Ashka Signs To Rogue Records, Announces "Ritual" Release

Rogue Records has issued the following announcement about releasing the "Ritual" album from female-fronted act Ashka:

"Hailing from Paris, France but utilizing vocals in English, Ashka is an eye-catching female-fronted metal band about to break out of their home market. Formed in 2007 the band have worked to hone their metal genre-defying heavy yet melodic sound. The result is 'Ritual,' their first release for Rogue having signed to the American metal indie label's expanding and varied roster in summer of this year.

"The album contains 8 hard hitting slabs of groove metal and now gets a worldwide outing following its release in France earlier this year. Lead-singer Syhem's vocals are both sweet and startling. From beautiful clear melody on tunes like 'Breathe,' and 'Romance,' to a brutal death growl on 'Nameless.' The band also comprises Laurent (guitar) Eric (drums) & Crypp (bass)."

“We've a very strong idea of the kind of music we want to make and we're really happy with what we've been able to produce for 'Ritual.' It was well received at home and we're looking forward to grabbing new fans all over the world,” said lead-singer Syhem.

Rogue Records founder and owner, Dean Martinetti, said “We're excited to bring Ashka to the attention of metal fans around the world. They have an awesome sound, not just in terms of their musicianship but the production is excellent too.”
