Full of enthusiasm thanks to a very recent 3-album licensing deal with METROPOLIS Records for the USA, ASH CODE continue their constant rise in the post-punk scene worldwide! Here now the THIRD re-print of their incredibly successful debut from 2014. Digipak, 4-pages booklet + EXCLUSIVE, previously unreleased extended mix of the “Dry Your Eyes” hit single! This third print comes with the WHITE cover design (as 1st original press) and includes the same 3 bonus-remixes that were already included on the 2nd print PLUS the exclusive remix as written above. A RE-PRINT of the long sold out ‘Oblivion’-Vinyl is foreseen for later this year on MANIC DEPRESSION.
“Residing somewhere between dark wave, post punk and batcave the Italians succeed in creating a charming niche with their debut album ‘Oblivion’...It remains mysterious how just a release produced in Italian summer is able to create such a terrific end of days atmosphere...”(Sonic Seducer)
“Ash Code have successfully managed to blend the cold despair of the post-punk of the early eighties, with modern catchy sounds, and deliver with Oblivion one of the best darkwave albums of the year.” 94/100 (peek-a-boo)
“It’s impossible to do anything other than to play this CD over and over again on repeat—you wont be able to just listen to it once...Thus In stating all of this, the arc of suspense of this album deserves a solid 10/10.” (Post-Punk.com)
