Description

Death/Doom, Gothic/Doom

Ashes You Leave's first album, 'The Passage Back to Life', sounds identical to My Dying Bride's 'Turn Loose the Swans'.

The bands doom tendencies were eventually replaced by a straight forward Gothic metal approach. Most of reference to their doomed roots were cut on their second album. A curious band for fans of more romantic, female fronted Gothic metal.
