The "New Band To Burn One To" today is Before Dawn.
"BEFORE DAWN are the ADD-afflicted, Ritalin-addicted, sludgy, doom-punk bastard child of a woolly mammoth and ya mum’s love for overproof moonshine. A deathly mix of a sordid love for the prehistoric and the predatory; a hyper tense, super focused live set that leaves you wet, broke and confused. Featuring members of Sydney bands The Riot & the Trauma and Attica, these are the boys who will be keeping you up all night and you know it's gonna be a long night, a night that's at its most heavy, just BEFORE DAWN."
Before Dawn from Sydney, AU powers their way though songs mixed with crusty riffs and raspy smoke-filled vocals engulfing the listener in a billowing swirl of sludge, doom, blues and punk. There is no word yet on any future releases. In the meantime, check out their tunes on Reverb Nation.
