Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, old school-style death metal band ASHEN have slayed in the deathly realms of the metal world since 2019, gracing our ears just a couple of months back with their debut EP, “Godless Oath”. These sonic savages aren’t entirely new to the scene, in fact, they’ve all been playing in bands together, in various forms, for over a decade in the likes of VESPERS DESCENT, BURIAL GROUND and WATERCOLOUR GHOSTS.
Clearly inspired by the sound of classic death metal soundscapes, ASHEN impress with five strapping tracks, unapologetically delivering incessant blows and bloody bludgeoning of burly, brutal proportions. The nod to their old school forefathers can be felt, with the bygone flavour of the likes of OBITUARY, DISMEMBER and BLOODBATH coursing through with visceral appeal.
Title-track, “Godless Oath”, is a seething opener for the EP, brooding as a mid-tempo cut, with a minacious aspect of lulled, shrouded bass lines, penetrating with simple, but overpowering, aggressive structure. The temporal shift to add a few flecks of grooves gives a BOLT THROWER meets BLOODBATH appeal, the gritty riffs hook in hard and the commanding growls rip through your core and blast you apart. It’s safe to say that the opener gets your attention, like a rocket up your jacksy, pretty damn quick.
