Ash Code is an Italian Dark Wave band that masterfully blends influences, ranging from early Depeche Mode, The Sisters of Mercy to post-punk, Synthpop, coldwave, & EBM. On the critically-acclaimed album Perspektive, Ash Code combines its influences & innovation to create driving, atmospheric Dark Wave devoted to the drum machine, powerful synthesizers & driving bass lines.
"For a band so heavy on atmospherics (and whose name hints at being smudged and indistinct), Ash Code come across as clear as day on their third LP, Perspektive. Partially that's a function of their often blunt and repeated lyrical declarations (Give me my life back, There's no mercy anymore). But it's also due to a canny sense for arrangement and production which delivers driving, full-impact post-punk instrumentation just as well as it does coldwave drama. The end result is as good a marker as any of how different sub-genres of dark music are intersecting in 2018." - Bruce Lord I Die: You Die
