This album is almost the antithesis of everything that black metal was designed to be, and I love it for it.

This album opened my eyes for atmospheric black metal.
The songs are really fucking good and the artwork even better!

A total banger!

I love all of Skyforest's previous releases but for some reason I didn't have much interest in A New Dawn until almost an entire year after it came out. I expected this to be a step down from Unity but now having gone through it a few times I think this is Bogdan Makarov's best work, though not by a wide margin.

The sound is mostly the same but this time there are a few different layers to the atmosphere. The most noticeable changes on A New Dawn are a focus on dynamics in the writing and and an overall improvement in production. There's also a gentleness and attention to detail here that makes it utterly captivating. I felt like every song is a more thorough journey than most of Skyforest's previous songs.

I'm very glad that instead of stagnating this band's talent is continuing to grow in all directions, with a special mention to Michael Rumple's singing. He has really improved.
