Amy’s Ashes, formed by guitarists Aliz and Eric in late 2007 in Uppsala Sweden, was initially a dorm room project which turned into a band. After a few home recordings, the duo got in touch with drummer Matte Modin (Raised Fist, ex. Dark Funeral) and bassist Gus (Defleshed) to complete the line-up, led by Aram (The Mist of Avalon) on vocals.
In March of 2008 Amy’s Ashes entered the studio to debut their sound – a glamorized mix of gothic tendencies and fashionably crunchy modern rock. The self-released EP, produced by Örjan Örnkloo (In Flames), gained immediate success amongst fans and alternative press. Assisted by Mama Trash Promotions (US), the band was reached by a growing international audience, resulting in a spot at the 2009 Finnish Trash Fest II. Airtime in American, English, French and Finnish alternative radio along with various interviews, Amy’s Ashes were also featured on the compilation album “In trash we trust”, released in the US.
Shortly after the EP was released the band was approached by several labels, but unsatisfied with the conditions offered; writing new songs, playing gigs and building a buzz felt more important than anything offered prior to this day.
Amy’s Ashes are currently working together with the renowned producer Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames, Strapping Young Lad) on a single from the forthcoming debut album. The single, followed by a music video will be released later in 2009.
”If these guys can keep producing songs this catchy and this dynamic, then people will be talking about them all day long.”
“Spherical interludes and delightful melancholic vocals. After these three songs we can say that the debut album can become a real hit!”
“You are hooked before you even have the chance to notice it.”
