Feeling a bit camera shy


"ASHLINE formed as a group of friends came together in April of 2005 to form a new musical project that would destroy what you thought you knew as rock and roll. With influences such as Deftones, Muse, Finch, Dredg, He Is Legend, Dillenger Escape Plan and many more, the gentlemen of ASHLINE have crafted the next great album for the children of both today and the future. With soaring melodies resembling singers such as Matt Belamy (MUSE) and Chino Moreno (DEFTONES), John-Henry Velez steps to the forefront as one of music's next virtuouso-eque frontmen. Backing vocalist Richie Essenburgh and guitarist Will Duncan hold down sonically screaming guitar parts that are layered so intricately listeners can't help but wonder where these sounds are coming from. With John Mahon and the amazing Ryan Butler on drums, it's obvious that there are a select few bands out in the music industry with a rhythm section this strong. The infectiously soaring melodies of Velez and Essenburgh combined with the math-rock, time-signature fracturing parts of Duncan, Mahon, and Butler come together so effortlessly that listeners can’t help but think that this music is what these gentlemen were born to play. Their debut record, “Bliss.In.Sanity.” was recorded and mixed at Ledbelly Studios with Matt Washburn and mastered by Rodney Mills. Much time was spent crafting ASHLINE’s debut album, and it shows on your first listen. From the intricate introduction of a crackling piano on “Tinate” to the last scream and synthesizer note on “What Woke You Up,” you won’t know what just hit you. At times beautiful, then undeniably ferocious, the album leaves listeners with spinning heads and dropping jaws. Say what you will about modern rock and roll. ASHLINE is the best of it. It's time the world knew just how good it was. Consider this a warning. You'll want to be in on it before it's too late."
