  -Tell me about the history of the band .
Joni : I created this band in year 2009. In that year i just wrote songs and then i asked Joonas to join my project. Then we play my songs i played guitar, Joonas drums and one guy bass and one guy other guitar. Then i asked Juho to join that project. After that i create band name "Frosttide" and i created that logo too! After that we practice more my songs and add Lise to play keyboards and Tuukka to play bass. now we got new basist called Jaakko!

Joni : Dawn of Frost EP is our first recording. In that EP there is songs what i wrote before i asked Joonas to play drums to Frosttide. So before Juho we got these song but when Juho join to Frosttide he write song called Unforgettable Journey and we add that song to our EP and thats it! That EP is our Dawn so thats why it's called "Dawn of Frost" and intro songs is called "Dawn".
