Meridian Dawn was conceived when guitarist Brandon Johnson, Antony Hämäläinen (Armageddon, ex-Nightrage), and drummer Johan Nunez (ex-Nightrage, Firewind) decided that they wanted to create music together, following that, bass player Nicholas Ziros (Into the Moat, ex-Remembering Never) and guitarist Christopher "CJ" Cussell (Before The Mourning) were recruited to form Meridian Dawn. After almost a year of hard work & intense file exchange as the majority of the band live in different parts of the world. On March 25, 2014 the band released its first ever EP titled "The Mixtape EP". It is a collection of five songs that were created in different studios, with different producers from both Sweden and America respectively.
Meridian Dawn's music is generally considered a mixture of European death metal and melodic death metal., The Age Of Metal observes "vocal contrasts between clean and guttural vocals are impressive, and the production value goes beyond expectation for an EP release". VarietyOfDeathZine commented the band "has a modern and melodic approach to metal while also being very heavily influenced by death metal which shows up mostly in the vocals."
