Metal Blade signs Dawn Of Ashes
Official press release: Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce it has inked a deal with the Los Angeles horror inspired black/death metal band Dawn Of Ashes. Dawn Of Ashes is a band whose passion for intense and macabre imagery, music, and live performances will soon be seen by the metal masses when Genocide Chapters is unleashed in late spring/summer 2010. The band is currently gearing up to enter the studio to record their Metal Blade debut with producer Fred Archambault, known for his work with Avenged Sevenfold, Death By Stereo, Eighteen Visions, and many more. Handling the cover art for Genocide Chapters is Machine-Room (My Dying Bride). Dawn Of Ashes has enlisted the help of acclaimed special FX group ADI (Amalgamated Dynamics Inc.) to discuss plans for the new DOA outfits and mask designs. ADI is the special effects company that created the creatures and special effects for movies like: Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien vs. Predator 1 and Requiem, Star Ship Troopers, Tremors and other films. This was amazing news for the band and should make DOA's theatrical look even more interesting and grotesque. "We are very honored to become a part of such a legendary Metal label. We cannot wait to see what this will do for the progression of the band's career. This is a new level for Dawn Of Ashes and we are very excited to become part of the Metal Blade family" comments Dawn Of Ashes. "Dawn Of Ashes = DOA, BRUTAL, HORRIFIC, HYPNOTIC, VICIOUS Heavy Metal that is the soundtrack for the Apocalypse. With Tim Smith of Blood Company managing and Fred Archambault handling the recording duties, Metal Blade is ecstatic to be part of this team," comments Metal Blade's Michael Faley. www.myspace.com/dawnofashes
