BEFORE THE DAWN
"4:17" (Locomotive; 2004)
Reviewed by Snidermann
As with all music, some heavy music rocks, some is just okay, and some just plain sucks. Before The Dawn's "4:17" falls squarely in the middle.
I really liked the attitude of this band; their music is done with plenty of heart and style. The vocals were twofold: Sometimes they were kind of wimpy and sad; at other times they were harsh and heavy. It's the latter that I really liked.
The music was best when it rocked. When it slowed down, it was just a drag. This is a band that has tremendous potential and talent. If only they would keep up the energy and speed of their songs, I think they would go further.
Still, even with that downside, I liked enough of what I heard on "4:17" to rate the CD a solid three guitar saw.
Before The Dawn: Sani Miettinen - drums; Panu Willman - guitar and vocals; Tuomas Saukkonen - guitar and dark voice; Tani Broman - bass; Mika Ojala - keyboards.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
