DAWN OF ASHES Releases Unsettling, NSFW Video for “EMDR”!

Los Angeles based Industrial Metal band DAWN OF ASHES has revealed the hotly anticipated, intensely graphic official music video for their single, “EMDR.” Fully NSFW, featuring unsettling imagery as analogies for the wholly encompassing and often contradictory experiences of severe trauma sufferers, “EMDR” is not for the feint of heart, but serves as a uniquely explicit insight into a mind struggling to achieve balance and recognition beyond suffering. Originally premiered with METALSUCKS, “EMDR” is the first single off of the band’s recently released and heavily praised new LP, Scars of the Broken, which is available to purchase (physical and digital) and stream online via ARTOFFACT RECORDS.

“The story behind the music video ‘EMDR’ is about a trauma victim who experiences EMDR therapy. She slips into a nightmare and is being tormented in sexual and disturbing ways by a trauma spirit. In the end she becomes possessed by the spirit and ends up becoming what she fears the most.” – KRISTOF BATHORY

“Dawn of Ashes keep bucking expectations as they go, never settling into one niche but instead straddling them all, and making some of them feel very uncomfortable about being straddled…It fits well with the band’s lack of overly-traditional sounds and images; combining what one loves about dark extreme metal with contemporary topics in a disturbing way.” – METALSUCKS

1. (Descending) Torn Inside
2. Love is Asphyxiation
3. The Despondent Hole
4. EMDR
5. Bane of Your Existence
6. (Limbo) Numb
