Dawn of Iron Blades was originally created by Rob Darken in 2004, a few years after Graveland became his solo project.
As Darken says: "There were some new people on board while creating this new face of "Dawn of Iron Blades": Olya (female choir vocals) and Miro (drums, and new drum lines). New bass and keyboard parts were prepared by me back in 2016, mix of both Polish and English version was done in 2017."
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
