"Ashen Reign is One Vision, One Purpose, One Goal. Music played with emotion, passion and integrity. Ashen Reign is a one man band, all instruments, mixing, engineering. It is really for wanting to share my musings with you. Nothing more, nothing less. Music played with precision, attack and focus. The musical direction can be described as melodic metal, modern, dark and brooding, that is played with a true passion for the music and creating something that is unique."
