Music video for In Hoc Signo Vinces:



These six guys from cold Norway, where its survival of the fittest, have proved their right to play with the big boys. Their music is described by the press as “blackened melo-deathcore”, and with the bands “take no prisoners”-attitude, energic musical style and live-performance they have captured their audience, and there’s no way back.

Starting out as Misery Conduct they started their early trials with line-up changes and finding their musical stride. As soon as they started finding their sound and settle down they went on to win Club Maiden’s DeathMatch (a battle of the bands where the audience vote for their favorite), giving them a prize consisting of free studio time to record their debut album “Sic Vic Pacum Para Bellum”, an album that has recieved extremely good reviews:

“..It‘s rarely thai I‘m so impressed by a debut, as I’ve been by Shot At Dawn’s ‘Sic Vic Pacum Para Bellum’. This sounds realy proffesional.”
4.5/6 ­- Eternal Terror Webzine

“Deathmetalcore to the people!”
8/10 -

“In conclusion, what we have here is a great and abnormally mature debut.
These guys take deathcore to a whole new level with this release. Highly recommended.”
5/5 - Pivotal Rage Webzine

“I can‘t find anything negative abort this album, so watch out! Shot At Dawn is going to conquer the world. And it‘s a wonder they don‘t have a record deal!”
10/10 Icon Music Mag

With a debut full-length on their belt, they released a EP in the fall of 08 titled “Pre Bellum“, containing re-recordings of the songs In Hoc Signes Vinces and The Broken, both presented on their debut album, a heavy hitting cover-versjon of Cash’s Ring Of Fire and a nice little intro-piece pleasing all fans of Evil Dead.
So with a full-length album, an ass-kicking EP, a bucket full of liveshows, new-signed management and on-going record-deal negotiations, Shot At Dawn is ready to captivate every single metalhead out there.

“Load your guns. Unbelivers are shot at dawn!”
