UK death metal titans Ingested have been churning out bilious anti-anthems for more than a decade and a half, dropping a string of releases that have helped shape the genre. In 2022, they return with 'Ashes Lie Still', their most dynamic, inventive and daring release to date, holding nothing back, the band describing it as “A modern essential. If you like heavy music, it will be nigh on impossible for you to not find something you like about this record. It still has the core Ingested elements of groovy slamming riffs, quick drumming, and guttural vocals but there's also atmosphere, ethereal moments and some raw old school aggression.” Over the course of ten tracks they hack, slash and steamroll through everything in their path, and it easily stands as the highpoint of an already impressive career.

Slimmed down to a three piece - comprising of drummer Lyn Jeffs, guitarist/backing vocalist Sean Hynes and vocalist Jason Evans - the band feel they are in the best place that they have ever been, enabling them to work at the top of their game. “All negativity has now been erased, we are all on the same page musically and we three share the same vision for Ingested. We know who and what we are and where we want to go. Sean always wrote 90% of our music so becoming a three-piece didn’t actually affect the way we approach writing albums. We’ve just streamlined our process and are now more productive. We are now able to add new elements, ideas and sounds in ways that would have faced internal resistance before.” 

The album title comes from its lead off track, the lyrics penned by Hynes, and is primarily about his father dying suddenly at the start of the pandemic and him not being able to say goodbye in a proper way. “Losing a parent is obviously a big moment in anyone’s life, and there were collective and individual battles we were all dealing with over this period and for many years to be honest. We all thought that Sean’s lyrics for “Ashes Lie Still” encapsulated everything perfectly, so we decided the album title based on that. It’s turned the entire process into quite a cathartic experience for us all, we’ve never really had that feeling with an album before.” 

Guest appearances include Aborted’s Sven De Caluwé on 'From Hollow Words', who does exactly what he’s known for with style, and finally Trivium’s Matt Heafy on 'All I’ve Lost'. “An absolute legend, we got chatting to him online a few years ago after he posted about how much he liked a song we’d released at the time. We ended up getting him in a lockdown music video we made during the pandemic and he said if we ever wanted to get him on a song he’d be well up for it so we knew we had to invite him to be part of this album. His vocal performance on the song is mesmerising, from the huge chorus hook to his aggressive verses, he truly captured the desperation of the track.
