Armored Dawn, formed in 2014 in São Paulo, are a classic power metal band that draws much of their influence from viking based ideology. Making waves within Brazil with numerous headline appearances, the band has also opened for bands such as Megadeth, Symphony X, Marillion, Offspring and Sabaton, besides touring Europe with Fates Warning. America got their first taste of Armored Dawn on Motorboat (Motorhead’s Cruise) in 2016.

Hailed by the metal press for their first Tommy Hansen (Helloween, Jorn) produced album Power of Warrior, Revolver magazine dubbed them to possess “The Epicness of Iron Maiden in Brazilian Fashion” and SOUNDI magazine wrote “It’s more than just a sample of a great heavy band, It’s a statement of intentions from a group that is here to conquer followers”.

“Barbarian in Black”, is the new album, produced by Kato Khandwala (Pretty Reckless, Papa Roach) and Bruno Agra (We are Harlot). The epic vídeo for the first single “Sail Away”, had more than 100,000 views in the first week.
