When Day Descends

When Day Descends are a progressive atmospheric rock/metal band from Tasmania, Australia.

The project began in 2001 as a solo project for guitarist Dave Caswell before the addition of Linton Tuleja on drums since 2005.

Read an Extended Biography

The music is influenced by progressive rock, post rock and atmospheric progressive metal, with each release having its own signature sound. Future releases will continue to evolve by bringing varying styles into the mix, from folk to atmospheric metal and everything in between. The songs are detailed and creative, exploring the darker side of the human experience.

When Day Descends have released four studio albums. The first of these, “Transcend”, was released as an instrumental solo project in 2005. This album is based around detailed acoustic driven progressive rock, which builds into progressive metal influenced climaxes. The second album, “Ascension”, is a single 40-minute film-score inspired piece. It was released for free download in 2006.

2010 saw the release of the first self-titled album as a full band, which explores long progressive songs again, this time based around the heavier side of music and having vocals for the first time. The fourth album “Embers” was released in 2015 and is again instrumental, and further explores the atmospheric progressive rock and metal genre.
