The title-track talks about how thoughts are able to go far, colliding with preconceptions until they are destroyed. To show us how powerful our thoughts are, ASHES FOR THE MUTE catapult us into the deepest space, to discover the deepest truths (and ourselves).
From a musical perspective the Denver quartet provides a blend of Black and Death Metal that turns out to be more and more intriguing as you proceed with listening, supported by a particular taste for groove given by the voice of the charismatic leader Jacob St. Amand and by the guitar of Donovan Parran.
ASHES FOR THE MUTE was formed in 2017 by Jacob St. Amand as a one-man Doom Metal project when he was living in Athens, GA. After moving the project to Denver, CO in 2018, the demo The Pantheist was released marking a shift towards a more blackened sound. Shortly after the release of The Pantheist, the band was joined by Donovan Parran (Guitar), David Aspesi (Bass), and Spy (Drums) allowing the band to perform live for the first time. Last year the band composed, recorded and completed his first full-length album Celestial Revelations. With tighter songwriting and more polished production Celestial Revelations provides an intriguing blend of Black and Death Metal, paying homage to both genres but remaining confined to none.
