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
Slaves is my favorite song, although Crosses comes at such a close second... this LP and acts of worship I both need to own in some sort of physical copy one day, they're so good at expressing emotions I didn't even know I felt... yona
This album should be ranked very high in ranks of latest industrial albums, because it just crushes the competition. THIS is how it's done people. Menacing vocals, pounding drums and haunting electronics have no mercy on your ears and leave you with not one second of peace. Play this loud and do people around you a service.
