It was announced last month that Marinus Terblanche had decided to leave Adorned In Ash and move on for personal and career options.

Adorned in Ash are proud and honored to announce their new bassist. His previous projects have been of great inspiration to AiA and we are incredibly excited to have him as part of the family. We welcome Colin Deacon (former Golgotha vocalist/bassist) into the fold and wish him many more fruitful and blessed years on and off stage.

A bit about Deacs:

“Deacs’ passion for music has taken him on a journey of thrills and spills from the growling death metal days as vocalist/bassist in “Golgotha”, to the crazy antics of the front man for rock outfit “The Carpet Crawlers”. His passion for performance and love of music has had him connect with many an audience and he is often remembered for hanging from ceilings, screaming through a microphone, climbing on top of high speaker towers and stage trucks, smashing guitars, trashing stages. A musical journey filled with highs and lows, from sleeping on floors and couches, playing to sold out crowds and to empty houses, packing gear to the roof of every car he has ever owned. All in the name and love of Rock n’ Roll.” Continue reading »

Female fronted hybrid metal band Adorned In Ash has checked in with the following announcement:

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we bid farewell to one of the best bassists in SA metal…Marinus Terblanche! Marinus has decided to move on for personal and career options. He remains like family to us in the band and will be sorely missed both as a musician and a brother! He played close to 100 gigs and Thursday’s show at Rumours will probably be his last. In light of this news,”

“Adorned in Ash will be seeking to replace these immense shoes. Please contact us personally or on this page or mail to info@adornedinash.com if you are interested in playing bass. We ask that only committed, skilled people who understand the reasons why we play in this band should apply”. Continue reading »
