We are very excited to present you the debut album "Razors Edge" of our latest signing ASHES'N'ANDROID!

"Razors Edge" is not an album that remains superficial. It goes deep into the soul, touches emotional subjects and topics of today's society. This album focuses on the most sensitive issues and tells its stories from another point of view.

With a retrospective character the songs are based on ideas and autobiographical input of producer Jörn. That’s how the album tells the story of its creator before the formation of ASHES’N’ANDROID. This might also be the reason for the wide range of genres from pop to EBM style.

A sound and feeling of real hardware instruments was an important part of this album, Razors Edge is full of analog bass and drums. The results are catchy melodies and beats that vary from stomping and hard to slow and intense. Sweeping pads, rich choirs and the driving basses complete the picture.

"Razors Edge" cannot be pigeonholed, it stands out and makes the listener curious for more to come.

Dear female fronted metal fans, it's going to be loud and bloody, the new FALLCIE album is coming!

Two years after the first album "Born Again", the Russian female fronted metal band FALLCIE followed up with their second long player "Bad Blood". Noisy and violent, one banger after another pounds out of the speakers on "Bad Blood". On 10 songs, FALLCIE take the listener on a dark journey between good and evil. Angry growls combined with crystal clear vocals by frontwoman Valentina meeting pounding double bass drums with driving and melodic guitar riffs.

FALLCIE stand for ruthless female fronted metal, in the spirit of acts like JINJER and INFECTED RAIN. After FALLCIE attracted attention in 2017 with their first single "Rock'n'Rolla", the five russian riots from Saint Petersburg moved around the world to bring their brute sound to the people. So FALLCIE were on tour with NILE and HATE ETERNAL, were support for SUMO CYCO and have already completed 5 headliner tours through Europe. For the new album "Bad Blood" FALLCIE are on Europe tour with VADER in March 2020.

"Bad Blood" will be released on March 6, 2020, so be quick and get you collector bundle with limited shirt and digibook now exclusively on our shop DARKMERCH:
