Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, DIAMOND DAWN are easily one of the most promising melodic rock bands to come out of the Scandinavian underground scene. They came to the attention of the fans thanks to the digital release of the song ”Standing As One”, which created a very nice buzz. In a world where rock and roll seems to lack a certain positive nerve,DIAMOND DAWN stands for a vision of conveying energy and excitement through their pompous and melodic, yet hard-rocking songs.
”Our intention is to have a good time, and make people wanna have a good time,” says guitarist Olle Lindahl. ”We wanted to write some great music and release a rockin’ debut album; we definitely think that we managed to capture the positive energy that DIAMOND DAWN is all about. ‘Overdrive’ is the album that we would want to go out and buy and tell the world about.” He adds: ”We’re not doing what we do or sound like we do for the purpose of keeping something old alive. We’re a bunch of guys that love to play together and when we do, the sound and output comes naturally. Our music is very melodic and pompous rock with a strong positive nerve. Each band member comes from a different musical backg round and that is what definitely makes the sound what it is. There is no way to control that as long as you do what you feel like.”
DIAMOND DAWN‘s new single, ”Take Me Higher”, was released digitally on January 17.
