Comments Off on ASHEN – Intense New Single & Video: “Chimera” 

Ashen, the Parisian metalcore sensation, is proud to release their latest single and music video, “Chimera.” This powerful track, steeped in lead vocalist Clem’s personal struggles, transforms his experiences of injustice and pain into a striking expression. 

Chimera” emerges from the shadows of Clem’s troubled youth, channeling his lingering sense of injustice into a vengeful fantasy.

The track personifies Chimera as an anti-hero – a guardian for the oppressed, a balance to the scales of fairness. In this vivid portrayal, Clem and Chimera become intertwined, reflecting a dual existence that resonates throughout the song’s erratic structure and evolution. 

The lyrics, with lines like “Blood red eyes, straight out of a thriller” and “Knife in your mouth here’s a brand new tongue split,” create a vivid, tumultuous world where despair meets resilience. Accompanied by a music video, “Chimera” showcases Ashen‘s talent in fusing compelling imagery with their emotive, hard-hitting sound.

With this release, Ashen not only steps into a new chapter but also introduces a new facet to Clem’s persona, hinting at further explorations in their upcoming works. Formed in 2021, Ashen quickly became a therapeutic medium for its members, merging modern metal with rock influences to reflect on personal and collective traumas.
