Christmas is coming early for fans of Ashen Horde. The reason is that the EP Tintregen is coming December 15th. The band comments on the upcoming EP: «Tintregen is an EP that explores the theme of torment. While not connected by a story as has been the case on previous Ashen Horde releases, each song examines the subject in a different way. From nightmares and invasive parasites to imprisonment and the loss of a loved one, Tintregen focuses on how we react when thrust into agonizing situations».
Musically, the EP continues Ashen Horde’s blending of various extreme metal genres, incorporating elements of death, black, thrash and grind, among others. Ashen Horve strives to embrace a multitude of extreme metal subgenres, without being bound to any of them. No You Tube video from the new EP, therfore we give you Retaliation/Regret from Fallen Cathedrals released earlier this year.
The band aims to challenge listeners, but not ostracize them. Ashen Horde from Hollywood are probably for fans of old Opeth, Enslaved, Devin Townsend. The band drawing influence from the crème de la extreme, and celebrates the darker side of metal in all its grim glory. It’s technical and crushing, yet at times darkly melodic. Ashen Horde is a duo consisting of Trevor Portz and Stevie Boiser (Inferi, Equipoise).
