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.
