4 stars I thought this album was going to be more of a post metal record than anything else, but boy I was wrong. Red Sparrowes provided a solid piece of post rock with At the Soundless Dawn. There is post metal at times, but the only part I would describe as post metal to someone else would the the opening track. Other stuff to note is the common usage of the pedal steel guitar and the album's theme. The theme details the fact that humanity is causing the sixth mass extinction, while the five previous mass extinctions were caused by natural causes. There are no lyrics, the music is entirely instrumental, so the theme is expressed through audio samples and the long, poetic song titles.

Musically, Red Sparrowes is impressive. The beautiful wall of sound created by the guitars is enjoyable, and the somewhat serene songs make for perfect songs to back up studying, reading, or just chilling out with friends. I recommend this album for both post metal and post rock fans, as they will both find something to enjoy from this record.
