By the influence of Scandinavian bands, HAWTHORN began in October of 2000 in Curitiba – Parana (Brazil). Intending to compose extreme symphonic metal with well worked melodies and vocals.
HAWTHORN have released two recordings independently. 2008’s “Dawn of Blood” EP, and 2010’s “Thorns and Blood”. Neither recording had been previously released in North America. Sullen Records will release a limited edition CD featuring both recordings in February 2010. HAWTHORN is currently working on a new full length album for release in 2011. The new full length will be released later this year on Intense Millennium Records.
