Dawn Of Ashes are a band from Los Angeles, California that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of industrial, ebm and black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "The Antinominion" which will be released in July by Artofact Records.
An ebm style sound starts off the album along with a great amount of programmed beats along with the vocals being mostly distorted black metal screams. The music also mixes in a lot of industrial elements along with the music also capture a very ritualistic atmosphere in some parts of the recording.
Spoken word parts are also added into some parts of the tracks while the music also incorporates a great amount of samples. Heavy guitar riffs are also mixed in with the more dark electro style of the album giving the music more of an extreme metal heaviness along with some electronic drums, a couple of the tracks are also long and epic in length as well as one song also introducing growls onto the album and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo style.
On this recording Dawn Of Ashes goes into more of an ebm and industrial rock/metal direction as well as keeping the black metal style vocals. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics explore humanities downfall as it blindly follows it's leaders.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Dawn Of Ashes and f you are a fan of ebm, industrial and black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pawns Of The Wretched" "Blood Of The Titans" "Follow The Pain" and "The War Within". 8 out of 10.
