Ash of Ashes

LOCATION : Nachrodt-Wiblingwerde, Germany

Status : Active
Music : Folk Metal

Skaldir: vocals, guitars, bass and keyboards Morten: harsh vocals, lyrics

Skaldir founded Ash of Ashes after the end of his previous band Hel.
He started to write a song start right after that. 
Then he approximately took a year's break, but eventually the longing for epic Metal became so big that Skaldir wrote more and more songs.
During 2016 Skaldir had a phase in which he wrote half the album within a few days.
After that he became aware of the direction in which he wanted to go.

Sword Chant is back

Dear readers, artists and followers,

It is with enthusiasm I announce Sword Chant comes back even stronger !

I together with my new collegue, Taravilyaion, will care of this site, supporting bands as we ever do.
Before to join me, Taravilyaion was part of the Metal archives website. He will create bands pages here. Still, I will include those into the listings of Sword Chant and will do the other common things like sharing news, tourdates... About tourdates, I added some in the calendar and can add more of them.
Sharing lyrics could be by us both, within all the required rules that involved - As always.

If Sword Chant was on hold online, actually inner, it was not as I contacted hundreds of bands - and for technical issues,
i contact them all one by one. ...Still, left some to contact, fixing the best possible that newsfeed issue,  as previously explained.
My health didn't change or it became worse months ago and then, sometimes I may feel too tired to manage or work on a website…
