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, Obituary, 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. Whilst moving forward with a steady momentum, Ashen Crown laid waste to a packed out New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Festival 2017. A hugely successful major festival debut for such a young band, cementing them in the ranks of Bloodstock Alumni with rave reviews.
Gaining a reputation for an aggressive, energetic live show and earning respect from peers and promoters, the band have since gone on to support the likes of King Parrot, Memoriam and Obituary with huge success. This has no doubt helped secure slots on festivals such as Amplified, Manor Fest and HRH Metal Meltdown, with more amazing shows in the pipeline.
Alongside the live shows, Ashen Crown signed up with Enso Music Management late 2017, which is helping push them on to greater things within the metal community. They have also begun working on their debut EP (due for release June 2018) and released their debut single / video March 2018. Their previous demo releases have already been well received and earned Radio / Podcast play across the UK, Europe and USA.
Momentum is building and 2018 is looking very, very promising for Ashen Crown.
