The Dutch black metal band Asgrauw is active since 2010. While their first album ‘Schijngestalten’ showed straight-forward old skool influences, the following material showed a more atmospheric and melancholic vibe. They are affected by the great 90’s Scandinavian hordes like Ulver, Emperor, Dodheimsgard and Darkthrone, what you observe on their 2th album ‘Krater’. Asgrauw relies on a dark and bleak atmosphere with piercing guitars and haunting synths, that are strengthened with powerful and energetic punky riffs and heavy drums. Asgrauw has two vocalists, which gives a lot of variety in vocal styles. Their thirth album ‘Gronspech’, which is performed in local dialect, was well received by the press. Publicity, however, does not interest the band. The men follow their own introvert path and are averse to trends and opinions.
