In 2014, South Africa’s Adorned in Ash released their debut album “The Dead Walk Among Us” and some of us took about a full year to finally hear of the album and be blown away by their brand of extreme hybrid metal that blends melodic death and black metal with prog and thrash elements. Featuring everything from great riffs and drumming to amazing vocals that shift fluidly between deep growls and almost shrieks, all with a sense of melody and structure, Adorned in Ash is a band to hear. We were able to catch up with them not long after their recent performance at Witchfest in South Africa, a first of its kind metal festival that featured bands ranging from Hatebreed to Epica to Cannibal Corpse and Decapitated. Learn more about the band below and go listen to them!
TMR: Just so people have some idea of who the band is, could each band member introduce themselves and include things like musical influences growing up and any other bands/projects they might be involved in. The big question, how would describe AIA to a metal fan that has never heard you?
