Silence doesn’t mean inactivity: Titta Tani is the new singer of Italian progressive metallers Ashent.
The band report: After a short but intense period of transition, the new Ashent line-up is finally completed. Titta Tani (Claudio Simonetti – Daemonia, Goblin, ex DGM and ex Necrophagia) officially joins the band, replacing the bands dear friend Steve Braun.After 5 years spent together, we friendly decided to follow different musical adventures, hoping to continue to improve ourselves as men, musicians and song-writers, with honesty and genuine passion. We wish Steve all the best, in order to reach new goals with his new band. Now, we are fully focused on the next gigs and we’re continuing the composition of our 3rd album that, with reasonable certainty, will be recorded during the next fall-winter period.
Steve’s statement: “Today is a very bittersweet day for me. My Ashent family and I have regretfully decided to part ways. Due to the economic problems in the world it was getting increasing harder to get over to Italy. After quite a few discussions we decided that the only way for Ashent to move forward is for them to look for a new singer. My wife Tara and I love our Ashent family and are sad that this period has to come to an end but we love Ashent too much to let it suffer because I couldn’t be a part as much as was needed. With this being said I couldn’t be happier that Titta has joined the Ashent family. He is an awesome singer as well as a great guy. We met last May when we did a few shows together and instantly I considered him a true friend. Thank you all for the memories and most of all your love and friendship. God Bless!!!!”
Titta’s personal statement: “Ashent welcome me as a family receives a relative who has been far away for a long time: with friendship and affection. And it’s FANTASTIC. To replace such an impressive singer as Steve is a challange that cannot be undervalued, but I will give the best of myself in order to find the way into the fans’ hearts of this amazing band!”
So guys, see you at the next gigs, and stay tuned checking the official pages.
