Australian death metal heavyweights ASHEN share brand new lyric video for “Gravemind”!

Perth, Australia based death metallers Ashen are gearing up for the release of the band’s highly anticipated new album “Ritual of Ash”, which will be coming out on January 13th via Bitter Loss Records. While the first single “Ritual” already gave an intense insight into the upcoming album, the band follows up today with a brand new lyric video for the track “Gravemind”. 

Ashen comments:

‘Gravemind’ is a sacrificial call of destruction, the evisceration of hope bought on by stomping riffs and slicing lyrics. Beware the affliction..Gravemind!

“Ritual of Ash” is the follow-up to 2021’s 5-track mini LP “Godless Oath” and features 10 tracks of brutal & relentless HM2 death metal. Expanding on the sound developed over the first release, the band’s upcoming full-length record is darker, heavier and more sinister whilst retaining the distinct Ashen sound. Ashen have put together an album of immense detail. From the music itself to the visual presentation, no detail has been spared. This will surely be the new benchmark in the Australian underground!

“Ritual of Ash” was mixed and mastered by Marko Tervonen (The Crown) at Studio-MT in Trollhättan, Sweden. The stunning album artwork was designed by Remedy Art Design. The album is available for pre-order at THIS LOCATION
