Tracedawn is a Finish melodic death metal band from Helsinki, Finland. The formation was back in 2005 when Tuomas Yli-Jaskari came up with an idea that would be named as Moravia and later on Tracedawn. The band signed a record contract with Redhouse FMP in late 2007 and vigorously started to record their first official release. They recorded a four song EP and went fishing for partners and soon convinced Playground Music Scandinavia and Drakkar Entertainment to collaboration. The recordings of the debut album went down at Sonic Pump Studios under the eye of producer Nino Laurenne who is known of his work for Finnish metal bands such Thunderstone, Stratovarius and Children Of Bodom amongst others.

Their self-titled debut “Tracedawn” was released in Finland in March 2008 and Central Europe followed in August the same year. The release resulted great reviews and features in media all around Europe storming about the technical capabilities and songwriting skills of this young band. It was followed up by their sophomore album “Ego Anthem”, which was released in 2009. The album represents a self-assured band that combines strong melodies and furious riffs into a progressive, dynamic and contagious metal music.
