‘Hawthorn’ Releases New Single ‘Shadows Of Silence’


The Brazilian symphonic extreme metal band Hawthorn just released a virtual single in order to anticipate the sextet’s new album , called Dark Tales. The can be heard and/or download below, by using the soundcloudplayer.

The material presents a new composition, named Shadows of Silence and a old demo song (from 2005) called Black Days which was never officially released. Shadows of Silence is the first recording with Amanda Brotto as lead singer.


Influenced by the Scandinavian bands Hawthorn began in October 2004, in Curitiba – Paraná [Brazil], in order to make extreme / symphonic metal with well worked melodies and vocals.

Hawthorn have released two recordings independently. Dawn of Blood EP 2008 and Thorns and Blood 2010. Neither recording had been previously released in North America. Sullen Records have released a limited edition CD featuring both recordings in February 2010. Blood and Thorns a CD that mixes Viking and symphonic black metal, with plenty of vocals. The lyrics speak of a path of blood, sacrifice and death on the way of the cross and pain about their faith in God. [Read our review at this location].

Sullen Records a partnership that has yielded good exposure of the band outside the country, and after a year with many shows, a highlight was the Show with Eluveitie in Sao Paulo [Brazil] 29/01/2011 and regional round metal battle in the city of Curitiba [Brazil].
