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.
This album is full of fantastic tracks and remixes. There is a lot to like, with heaviness coming from the electronic side as much or more than the guitar side. Loaded with great samples and enough tracks to warrant many repeat listenings to fully appreciate the awesomeness that went in to this album. PSYCHOHOLIC JOE
