Every nightmare is painted by a vision that is so terrifying and disturbing that only the imagination of pure violence can give a new form to eternal damnation. Dawn Of Ashes gave meaning to this in the year of 2001 by Kristof Bathory, the mastermind behind the sounds and visions of horror, hatred, and suffering. The name was created to reflect upon the birth of death and failure.
In 2005, DOA independently released their first demo entitled 'Sacred Fever'. This release caught the eyes and ears of the German label NoiTekk and shortly after DOA were asked to sign to the label. A few months later, the U.S. label COP International, as well as Russian label Gravitor, took notice to DOA and asked them to join their rosters them as well.
In September of 2006, their debut album entitled 'In the Acts of Violence' was unleashed upon the world. The brutal debut captivated the dark hearts and minds of many. It was at this point that DOA began to grow a significant fan base, which set the band on its path to success.
In October of 2007, DOA released their second full length album entitled 'The Crypt Injection'. The album displayed much growth and transformation in DOA's dark sound and substance. Along with the studio album, DOA also created a music video for their song "Torture Device", which set much anticipation for the album's long awaited release. 'The Crypt Injection' aided in DOA gathering more fans, publicity, and attention from the masses.
Since DOA was formed, the band has made transitions in line-ups and sound to create their ideal artistic outlet. DOA did so by adding additional members and placing the element of live guitars and drums into the music, taking the group from the Industrial scene into the Metal scene. With DOA's new, solid line-up, the next installment from DOA will summon new sights and sounds among the world with a Black/Melodic Death Metal sound. It is now time for Dawn Of Ashes to enhance the brutality, so be prepared for more to come as the ashes will never rest upon the weak; the evil within this group will never die!
