Dawn Ahead were originally founded in the spring of 2011. The founding members were guitarist and songwriter Thomas Wolf, and the Colombian bassist Alfonso "Pocho" Mejia. First songs were written by home recording before a few weeks later Marcel Martin joined as a guitarist and songwriter for the band.

After Jan Bechtlof (drums) and Chrischaan Wilsberg (vocals), have completed the Band in 2012, Dawn Ahead were able to begin regular Rehearsals. Dawn Ahead follows a very controversial style, which includes classic elements of Metal, and modern sounds. The extremely versatile musical range of classical but very hard metal, through progressive elements, to the brutal Thrash, overwhelmed basically all drawer fetishists and style fanatics.

In April 2014 Dawn Ahead released their self titled 5 track EP, and have since been looking for a label to produce the first official Album.

On 14.04.2018 the new 6-Track EP "A Trip Of Violence" was released. A Trip Of Violence turned out to be much more aggressive than the first release. For 2019, Dawn Ahead have finally scheduled their first album.
