Formed in late 2016, Ashen Crown are a Midlands based Metal band whose hybrid style draws influence from many of Metals sub-genres. Most notable bands that influence their sound are; Bolt Thrower, At the Gates, Benediction, Pantera, Sylosis, Gojira, Slayer, Death, Lamb of God, Mastodon and Hypocrisy.
With a Strong set of material, the band took to stage for their successful live debut early March 2017. Two weeks later the band began their Wolverhampton Metal to the Masses campaign, progressing to and winning the Grand- Final in late May 2017 on their 4th live show. Ashen Crown are now looking to capitalise on the M2tM victory and a hugely successful appearance at Bloodstock Festival, reach further away from the Midlands expand their already rapidly growing fan base and solidify a respected place among their peers in the metal commuinity.
Alongside the live shows , Ashen Crown have released a number of self-produced demos to give audiences a taste of things to come. These have been well received and have already earned Radio / Podcast play across the UK, Europe and in the US. The band are due to release their first studio single and music video very soon, while working on their debut EP which is hoping for a release late 2017 / early 2018.
With winning M2tM, destroying a full New Blood Stage at Bloodstock, more exciting live shows (support slot with Memoriam and HRH Metal Meltdown) lined up, music videos and a full studio EP in the works, 2017 has so far been an amazing first year for Ashen Crown.
