History

They first began in 2001 in Los Angeles, California by playing the genres of Harsh EBM/Aggrotech, and in 2005 released a demo album Sacred Fever. Soon after its release they were signed to NoiTekk and then to COP International and Russia's Gravitator Records. Since then, they have made two full length albums, In the Acts of Violence and The Crypt Injection. They have also made a music video for their song "Torture Device", the first single from The Crypt Injection, and for their song "Transformation Within Fictional Mutation" off their new album Genocide Chapters.

In May 2009, the band released a blog stating that they are moving more into the metal scene and away from the aggrotech scene. According to their MySpace page, it says, "With this new line up and sound, the next installment from Dawn of Ashes will summon new sights and sounds among the world with a 'black/melodic death metal' sound."

In 2010, they released their third album, Genocide Chapters, through Metal Blade Records. It features 11 completely new tracks with their new melodic black metal sound.

Dawn of Ashes have finished touring North America on the Darkness Reborn Tour to support Genocide Chapters with Dimmu Borgir, Enslaved and Blood Red Throne.

In 2011 the band announced that they will re-record two Songs from their Previous aggrotech releases, In The Acts of Violence and The Crypt Injection, and will let the fans decide which two tracks should be re-recorded.

In March 2012 the band announced that Othuum and Volkar Kael have left Dawn of Ashes, stating that they no longer felt or shared in the same vision or views as the other half of Dawn Of Ashes. Volkar and Othuum also formed a new band called ALAL. Kristof Bathory has now taken Dawn of Ashes as his solo project to bring back elements of the older industrial sound.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    We are told that men protect us; that they are generous, even chivalric in their protection. Gentlemen, if your protectors were women, and they took all your property and your children, and paid you half as much for your work, though as well or better done than your own, would you think much of the chivalry which permitted you to sit in street-cars and picked up your pocket- handkerchief?
    Mary B. Clay, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 3, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902)

    Boys forget what their country means by just reading “the land of the free” in history books. Then they get to be men, they forget even more. Liberty’s too precious a thing to be buried in books.
    Sidney Buchman (1902–1975)

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)
