Rise of Day was officially formed in August 2008, as a solo project of guitarist Ákos Szilágyi from Gyula (Hungary).
During the last years Ákos has been involved in several local projects, including Nakwada, Indicta or Kvantor Trekk. In these bands, besides the guitar, he has played other instruments (like bass, didjeridoo, berimbao, etc.) as well, thus developed into a multi-instrumentalist. Although currently his main focus is on Rise of Day, Ákos contributes to a couple of other secondary local projects as well. His style could be still described as post-rock, post-metal and alternative.
He established a small studio in 2007. Since then he has been recording his own - and also other musicians’ - songs and has been working together with many other performers.
In December 2008, Ákos joined Chromechoes Production Netlabel. In the same month, one of his songs appeared on the Chromechoes Production’s Narcollapse compilation album. After half a year, his first EP, titled Go Alone…, was released in July 2009. Moreover, a video was produced for the song “Under the Water, in a Peaceful World”.
In the autumn of this year, the EP was released by the German Acoustic Fireworks Records as well.
Ákos second EP, which called Long Way Until The Return, was released in August 2010. In summer 2011, József Murvai joined the project and he is beating the drums in future.
Ákos and Józsi first common album was released in march 2013. They are working on the further new songs.
