 Sorathian  Dawn  are  a  band  from  Australia  that  plays  a  very  melodic  and  occult  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2023  album  "Radiant  Terror".

  Atmospheric  sounding  synths  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  thunder  sounds  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  and  melodic  direction.  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  raw  feeling  and  the  vocals are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams.

  Most  of  the  music  is  also  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  Swedish  style  while  the  solos  and  leads  also  add  in  a  lot  of  melody.  The  songs  also  add  in  a  good  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  some  of  the  tracks  being  long  and  epic  in  length  along  with  one  track  also  introducing  clean  playing  onto  the  album,  death  metal  growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times  as  well  as  one  track  also  being  an  instrumental.

  Sorathian  Dawn  plays  a  style  of  occult  black  metal  that  is  very  melodic  and  aggressive  sounding.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  Wild  Hunt,  Kalki  The  Destroyer,  Eastern/Western  Mythologies,  Sinister  Occult  Practices  and  Doctrines.

  In  my  opinion  Sorathian  Dawn  are  a  very  great  sounding  melodic  occult  black  metal b and  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Arsonist  Of  Creation"  "Tyrant  Wolf  Cult  Attacks"  and  "Sons  of  Sulphur".  8  out  of  10.

Release Date: 10th of October 2023

FFO: Dissection, Marduk, Watain  

Location: Sydney, Australia

Sorathian Dawn is a melodic black metal band from Sydney, Australia. Since emerging from their nocturnal catacombs in 2012 to release a self-titled debut they have been a mainstay in Australia’s underground black metal scene, culminating in their most recent performance to support Watain in 2019.

In 2014 Sorathian Dawn released a single demo ‘Lawless One’ while continuing to perform locally and in 2019 they released a 5 track EP entitled ‘Sun of the Deep’. This album was steeped in occult mysticism and sinister black magic themes that wound their way through technical and melodic guitars and intense virtuosic drums.

In 2020 Sorathian Dawn returned to their crypt and began work on their latest release, ‘Radiant Terror’. They spent three years crafting a dark and majestic offering that embodies their style of sinister black metal magic and on October 10 of 2023 ‘Radiant Terror’ was unleashed from its dark tomb to blaze a new path for Sorathian Dawn.
