single “Destroyers” and fits perfectly to the inner Finnish melancholy of the makers.

The band originated as Finnish Metal Award winning Tuomas Saukkonen’s (Wolfheart) solo project, but throughout the years, there have been several lineup changes. With the new lineup, the band introduces its biggest changes so far. Previous guitarist and vocalist Saukkonen has moved behind the drums, and Paavo Laapotti has taken on all vocalist duties, while Swallow The Suns Juho Räihä, who has been with the band since 2006, performs lead guitar duties.

The band comments on the new album:

Stormbringers breaks a silence that lasted over 10 years and brings BEFORE THE DAWN back stronger than ever. A decade of gathering strength, growing the hunger and building determination and now it is time for our 8th album to see the light of the day and bring the band back on the road.
