Genre/Influences: Dark-electro & metal.

Content: Dawn Of Ashes is back with a new piece of terror music. Dawn Of Ashes is one of the few bands I know mixing elements of dark-electro together with metal. The albums have been always quite disturbing and “Anathema” sounds in the same vein.

The intro “Anathema – Part 1 Scorned Upon” is a spicy teaser for the kind of terror-music you’ll be invited to hear. There’s a little touch of Skinny Puppy running through this song, but which is not that representative for what’s coming up. “A Breathing Holocaust” sounds like an invitation to explore the most horrible and unimaginable corners of our mind. It is as if we’re entering the mind of a psychopath committing his murderous acts with the simple strength of music! The oversaturated distortion effect is fitting the state of terror created by this band.

I can easily speak about disturbing electronics and the epic guitar parts only empower the global state of angst. “Ending A Harrowing Wish” is a brilliant illustration of the cold sweat sensation this album disengages. The final part moves towards a pure climax featuring essential and yet terrific pieces. “Systhematic Guillotine” doesn’t exactly sound as a friendly title to surprise you girlfriend on Valentine. Dawn Of Ashes already shows us the most perverted and sick parts of human being while this song is quite Skinny Puppy-minded as well.

From a pure artistic and stylish point of view the absolute masterpiece is “Scars On Scars”. This song is characterized by sublime and refined arrangements. It simply is fascinating to notice such little details on a song that again invites the listener into a heavy terror outburst.

Conclusion: Dawn Of Ashes is not the most accessible band in the genre, but definitely a band with a unique approach and sound identity. This new opus definitely sounds as their most accomplished and artistic work to date!

Best songs: “Scars On Scars”, “Torture Device”, “A Breathing Holocaust”, “Systhematic Guillotine”.

Rate: (DP:8/9)DP.
