Freebie Of The Week in Loucifer Speaks Webzine (English)

Here is the link to the info: http://louciferspeaks.com/2011/10/30/freebie-of-the-week-frozen-dawn
In case you’re not familiar with the concept of “Freebie of the Week”, here’s a brief explanation… Each week I go on a little hunt through the vast wastelands of the Internet in search of FREE and LEGAL downloads. So, all of the downloads featured here will be obtainable through trustworthy means… and they’ll be guilt-free. For example, I will only ever feature music available from official band websites, profiles (such as MySpace, Reverbnation or Facebook) and Last.fm (or equivalent).

This week’s Freebie is another Black Metal band – one that hails from Spain and plays old school (yet melodic) Black Metal. Frozen Dawn have made an EP and a single available as free downloads from their website.

Frozen Dawn is a Spanish band that performs a cold old school black metal, in the style of the first black metal bands that emerged during the 90s in Norway andSweden. Its main influences are bands like Satyricon, Dissection, Darkthrone, Dark Fortress, Watain and Necrophobic. Its members have dedicated over ten years to promote the extreme metal scene in Spain having played & playing in bands like Greenfly, Spiritual Intervention, and many others.
Frozen Dawn’s music is basically inspired from a conceptual basis, Winterland. A land permanently immersed into a cold winter in which the forces of nature fight each other. A world where the supernatural meets the mystical, the worship of the moon meets the darkness and elements. A world so cruel and merciless as winter.
The first album of the band is entitled “The Old Prophecy of Winterland”. The whole album verses, through all the tracks, about the story of this land, its landscapes and of its individuals and entities that roam through Winterland.
