About Wayward Dawn
“The best metal band I’ve seen in the competition in years.”
– Anders, Assistant manager of Emergenza Festival Denmark.
Formed in October 2015 in Skanderborg, Wayward Dawn slowly but surely began writing music and building their name. With inspiration from bands such as Gojira, Lamb of God and Behemoth, Wayward Dawn plays hard-hitting groove/death metal, while sometimes adding a pinch of black.
After just one live show, they were booked to play at Cold Beers and Bleeding Ears in Slagelse, supporting bands like Jinjer from Ukraine and Electric Hellride and The Vision Ablaze from Denmark.
Following that, they supported Red Warszawa in Skanderborg and made it all the way to the finale of the West Denmark Emergenza Festival, where judges from SPOT Festival and the Danish music magazine GAFFA voted them to win 2nd place out of 12 bands. In connection with Emergenza Festival, they have played at acknowledged venues like VoxHall and Train in Aarhus. To finish 2017 off, they supported Nailed to Obscurity from Germany and played at Aalborg Metal Festival, where Heavymetal.dk gave them a score of 8 out of 10 for their live show.
Now they are planning for the future. Currently in the process of writing their debut album coming in 2018.
