Ash Code was born in 2014; now with two acclaimed albums on their backs and a vast live experience both in clubs and at all major festivals across the world, they have carved out a special place in the
shadowed hearts of contemporary darkwave lovers.
Perspektive is Ash Code third full-length, consisting of eleven main tracks (on the CD) about stories of the past and of an hypothetical dystopian future
to pinpoint the void and issues of contemporary society: tech slavery, keyboard warriors, frozen hearts, corrupted art, broken
promises, but envisioning a slight possibility of redemption.
The band marked down “We believe that every point of view is worthy of respect, every personal ‘perspective’. Ethical law is respect par excellence,
which originates from an empathetic feeling towards the others. If we learn to perceive each and every other person, even different species,
While remaining ourselves, there wont be anything negative in that”. This new work marks the turning point in sound; this time mainly focused on
darkwave electronic music but including a dirtier and more raw approach than the past, entailing claustrophobic sounds, unusual musical instruments and
a lot of echoes straight out of the 80s goth and indus-trial scene. Another novelty is the titletrack Perspektive, sung for the first time in German with
Luca Gillian from Die Selektion, a tribute to the nation loved by the band. This time the band has entrusted Doruk Ozturkcan (She Past Away) with the task
of mixing and mastering to his tastes accordingly and the LP cover is an interpretation of the concept behind the work made by Sandra Roczeń.
