"Genesis" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Snidermann

This self-produced, four-track demo simply rocks. It is totally 80s rock'n'roll with a vocalist who obviously grew up listening to Rob Halford. In fact, the vocals were so much like Halford's, it made me want to dig out my old Judas Priest records.

The songs are all well written and presented in such a strong fashion that I am stunned some record company hasn't snatched this band up. Celestial Dawn is as good or perhaps better than most I've heard lately. 

It's hard to give a band high marks to a band when you've only heard four tracks, but it the rest of Celestial Dawn is this good, then they deserve the full treatment. 

I can't wait to hear more from Celestial Dawn.

 Celestial Dawn: JD Gunner - bass; Kash - guitars; Steel Stevens - drum; Christian Archer - vocals.

Rating Guide:

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.
