Asheran is a 60 minute tapestry of music, an epic narrative following the tale of the rise and fall of civilisations, the return of an empire thought millennia lost, and the world-spanning events that unfold as a consequence.
Rich with themes of science fiction, environmental issues, and both dystopic and utopic visions for the future of humanity, listeners can expect the album to bring the pure heaviness vaunted during Aurora
Majesty, whilst at the same time being tempered by the combination of more mature progressive, genre-spanning, and often at times melodic song-writing the band are quickly making their hallmark approach.
Recorded at Chamber Studios in Edinburgh, and again mixed and mastered by Tom Dring of Vagrant Recordings (who has worked on both past releases by the band, as well as acclaimed releases by
Dragged Into Sunlight, and Venom Prison), the 2 Disc Vinyl Edition of the record will be released through Wasted State records on the 28th of July.
