When Before The Dawn was preparing to record 3rd album ”The Ghost” Saukkonen realized that he had over 30 songs written.
First idea was to simply make an double album for BTD but some of the material written started to sound too slow and dark for BTD style and Saukkonen decided to push that darker direction a bit further and form a completely new project called Dawn Of Solace.
Debut album ”The Darkness” came out in may 2006 featuring BTD vocalist Lars Eikind on clean vocals and Jukka Salovaara on guest vocals and solo guitar. After the release several issues with label forced the project to go on a hiatus for undefined amount of time.
It took 13 years and 14 written albums until an idea of a song came up that ignite the flame to bring DOS back from over a decade of rest. After the floodgate opened the writing process for the album came really easy and fast and most of the music has been composed as a rather free stream of thoughts instead of a result of carefully planned and long timed pre-production. Waves came out to be a honest picture of the current times for its writer. Grey, heavy and dark but still sorrow carrying certain beauty and strength.
New album features Mikko Heikkilä (Black Sun Aeon, Kaunis Kuolematon) as vocalist taking over all vocal duties and Lars Eikind (Before The Dawn, Dawn Of Solace) as guest vocalist in one song. With Lars Eikind also Jukka Salovaara appears on the album as guest solo guitarist for 2 songs completing the circle with the debut album.
