On January 20th, 2023 internationally, PERSONAL RECORDS is proud to present ASHEN TOMB's striking debut EP, self-titled Ashen Tomb, on transparent CD.
"Born from a rotten womb, scorned through life, until laid down in ashen tomb..."
Formed in 2021, ASHEN TOMB are a Finnish death metal band hailing from Helsinki. No more but definitely no less, ASHEN TOMB proudly play straight-up DEATH METAL with influences from such legends as Autopsy, Incantation, and Finland's Abhorrence. They do not aim to re-invent the wheel; rather, ASHEN TOMB lean on the pillars of death metal set back in the tape-trading era. Nevertheless, there's an eerie air of the melancholy to their crush, as their self-titled debut EP vividly displays: across its three songs in 14 minutes, ASHEN TOMB already sound like seasoned masters of the authentically OLD.
With wild live shows already performed and more to commence, ASHEN TOMB begin turning the wheel with Ashen Tomb.
Slow, dark and gloomy as if giant mold ate the Earth alive. Great sound, great arrangements, great muscianship. The right amount of everything in every aspect. To my ears in this genre surprisingly colorful record. Great band deserving our attention! yesfan2
