Underground Gems: DAWN’s Epic Masterpiece, Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy)

As part of the unending well of magical albums coming out of Sweden, DAWN released what ended up being their final album, Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy).  The sentiment among fans is that DAWN nor this album got their just due with the media or underground scene as a whole.  While the album is not flawless, it is undoubtedly a gem in the pantheon of classic Swedish black/death metal of the 90’s.

The band’s first full-length, Nær sólen gar niþer for evogher, had a cool sound and showed plenty of promise but things did not gel overall.  However, they took things to the next level with a greater singular focus on creating an epic, unrelenting album with 10+ minute songs.  The riffs were much better, sharper, and the sense of urgency that was not omnipresent on on DAWN‘s debut was in full effect.  Maybe it’s the penultimate front cover artwork but Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy) has an ominous atmosphere that is deeply embedded into the album.

There are few album openers that come in like a thundering storm like “The Knell and the World” do.  It is far and away the most poignant track.  The folk influences were intact from their debut as shown on “To Achieve the Ancestral Powers“.  The distinctly Swedish melodies are excellent as demonstrated on the riff that carries “The Aphelion Deserts.”  Keyboards appear here and there to accentuate riffs and create atmosphere.  Amongst the seven tracks, “Stalker’s Blessing,” is probably the weakest as it carries the least momentum.  However, DAWN close it out in blasting style with “Malediction Murder.”

Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy) was out of print for over a decade with the demise of issuing label, Necropolis Records, driving the prices of the CD on ebay.  Century Media Records came to the rescue by re-releasing all of their albums, including a compilation of their early demos entitled The Eternal Forest, on CD and vinyl back in 2014.

  6. I manage a vape store directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers for sale CBD product lines. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has written to use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store website directory. We do not retail CBD goods such as CBD oil. We merely provide marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Well known Health Merchant and if you take a close look, you will see that they sell a relatively considerable stable of CBD items, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment method. It seems that PayPal is employing twos sets of rules to different companies. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has restricted my payment possibilities and right now, I am heavily dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken to a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is totally not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic criterion to all firms. I am yet to check with another lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
