Approaching Dawn (A.D.) is an all original metal band formed in late 2010 in Ingleside, IL. Within its first 18 months, A.D. began writing music and playing local venues. During this time, they rehearsed and recorded their debut album, Evolution of Reality, released June 2012.
Evolution of Reality showcases this 5-piece modern metal act’s range and unrelenting drive with 12 scorching and brutal tracks that have garnered the attention of fans, fellow musicians and critics throughout the metal community. Their music draws a strong emotional response, and has the ability to make the listener question the ideology of the norm and expose the misguided logic of the masses.
With the passion to stay true to their roots, A.D. also desires to write their music in a modern setting, and to create the best possible music for their fans by providing an experience that is powerful and full of emotion; to give their fans something worth coming out to see show after show, venue after venue, from Chicago to Milwaukee and where ever else the journey takes them!
“We are not strangers…we all somewhat think alike. We know right from wrong and compassion from hatred. Evolution of Reality seems to question that ideology. So, please, take a listen to the logic, desperation and brutality that we paint for you.
The time is coming.
We are all Approaching Dawn.” [+]
