Who Are We?
Starting out as an individual hobby, Lithium Dawn quickly formed into Ondrej Tvarozek's pet project, and when drummer Matt Benoit, and bassist Jens Marcelis entered the picture, the desire to create a full-length record became even greater.
The music on the debut release 'AION' was the result of three long years of work, tracking and re-tracking, and a new-found respect for the process of composing an album and seeing it through. The drums were recorded with Taylor Larson (Periphery, Sky Eats Airplane, Travis Orbin), and the rest of the record was tracked and mixed by Ondrej on his home setup. 'AION' went on to be downloaded by thousands of people all over the world and Prog Magazine called it "a truly incredible achievement".
The music encompasses influences from Porcupine Tree and Opeth, to Meshuggah, Deftones, and Tool. It aims to be heavy, textural, and very melodic.
What We Need & What You Get
For our next project, the upcoming album cycle will be called "Tearing Back The Veil" and it will include 2 new studio albums. On this new material we have been expanding on the sounds we forged through 'AION' and we believe that our sound as a band will be fully realized with these releases.
With your help we can fund the recording of these albums and give them the proper release they deserve with physical packaging and promotion. If you choose to donate, it's important to us that you're getting as much value in return as possible, so we have some special edition items and bonus music collections that you can gain access to depending on how much you give. These items include physical CDs of both new albums, physical copies of 'AION', a collection of covers, an online archive of unreleased demos/b-sides, signed drumheads, and much more.
You guys are an integral part of bringing our vision for this project to life and we want you all to truly feel invested and feel like you're really helping to make this happen. Our appreciation for all of you who check out our music and choose to donate is immeasurable and we can't thank you enough for your interest in this project.
