Their hard rock and metal Live shows have always been a crucial aspect of the genre and typically a proving ground for success. "Shows are always supposed to be better than the studio recordings because they are live, which means anything goes. If you want to do an extended guitar solo, go right ahead. If you want to experiment with new equipment, effects, or fills that were not included on the CD, you can incorporate these changes at shows. The show can be an opportunity for fans to hear the songs in a more updated format" Their music has taken them touring all over the country including shows in Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and Louisville.
BLACK DAWN is a group of four musicians, a faithful road manager, an ever-growing legion of fans, a respect and appreciation for the sound of silence, and a suitcase full of aggressive and passionate hard-edged music. Based in Long Island, NY, the band has been labeled 'New York's Hardest Alternative Rock Band'. But Backwash Zine would beg to disagree, stating "...f*ck that. They're not alternative. They're metal. The way it's supposed to be...". The band describes their music as somewhere between Godsmack and Volbeat and currently have two studio albums out, "Age of Reason" and "Absence of Time," as well as live album recorded at New York's famed rock club CBGB.
