Black Dawn has been performing live music of the metal / heavy rock genre in the Long Island / New York City area since 1996. Black Dawn has consisted of the same four members for all eighteen years of live performances: Matt Kotten (Lead Guitar / Vocals), Tom Kelly (Rhythm Guitar), James Lane (Bass Guitar), Enzo DiPaolo (Drums). Black Dawn’s most direct musical influences include Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Disturbed, Down, Fight, Godsmack, Korn, Life of Agony, Metallica, Mudvayne, Soil, Soundgarden, Staind, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, Volbeat, and White Zombie.
Black Dawn’s discography consists of the EP “Black Dawn (1996), the live CD “Live at CBGB’s (1998), two full-length CD’s “Absence of Time” (1999) and “Age of Reason” (2004), and the EP “Until We Meet” (2014). Selected tracks from all of these releases have been included in rotation on hundreds of various college / internet radio stations and podcasts worldwide. All five tracks from “Until We Meet” are currently available for free download on www.reverbnation.com/blackdawnband among other websites.
Black Dawn has performed / participated in numerous shows, festivals, competitions and conferences from New York City to Los Angeles and has opened for acts such as Kings X, Daisy Berkowitz, LA Guns, Biohazard, and Michale Graves (ex Misfits vocalist). Black Dawn has performed in many famous venues in New York City including Webster Hall, CBGB’s, the Continental, and the Hard Rock Cafe.
Perhaps the best thing that could be said about Black Dawn is that, even after all this time, the band has no intention of slowing down. The band is writing new songs all the time so creatively, there is still plenty of gas left in the tank. Still plenty more shows to perform.
Basically, a band like Black Dawn is what you get when you combine four metal / rock musicians who are able to work together over the long term through thick and thin to continue to bring their act to the stage.
