Dusks Embrace is a melodic death metal band from Salem, Oregon. The band was founded by Pat Carter and Josh Brewer in the fall of 2006. Pat and Josh spent the next year and a half looking for the right members and beginning to write material for a full length album. In the summer of 2008 Josh Mendoza joined the band as bassist and Brandon Callicot joined on the drums. With this line up the first album Paradigm Shift was recorded. Dusks Embrace plays a blend of melodic death metal mixed with elements of progressive metal. They are currently writing their as of yet untitled second album which is planned for late 2009.
