Early in the year 2003, somewhere at the far end of a valley lost in the Swiss Alps, Dawnless takes shape in the silence of an icy cold January month. The band's name's meaning is related to the area where the members come from which is forsaken by the sun throughout the long winter months.
The will to share its passion for Metal and Hard Rock is beyond any doubt the main goal of theses five close friends. Through time and work Dawnless grows and builds up confidence. New songs appear, gigs follow one another, the crowd, always following, shares the motivation that each member has for what he’s doing.
It is during this initial period that the musicians finally reach the music style that will lead them for the upcoming years. A kind of music made of heavy riffs without putting aside the melodic side found in the 80’s Metal and Hard Rock. The band members are also highly influenced by today’s greatest Scandinavian bands.
And so it is that Dawnless slowly self creates its own universe during these past few years leading to the recording, in early 2006, of its first album: “A Way of Escape” followed, a few months later with the video shooting “Winds of Fate” made in the heart of the Alps.
"A Way of Escape" opens many doors for the band, allowing it, in November 2007, to perform on the renowned stage of the Z7 in Pratteln during the "Battle of Metal" contest!
Convinced by the potential and the audience's interest for their music, Dawnless' members lock themselves in their rehearsal room - which is also used as a recording studio - and give birth, in June 2008, to a new album named "While Hope Remains". This second record, more powerful, mature and trimmed than "A Way of Escape" represents a first real achievement for the musicians who will definitely not slow down the machine at this point...
