In Pictures : Ashen Crown Live at Bloodstock Festival

Pre-Devilment, we popped into the New Blood Stage to see the latest fresh talent on the never-ending conveyor of awesome bands. Ashen Crown are well supported in the t-shirt stakes around the site and they are well worth the hype we’ve been hearing about them too.

Mixing up some heavy influences, they carry some serious clout. We can hear a bit of Lamb of God/Chimaira style American wave influences, but there’s something a bit more atmospheric in there too that digs up relic sounds from deepest darkest Stockholm.

In other words, some bloody great HEAVY Metal! We’ll be wanting to see these guys again when they have more than half an hour to play with.
