Ashes Within plays brutal, honest music. We do not try to emulate a style, or fit into any particular arcane sub-genre of the metal scene. Our songs are crafted for maximum visceral impact, whether it be simple or complex, harmonious or discordant. This music is our collectively distilled response to both personal and global events. Things aren’t pretty out there, and they’re degenerating daily. We feel like the music we’re writing is perhaps the only rational response to the things going on around us. The world is gut-wrenchingly harsh and ugly much of the time. Our music stands as a rejoinder to that ugliness.
