rarely come as assured – a perfect death metal gateway album” Metal Hammer (Nov 2015)
“This collection of hostile savagery is ruthlessly precise” Terrorizer Magazine (Dec 2015)
“Instantly gripping….. this is one of the most brutal assaults to the senses that I’ve heard this year” Powerplay Magazine (Oct 2015)
The new album 'Peace In Our Time' is out now via PHD.
Born in 2012 out of a chance meeting between friends, and informed by a shared love of Death Metal's intricate fury and Black Metal's occult grandeur, the band have quickly risen through the ranks of the UK's burgeoning underground Extreme Metal scene. 2014 saw them release their debut EP, 'Initiation', and embark on a nationwide tour in support of French alchemists SVART CROWN and Swedish maestros DIABOLICAL.
Currently hard art work putting the final touches on their eagerly-anticipated first full-length release, ASCARIS' goals for 2017 and onward are simple; to spread their vision far and wide, and to convert more eager souls to their cause.
“Raging drumming, maniacal riffs and a venomous vocal display, and within the melee find
time to include some malicious melodies too”
-UK Extreme Metal
“Highly animated, fast, powerful… Seriously impressive”
Formed in late 2016, Ashen Crown are a Midlands based Metal band whose hybrid style draws influence from many of Metals sub-genres. Most notable bands that influence their sound are; Bolt Thrower, At the Gates, Benediction, Pantera, Sylosis, Gojira, Slayer, Death, Lamb of God, Mastodon and Hypocrisy.
With a Strong set of material, the band took to stage for their successful live debut early March 2017. Two weeks later the band began their Wolverhampton Metal to the Masses campaign, progressing to and winning the Grand- Final in late May 2017 on their 4th live show. Ashen Crown are now looking to capitalise on the M2tM victory and a hugely successful appearance at Bloodstock Festival, reach further away from the Midlands expand their already rapidly growing fan base and solidify a respected place among their peers in the metal community.
Alongside the live shows, Ashen Crown have released a number of self-produced demos to give audiences a taste of things to come. These have been well received and have already earned Radio / Podcast play across the UK, Europe and in the US. The band are due to release their first studio single and music video very soon, while working on their debut EP which is hoping for a release late 2017 / early 2018.
With winning M2tM, destroying a full New Blood Stage at Bloodstock, more exciting live shows (support slot with Memoriam and HRH Metal Meltdown) lined up, music videos and a full studio EP in the works, 2017 has so far been an amazing first year for Ashen Crown.
Bands start at 8pm
