DAWN OF ASHES - INTERVIEW

Dawn of Ashes Interviews

We have been given the opportunity to conduct a Q&A with an American Extreme Metal band Dawn of Ashes which was formed in 2002 in Los Angeles, California.

The bands style consists of horror-based and visual themes presented through industrial and melodic black metal structures - source

 

- Q&A with Dawn of Ashes -

RLUK -

First we would like to start off talking about your latest tour “The Crypt Injection II 2019 Tour”

What is the new album about?

What inspired you to record this album?

Dawn of Ashes -

The Crypt Injection 2 is a sequel to our 2nd album that was released in 2007 when we were a pure Industrial act. Dawn of Ashes has been exploring various avenues from Metal to Industrial.

I wanted to make an album that please our older but also still attracts our newer fans. Throughout the years; not only has the music evolved but so has the lyrical content which is based on a lot of my work in the Left Hand Path. Dawn of Ashes started off as a Horror Industrial act based on terrifying content / violent content.

Now the theme has evolved into something much more meaningful,

RLUK -

Are you looking forward to playing alongside Die Sektor and Midnight Nightmare?

And how did you come to choose these bands as your supporting acts?

Dawn of Ashes -

The tour should be great, since this is our first time performing the new material off TCI2. I personally chose Die Sektor because I felt that they were a fit for this tour and because they are personal friends.

Midnight Nightmare jumped on this tour just a few weeks ago as an opening act. Overall, I think it will go smoothly.

RLUK -

By a quick read & listen we can see that your sound has changed quite a lot throughout the years. On your website you’ve stated that your latest album is returning to the bands routes hence being named “The Crypt Injection II”.

 

What made you want to return to your original sound?

I wouldn't say that we 100% went back to our original sound because we still incorporate Metal into our sound. I feel like we just pulled in the original sound into what we have been doing.

RLUK -

Should we be expecting any more releases this year?

Dawn of Ashes -

As far as a new release this year. Probably not, but I am working on new material.

RLUK -

Next we would like to ask a few questions about the band itself.

How did Dawn of Ashes come to form?

Dawn of Ashes -

I created Dawn of Ashes back in 2001. I originally wanted to do a pure Industrial Black Metal act but ended up doing something else based on not having solid people to work with. The name was reflected on an apocalyptic theme based on my misanthropic view on humanity.

RLUK -

What inspires you to create the music you release?

Dawn of Ashes -

There is a lot that I am inspired on and like I said previously that it evolved throughout the years.

RLUK -

The Dream

What is the dream for Dawn of Ashes?

Dawn of Ashes -

Working in the music industry is a consistent dream that you keep climbing so that's a very hard question to answer.

RLUK -

What artists would you like to collaborate with?

Dawn of Ashes -

Nine inch Nails is probably the number one artist I would like to work with. I have worked with Chris Vrenna many times so that is very close to NIN but working with Trent is a dream.

RLUK -

Now, in every interview we like to ask some “silly” questions to keep it interesting.

What is your favorite 90’s jam?

Dawn of Ashes -

Favorite 90s jam is the downward spiral album by NIN.

- End of Q&A -

We would like to thank Dawn of Ashes for answering our questions for our monthly Q&A :)
