Ash Borer, from a small town in northern California, debuted with
the intelligent metal music of
Ash Borer (Psychic Violence, 2011 - Profound Lore, 2013), containing
only three lengthy pieces, notably the twelve-minute opener
In The Midst Of Life We Are In Death
and the 20-minute closer My Curse Was Raised In The Darkness Against A Doomsday Silence.
They smoothly integrated ambient overtures, post-rock dynamics, black-metal
excesses and magniloquent doom-metal riffs.
More sprawling black-metal jams surfaced on Cold Of Ages (Profound Lore, 2012), each destabilized by anticlimatic elements:
and electronic overture for the
17-minute Descended Lamentations,
post-rock mood shifts for Phantoms,
female vocals (Jessica Way of Worm Ouroboros) for
the 18-minute Convict All Flesh, and all of them for
the 15-minute Removed Forms.
The EP Bloodlands (2013) contains Obilvion's Spring and
Dirge/Purgation, less sophisticated and rawer as if it had been
recorded before the albums.
