fixtbusinesscard_2012_PRFRONT

(Hollywood, California) – Controversial shock-rock masters Dawn of Ashes released their newest contribution to visceral horror with the video Poisoning the Steps of Babel, available for exclusive premier at the only acceptable home for such vicious barbarity, Bloody Disgusting. Directed by Chris Trueman and featuring such  blasphemous imagery as a bloodied Kristof Bathory preaching to a mad congregation of hedonistic misfits, the torture-murder of a pair of nuns by a masked beast, and confessional vituperation of a small child by fellow industrial shocker Nero Bellum of Psyclon Nine, Poisoning the Steps of Babel is nothing short of a malicious attack on all levels.

Check out Bloody Disgusting’s Exclusive Premier of Dawn of Ashes Poisoning the Steps of Babel video featuring Nero Bellum of Psycon Nine.

Kristof BathoryThroughout our 12 year history, Dawn of Ashes strives to step up our shocking nature through the music and the imagery that we release to our fans. To us our music videos have always been the most crucial element when revealing to the world the dark and twisted tones associated with the Dawn of Ashes name. I feel that the release of the Poisoning the Steps of Babel music video has really shown maturity within us. This video truly exploits how Dawn of Ashes continuously strikes the nerves of censorship while giving holy, organized religions a good slap in the face. Be prepared for the true values of shock; this video holds no remorse. The music industry needs a good taste of a pure derogatory form of evil” – Kristof Bathory

About Dawn Of Ashes:

In the darkest form of incubated evil, a symbol has been born to strike immense shock and fear into the hearts of mortal weakness. Kristof Bathory is the icon which has made a new era where nightmares become reality and where the sounds of the macabre shall emerge from a catastrophic symphony. Dawn of Ashes has resurrected the sounds and visions of horror, hatred, sexual perversion and other shocking content that is spewed forth in the form of Industrial metal / Shock Rock which was created to reflect upon the birth of death, impurity and failure. Now the plague has come to corrupt the flesh of man.

Dawn of Ashes has been an established act that has been on various record labels throughout the years. Since 2001, Dawn of Ashes started off as a Horror-Industrial act and as the years progressed so did the sound. DOA has always had a strong influence from Metal, Rock, & other aggressive forms of music which made the band stand out. Now, the group has incorporated elements from Metal, Rock, & Industrial with a new twist of evil.

Welcome to this breathing vision of Hell.

DARK SERMON Album Now Available

Logo: Nuclear Blast Records

Take the best, forget that rest: that’s the ethos behind Dark Sermon, whose musical outpouring conjures the fist-raising melody of European death metal, the blackened underbelly of bleak blast-beating musical warfare, the churning malevolence of technical
death metal and the uniquely down-to-earth flair of the NWOAHM and combines it all into something fresh and potent.

SHAI HULUD, THY WILL BE DONE Tour Underway

 

Shai Hulud recently returned from their performances in Australia as part of the Soundwave Festival, but they got back in the van and headed out on tour in North America with Thy Will Be Done. The tour includes support from up-and-coming acts Altars, and Beyond the Shore. After this tour wraps up on April 7, Shai Hulud will board their flights for Europe for their tour with Propagandhi. Shai Hulud’s entire confirmed list of dates can be found on the TOUR DATES page.

Guitarist and found member Matt Fox reflects on the band’s year thus far:

“2013, what a year… Thus far, we’ve shared new music with our friends and supporters who encourage us and keep us alive. We were fortunate enough to have just returned from the Soundwave festival in Australia where we made new friends, and saw the bands whose albums are the primary reasons we play the music we do (Thank you Master Of Puppets, Reign In Blood, Among The Living, and Blood, Sweat, And No Tears). We soon leave for Europe with Propagandhi, another one of our favorite bands, and what’s more… in just two days we share the stage with some of the best friends we have ever made in our years of touring, Thy Will Be Done. Joining us on this jaunt are our soon to be friends, Altars, and Beyond The Shore. This is a lot of love and appreciation for a band of self-proclaimed pure misanthropists constantly talking about their ‘Profound Hatred Of Man.’ Who knew…

We’re happy to contradict ourselves in this fashion.

Come share the love.

Profoundly hating,”
Shai Hulud

Shai Hulud has always had a reputation for penning thought-provoking and deeply meaningful lyrics. Their latest effort, Reach Beyond the Sun, is no exception. To further communicate the those lyrics, the band has posted a lyric video for one of their favorite tracks, A Human Failing, on metalblade.com/shaihulud.

“It is absolutely remarkable what Shai Hulud have done on Reach Beyond The Sun. Not only have they reaffirmed their place as hardcore royalty, they have released what could arguably be considered the best album of their career and the best album the genre has seen in years” – SputnikMusic.com

“a cathartic, anthemic return to strength and a testament to never forgetting your roots” – Terrorizer Magazine

“there’s no questioning Shai Hulud’s intensity” – Metal Hammer Magazine

“a renewed sense of frantic, guttural aggression – that makes Reach feel fresh in spite of the scene that’s changed so radically around it” – The Onion AV Club
