Here's what press has been saying about DAWN OF ASHES' forthcoming album GENOCIDE CHAPTERS so far:
"DAWN OF ASHES —a horror metal group complete with flesh-eaten faces—are 100 percent melodic death metal. And what works for this band (unlike so many of their counterparts) is that the songs here aren't built around the strengths of any one member. Vocals aren't over-the-top, solos aren't soul-sucking and the drummer doesn't go nuts on the China cymbal during breakdowns… the ability to play CHAPTERS over and over and not get sick of it shows that this band is doing a lot right." Decibel Magazine

"Opening in a blaze of anarchic mayhem, 'Conjugation of the Maskim's Black Blood' sets the benchmark, which continues with the black metal 'The Ancient Draining Room'… With lyrics dealing with all manners of evil, vocalist Kristof Bathory will scare the crap out of you with his delivery. It's definitely an album worth listening to though, just maybe not before bed." Powerplay Magazine (UK)

"A Haunting, Evil Masterwork… DAWN OF ASHES sounds like melodic/symphonic black metal veterans on GENOCIDE CHAPTERS. The band pulls off this sound with ease, constantly amazing the listener as they embark on a dark and nightmarish journey." 4/5,

"If you ever have a craving for a dosage of evil, GENOCIDE CHAPTERS is one of the best places to turn… It never gets repetitive or boring, while still maintaining a worthwhile playtime. It also doesn't hurt that GENOCIDE CHAPTERS is an extremely diverse album in terms of tempo, arrangements, and general moods… They really hit the nail on the head with this release, and I have to applaud them for taking a big risk, and more importantly, succeeding tremendously." 4/5,

"A crucial component to DAWN OF ASHES' impressive third outing is the overarching atmosphere that permeates the material on display. Throughout most of the long-player, tracks are interwoven with spine-chilling segues ranging from a soft downpour to muffled screams to droning feedback. These brief moments of transition mesh perfectly with the keyboards that awash every composition, conceiving that sinister and frightening aura of which is vitally important to the subconscious impact of such a record… Music enthusiasts of the world, give DAWN OF ASHES' latest release GENOCIDE CHAPTERS a genuine listen and more importantly, a chance."
