'I don't wish you dead, I wish you broken. I lust not for your flesh, but for your failure. Smirk one more time, but look back over your shoulder, for when you grow lax I will still not forget.' - from 'Firstborn Amongst My Enemies' Ashes Within plays, simply, brutal music. We don't try to emulate or fit into any particular arcane sub-genre of the metal scene. Our songs are crafted for maximum visceral impact, whether it be simple or complex, harmonious or dischordant. They are played with brutally, honestly, and from the very core of everything we know. This exists. This is our crutch, our catharsis, and our weapon.
