[ If you still haven't grabbed the new Dawn Of Ashes (Official) album, then go to the Metropolis Records website, ITunes, Amazon or any local record shop to purchase it. ]
Kristof Bathory has been creating music under the name Dawn of Ashes since 2001. Starting off as a Horror-Industrial act, the sound of DOA has evolved over the years, embracing elements of metal, rock, industrial, and other forms of aggressive music. The new album, entitled Anathema, combines visions of horror, hatred, sexual perversion and other shocking content, spewed forth in the form of a unique blend of Industrial-metal & shock-rock. Featuring guest appearances by Nero Bellum of Psyclon Nine and Gary Zon of Dismantled, Anathema is a catastrophic symphony that stands as a new twist on evil. Kristof Bathory welcomes us to this breathing vision of Hell.

[ Here is a new review of "Anathema" from the website "Metal as fuck" ]
"Tantalizing with horrific sexual delights, Kristof Bathory drags you in, straps you down and sacrifices your psyche to a realm where nightmares become reality and brutality becomes a certainty. Dawn of Ashes has resurrected the sounds and visions of horror, hatred, sexual perversion and other shocking content that is spewed forth in the form of Industrial metal."
We never once believed when we set up this fundraiser that we would meet our original goal so quickly. And so, with another 39 days still to go, we've put together a couple of stretch goals.
These are for things we didn't think we'd be able to do when we set out with this album, and especially without a label. With your help, these dreams may become a reality. If you'd like to see these happen, then keep on sharing and reminding people that this is happening! We'd love to be able to do both of these things.
If the total reaches $3000, then we will release a single off the album: on VINYL! These would be special collectors' items and severely limited, numbered and signed.
If the total reaches $8000 we will also put together a brand new music video, joining our forces once again with SOLOBUIO VISUAL FACTORY, the videomakers behind our 2008's video The Art Of Revenge and the ones responsible for a lot of great videos in the past years, among them Dope Stars Inc., Nachtmahr, Rome, L'ame Immortelle, Spiritual Front, Ordo Rosarious Equilibrio and countless others.
Another huge thanks to everyone that's supported this release so far.
The fundraiser was successful in 18 hours, more or less. We are now already $50 over the goal.
Due to the nature of these crowdfunding websites, we cannot stop the process and we need to let it run for the whole 40 days we originally planned, ending on June 16th.
This means two things: first of all, we can stick to our original plan and release the album on Bandcamp, iTunes and the other digital distribution networks on June 1st.
All of you who supported us and bought one of the perks including the immediate digital download of the album, will receive it in the mail between June 1st - June 4th.
This also mean that in the even we keep on receiving donations and support we'll be able to put the extra money towards funding a new video: it's been a while we wanted to do another full scale music video like we did back in 2008 for The Art Of Revenge, so maybe this is the right moment for it.
Some of you messaged us yesterday regarding trying to work towards a vinyl release: we are definitely looking into that as well.
With 39 days left, it really feels like the sky is the limit! If you want to keep on supporting the fundraiser, here's the link: http://igg.me/at/xp8/x/398211
Once again, THANK YOU ALL! and special thanks to Gerry and Jade of Hope Estheim for getting one of the two "SONG" perks: looks like there's a nice collaboration on the horizon!
it's not been an easy decision for us for various reasons, but in the end we decided to give it a try: here's the crowdfunding campaign to bring "Adrenochrome" to its full glory as a limited, deluxe digipack.
the fundraiser will run for 40 days, and we hope you'll join us and help us making this happen!
for those who are wondering: if, as it seems, we’ll hit our goal way sooner than the 40 days this campaign will run, we’ll update our goals and put all the extra money towards the recording of one (or two, maybe) new videos.
everything extra is going back to fund the band’s activities!
