Dawn of Ashes music video ‘making-of’ featured on Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps

November 22nd, 2010

Dawn of Ashes music video ‘making-of’ featured on Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps!;  On tour now with Dimmu Borgir and Enslaved

Dawn of Ashes shot their new video for Transformation Within Fictional Mutation just weeks ago with director David H. Greathouse (special effects master, film director and music video director behind Mushroomhead’s videos). The video was produced by Robert Kurtzman’s (KNB EFX founder, F/X legend, director) PRECINCT 13, who also handled the special effects. Dawn of Ashes shot on location at the Bissman Building in Mansfield, Ohio, which is widely rumored to be haunted and was recently featured on an episode of the Syfy Channel’s Ghost Hunters.

The behind the scenes footage for Transformation Within Fictional Mutation can be seen now on episode #15 of Robert Kurtzman’s Creature Corps over on creaturecorps.net! Make sure to watch the episode to see how the special effects of this over-the-top music video came together.

The Transformation Within Fictional Mutation video was recently premiered on BloodyDisgusting.com and can be seen now on MetalBlade.tv. Dawn of Ashes’ tour with Dimmu Borgir and Enslaved is underway and wraps up on December 14th in Quebec City, Canada.

“DAWN OF ASHES —a horror metal group complete with flesh-eaten faces—are 100 percent melodic death metal. And what works for this band (unlike so many of their counterparts) is that the songs here aren’t built around the strengths of any one member. Vocals aren’t over-the-top, solos aren’t soul-sucking and the drummer doesn’t go nuts on the China cymbal during breakdowns… the ability to play Chapters over and over and not get sick of it shows that this band is doing a lot right.” Decibel Magazine

“A whirlwind of eerie melodic black metal” Revolver Magazine

“Kristof Bathory will scare the crap out of you with his delivery. It’s definitely an album worth listening to though, just maybe not before bed.” Powerplay Magazine (UK)
