Dark New Day’s New Tradition is the much anticipated follow up to their 2005 debut Twelve Year Silence. Compromised of members of Sevendust, Evanescence, and Stereomud, among others, it’s pretty much going to likely follow the same basic structure of this style.

Demo versions of the songs have been recorded with other drummer and singer. The demo is not so perfectly recorded and technically played but in some aspects it is more sincere and warm than the full-length CD. The songs are more Power Metal oriented and dynamic with dominant keyboard work. Former singer Max Zhena has a wide ranged voice which it is slightly lower than Steve Braun’s one and not so typical for Progressive Metal.
