Los Angeles, CA-based DAWN OF ASHES – whose very name brings to mind “the beginning of the end” – has broken ground across multiple genres, from aggrotech/terror EBM to Industrial, Metal, producing a unique hybrid of dark electro and industrial-metal styles since 2001.
This fusion of terrifying soundscapes with brutal, relentless rhythms forms the foundation for the lyrical themes of founder/frontman Kristof Bathory – exploring concepts of horror, perversion, while standing in bold opposition towards the downfall of society.
