On Saturday June 18th. it was time for Mauce.nl Fest. in celebration of the 10th anniversary of The Metal Resource, the festival took place in Almelo (NL) at Naxt Stage, the city where it all began 10 years ago.
Performing bands were: Pantokrator (SE), My Silent Wake (UK), The Royal (NL), La-Ventura (NL), Undawn (NL), The Memory Remains (NL) and Empire of the Wolves (NL). In the video below you can see fan-filmed footage of their performance at Mauce.nl Festival.
Undawn‘s latest album “Justice Is..” has been released on Dec. 11th. through Graviton Music Services.
Justice, in its broadest context, includes both the attainment of that which is just and the philosophical discussion of that which is just. The concept of justice is based on numerous fields, and many differing viewpoints and perspectives including the concepts of moral correctness based on law, equity, ethics, rationality, religion, and fairness.
After several tours and over 130 shows on their all-time show list, the band is ready to be taking itself to a higher level with this brand new album. This time with a complete musical concept about the way things should be and the way they are not: Melodic metalcore with a message. After being completely blown away by the metal genre, Tom en Michiel flung themselves entirely on their passion by founding the band in 2007. Less than 2 years later, in 2009, the band stated its potential by winning the Dutch edition of Metal Battle. In 2011 the band released its first debut album ‘Jumpers’, which Aardschok Magazine called “the best metalcore album coming from the Netherlands so far”. The song ‘Glacier of Tears’ made it to ‘Best Metal’ on the 22Tracks website. In the following year the band participated in ‘The Metal Expierence’ tour, powered by Jack Daniels and Large Popmerchandising. Since Undawn has done a great number of shows in- and outside The Netherlands, which included support slots for Textures and Soulfly.
With their energetic and explosive live shows, enthusiasm and lively stage presence, Undawn is mainly described by the crowd as fun to watch and a sight for sore eyes.
