Jan. 24 — Independent industrial metal band Dawn of Ashes premiered its latest single this month.
The band debuted its new single, ‘EMDR’ Jan. 14. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album, Scars of the Broken, which is scheduled for release March 18 through Artoffact Records. The single is available to stream and download through YouTube, Spotify and Bandcamp.
Front man Kristof Bathjory said the band’s new album is a personal presentation.
“Scars Of the Broken has been one of the most emotionally difficult albums that I have ever created,” he said. “All of the musical and lyrical content was straight from a place that I have been dealing with for a long time of my life. I poured out every darkest and deepest emotion into every song. Mental health is something that a lot of people struggle with and sometimes it just needs to be heard through music. I hope this album helps those that are struggling.”
The musical arrangement featured in ‘EMDR’ is everything that fans of the industrial metal genre expect. The use of the keyboards, modulated vocals, heavy, intense drums and guitars, and even electronics are all there. The combination of the elements shows influence from the likes of Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, Dope, and other similar acts of their ilk.
Said Bathory of the song’s lyrical theme, “This song was inspired from my own personal experience dealing with a type of therapy called EMDR which stands for ‘ Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing’. This specific type of hypnotic therapy is for helping people who have dealt with past traumatic experiences.”
