Ashen Horde is a Los Angeles-based, progressive black-metal band that celebrates the darker side of extreme music in all its grim glory. Inspired by bands like Enslaved, Borknagar, Ihsahn and Strapping Young Lad, Ashen Horde creates technical, crushing soundscapes that give way to darkly melodic passages of repose.
The band’s first release for Skull Fracture Records is the two-track EP, “Black Curse,” inspired by the short story, TO MEGA THERION, by author Markisan Naso.
Arctic Sleep is one of the many projects brought to you by Milwaukee-based, multi-instrumentalist and producer Keith D. Incorporating elements of doom and progressive metal, Arctic Sleep’s songs are driven by a unique combination of massively atmospheric heaviness, slow tempos, and bittersweet melodies that tug at the heartstrings.
The band’s first release for Skull Fracture Records is the two-track soundtrack EP, “BY THE HORNS,” inspired by the Scout Comics series of the same name.
