Wormholedeath is proud to announce the signing of Austrian Melodic Death Metal band Ashes Of Moon. Their album “The darkness where The Past Lay Sleeping” will be released during this winter.
About the band:
Ashes Of Moon was founded by bassist and vocalist Matthias Fibrich and guitarist Michael Sägmüller in winter 2009 at their home town Bruck an der Mur, located at Upper Styria, Austria. The two musicians had been working on another music project till they decided to form their own band. The line-up was completed by two friends and former bandmates of Matthias, Dominique Studer on drums and Christoph Ajd as lead guitarist. First named “Tracked Grader”, the band recorded its first demo tape called “Course Of Truth” in 2010. Shortly afterwards they started to work on new material for the self-produced debut album “Ashes Of Moon”, which could only be released in fall 2012 due several intern delays (e.g. line-up-changes while recording). In June and October 2012, Mario “Luis” Scheiber and Helmut Winter, both members of “Hellsaw”, one of Austria’s leading black metal bands, joined Ashes Of Moon to replace Christoph Ajd and Dominique Studer. Inspired by new influences and willing to expand the own style, the new formation started to work on new songs at the beginning of 2013. In winter 2013/14, Ashes Of Moon got signed by the Italian record label “WormHoleDeath” (part of the Aural Music Group) and recorded the album “The Darkness Where The Past Lay Sleeping”.
About the music:
A contrast between hard riffs, aggressive growling and screaming vocals on the one side and catchy melodies, clean and acoustic guitar parts, mixed with prog and post rock elements on the other side, was created. The lyrics mostly deal with sorrowful feelings, love death and various emotions, often described by nature-related metaphors and tales. The band itself would describe its style as some kind of post melodic death metal.
The band stated:
“After years of desperate search for a record deal, Austrain metal band Ashes Of Moon finally got signed by Wormholedeath! Due great cooperation and support, first studio album “The Darkness Where The Past Lay Sleeping” will soon be released via Wormholedeath/Aural Music! The band itself is very proud to present 9 great tracks as result of hard work and endurance. Special thank goes to Carlo Bellotti for believing in Ashes Of Moon and giving us the chance to produce this record. The album was recorded at RealSound Studio in February 2014, mixed by Michael Zech (the Source Studio) in May and mastered by Thomas Taube in June 2014. “

Worm stated: “Since we all wanted it to be perfect, this album’s creation has been one of the longest processes we have ever supervised . Ashes Of Moon have a big and quite sophisticated artistic sensibility and we knew that we had to support them in the right way, with the right manners. working with the guys, day by day, without rushing and giving them the support they needed led us to one of the biggest results we could imagine: an album that we absolutely love for it’s charm and emotional vibe. we are seriously proud to introduce you all this project since we, here at wormholedeath, truly believe that these musicians have a lot to say specially when it comes to emtions. Now it’s your turn, just check them out and support the band … they will lead you to dreams.”
Italian Alternative Rock band Ashes To Ashes are finally back in studio to record their second album with producer Jonathan Mazzeo. The sophomore release is being produced at Mathlab Recording Studios in Montale (Italy) and will feature 10 brand new songs written by the band during the last year.
The recordings, final stage of a long songwriting and pre-production process, started on monday the 8th and will take place for the whole month of september. Wormholedeath is producing the album together with the band and Mathlab Recording Studio to support a bigger project wich includes already the possibility of releasing the record on a larger scale with a bigger label/distribution.
The final goal is to reach a new level for both sound and arrangements since these new tracks are way more emotional and strong than Ata’s previous materials, thanx to a more focused and inspired concept and idea behind the band’s music.
