Editorial Reviews

Following on from the recent success of Inheritance the latest release from Italian progressive metal outfit Ashent, Lion Music are pleased to offer up a timely reissue of the bands long out of print 2006 debut album Flaws Of Elation. In addition this new print comes with all new artwork and the additional bonus of the bands very first ultra rare 2003 4 track demo! Flaws Of Elation is a prog-power experience with some modern techno- thrash influences which are reflected in the way Ashent arrange and play guitars and drums. There are also some death metal references, in the mode the band use growling as backing vocals that have their   importance   in   the   economy   of   Ashent's   sound, wisely mixed with a modern prog attitude that uses avant-garde and gothic elements in order to create intense and dramatic music. The atmosphere is very dark, but the vocals of American vocalist Steve Braun are extremely melodic, supported by some beautiful orchestrations. On Flaws Of Elation bassist Gianpaolo Falanga comments, "Flaws of elation was our debut originally released 7 years ago: looking back now we wanted to share for the first time our complete musical vision for the long distance demonstrating that the progressive power metal could be created in a more aggressive and personal way than the usual clichés heard in the genre. We aimed to develop a balance between catchy vocals and huge riffing, creating true songs with interesting arrangements". On the change in sound from the bonus 2003 demos to the Flaws Of Elation album Gian comments, "At the time of our first official demo, the songs had a more "power-metal"   attitude,   with   less complex drum work and keyboards being more dominant. We decided to release the 2003 demos at the end of this reissue in order to underline the stylistic differences between the 4 songs in the original 2003 version, in comparison with the 2006 versions. You can clearly observe the renewed sound approach, with the introduction of seven strings guitars, more dynamic drum patterns and fills, but also a lot of choirs and harmonizations, with the aim to magnify the 2 sides of our sound: the aggressive and the melodic". Not only does the Flaws Of Elation album mark a refinement of the bands sound, but also a change in personnel with new singer Steve Braun, drummer Davide Buso and guitarist Cristiano Bergamo joining the band between the albums creation and the 2003 demos.

The songs I have been able to listen to off this Debut CD have been Excellent! It is in my opinion a great addition to your Prog Rock CD collection.

You may ask.. "It's a import... Is it worth it?" I have listened to alot of new emerging bands through my station Planet Radio VR. These guys from Italy are some of the best new bands i've been fortunate enough to listen to and I'm honored to play them on my station.. Check their home site at [...] as there is word on a second CD in the works.

Their music is beyond just good for a new band. They sound like they have been playing for decades together.. One listen I am sure you will agree. A good buy for sure.
