April 5, 2013, a year ago
Following on from the recent success of Inheritance, the latest release from Italian progressive metal outfit ASHENT, Lion Music are offering up a timely reissue of the bands long out of print 2006 debut album, Flaws Of Elation, due on April 19th. In addition this new print comes with all new artwork and the additional bonus of the bands very first ultra rare 2003 4-track demo.
Flaws Of Elation is a prog-power experience with some modern techno-thrash influences which are reflected in the way Ashent arrange and play guitars and drums. There are also some death metal references, in the mode the band use growling as backing vocals that have their importance in the economy of Ashent’s sound, wisely mixed with a modern prog attitude that uses avant-garde and gothic elements in order to create intense and dramatic music. The atmosphere is very dark, but the vocals of American vocalist Steve Braun are extremely melodic, supported by some beautiful orchestrations.
