      Black Dawn 'On Blackened Wings' Review by Ariana Leo

      Black Dawn

      On Blackened Wings

      Pavement Entertainment

      Released: May 3rd, 2019

      Review by Ariana Leo, Photojournalist

      After a five-year hiatus, New York natives Black Dawn return to the hard rock scene, making their independent label debut with On Blackened Wingsan emotional, grunge-metal inspired EP with a recurring lyrical theme of a desire and need to be saved. 

      The album opens with a loud burst of heavy guitar, soon breaking into a handful of shredding solos by lead guitarist Tom Kelly. “Hold Me Down” shows off the band’s ability to infuse life into a song just when you thought it might’ve been over, picking up the rhythm and the energy after a melancholy-feeling moment. Bassist Shawn Cox gets his moment to shine in the intro of “Thoughts of Yesterday,” a more melodic, mid-tempo track that deals with themes of loneliness and feeling misunderstood. “I Can’t Believe,” the longest track on the album, clocks in at 6:30 and features an epic breakdown that will inevitably make for a killer live performance - a deliberate and unsurprising choice, since Black Dawn are no strangers to the stage, having opened for big-name acts such as Puddle of Mudd and former Misfits vocalist Michale Graves.

      Overall, On Blackened Wings serves as a thunderous, ground-shaking reminder that Black Dawn are back and here to stay. Until now, these four talented musicians have primarily made their name known in and around their home state, but this new EP sparks hope that a national headlining tour is in the works.
