Profile: Founded in 1996 by Kevyn Douglas Hay, Written In Ashes is a rock/gothic/darkwave band from Portland, Oregon. Their distinctive blend of drums, guitar, bass, synthesizers and complex orchestration has consistently impressed audiences— both in recordings and in their energetic live performance which includes intricately edited video for most every song. Crossing many boundaries, they have proven to appeal to many audiences and have rarely failed to impress even the staunchest of critics.

Their self-released debut album “Eternal” was released in 1997 and hailed as “The new sound of Gothic.” In 1999, the band released “Eclipse” followed by “Epiphany” in 2000. Their self-titled album “Written In Ashes” was released in 2003 on Latex Records. They have appeared on many compilations including Cleopatra Records’ “Unquiet Grave, Volume I,” Ankhor Records’ Alice Cooper tribute “Mutations” and Livid Look Glass’ “Compilation, No. 1.”

Released in the fall of 2006 their newest single “Life” from the “Life” EP features radio and club-friendly mixes which puts them firmly on the path to commercial success.
