ZT PREMIERE: Brum DM crew Ashen Crown unveil new video for ‘Under The Leaves’

ZT is proud to deliver another UK exclusive in the form of Brum Death Metallers, Ashen Crown and the their new video ‘Under The Leaves’. This is the band’s third and final single from 2019 album Obsolescence. The album has received plenty of airplay with the debut single `Fall of Thine Eyes‘ released to great reception in March 2018.

Obsolescence was recorded with Neil Hudson of Krysthla throughout March and April 2019 at Initiate Audio and Media. The album was released in November 2019 with a lyric video for the second single `Blood Beneath Us`, which received rave reviews from both media and fans.

However, plans to promote, shoot videos and tour were wiped out by the emergence of the pandemic. In a bid to remain as active as possible the band sought ways to move forwards in the midst of the entire industry grinding to a halt. Several band and guest appearance play through videos, and even a home recorded live set were released, as well as pushing on with writing for the follow up to Obsolescence.

Birmingham death metal renegades Ashen Crown

Ashen Crown now have their sights set on the future, including an appearance on the Sophie Stage at Bloodstock in August. ‘Under The Leaves’ is the third and final single from their debut album and it is being accompanied by a music video, which we’re bringing to you first, put together by Kieran Scott of graphic design company Brutulz Art, who also happens to be the band’s singer.

Kieran says: “Under The Leaves breaches upon the impermanence and the ebb and flow of life and death. We all know our fates as we get older and we lose people along the way and new lives are brought into the world and we either fight or go with river of fates. The theme of the album parallels for our music which is created in the moment and will become obsolete to the artists and vicariously live through the listeners.”

27 June – The Castle & Falcon, Birmingham
3 July The York, Bolton
