Dawn of Ashes

Dawn of Ashes first began in 2001 in Los Angeles, California as a Dark Industrial band (which later coined the term “aggrotech” by numerous fans).

2005: Dawn of Ashes produced an independently released demo entitled; “Sacred Fever”. Shortly after the release of “Sacred Fever” Dawn of Ashes were promptly signed to international label, NoiTekk while gaining further support from the American label known as COP International and Russia’s Gravitator Records. Through the duration of their time on the above labels Dawn of Ashes made two full-length albums: “In the Acts of Violence” and “The Crypt Injection”. For a band so fixatied on visual theatrics, there was without a doubt a music video to follow. The video and imagery for “Torture Device” (the first single from “The Crypt Injection”) surely did not disappoint the fans with nearly 1 million Youtube plays.

In May Dawn of Ashes released a blog stating that they would be moving their music more into the metal genre and further away from the newly coined term “aggrotech”. According to the Official MySpace page: “With this new line up and sound, the next installment from Dawn of Ashes will summon new sights and sounds among the world with a ‘black/melodic death metal’ sound.”

With much anticipation from fans across the world it was announced that Dawn of Ashes had officially signed with Metal Blade Records to release their fourth album “Genocide Chapters”. The new album featured 11 new tracks with a brand new melodic black metal sound, just as Kristof had previously stated.

    This is some great industrial metal. Even there earlier dark electro had some good metal tones to it.

    These guys are the ones who got me into dark/underground music back when I was in middle school. I've been listening to them ever since while other bands have come and gone for me. It's very sad to see them retiring. Also, I enjoy Anathema. Much more than their metal stuff and most of what led up to it. And of course I love their electro stuff, the stuff I originally found by them.

    It comes a surprise for me, that Order of the Shadow has actually made Anathema decent for me.

    Since Nero's and K. Bathory's rivalry ended and they started co-operating instead, their music became very alike, lost it's uniqueness, quality and in general what made them big at first place... too bad I guess... not many good and fresh bands out there.

    Genocide Chapters was wicked. I love it as much as I love everything from sacred fever to crypt injection. New stuff is a bit different subject but for sure it's has fans too.
