Adorned in Ash release first single from their forthcoming sophomore album.
The Day The Sky Rolls Up has officially been released as the first single from the forthcoming album Apocalyptic Violence. The second album by South African extreme metal band Adorned in Ash has been five years in the making but is now finally complete and ready for release later in 2019. The first offering from the album is a perfect example to showcase all the elements fans have come to expect from this female fronted Christian heavy metal band. Aspects of death metal, black metal and progressive metal along with dark poetic lyrics are used to paint a vivid picture of a day the world ends. The sorrow and the triumph in a well balanced snapshot that sets the tone for the whole album. Though not a concept album, Apocalyptic Violence does maintain the theme of the end times through many of the songs in a brutal but often beautifully melodic way that is sure to get the heads banging and mosh pits moshing no matter what your spiritual conviction.
(As of yesterday 2018/12/13) Adorned in Ash is 10 years old!
This is no easy achievement in a scene where bands come and go and earning a living from it all but impossible!
I could probably write a book of the highs and lows…maybe I will one day.
From winning awards, playing the top local festivals and sharing stages with some of the world’s finest metal bands to receiving death threats, it’s all there mixed together in the pot.
But while we are ageing (very gracefully) we are not done. Next year we launch our new album and have some awesome news which we cannot yet share.
Thank you to every person who has been a part of the last decade.
