“The Use Of Ashes, based in Nijmegen, Holland, have a long history. The band evolves from Mekanik Kommando, born on the waves of the early 80s ‘Ultra Movement’ in Holland. Mekanik Kommando record no less than six albums and some film scores. The band also performs hundreds of shows. Over the years Mekanik Kommando adapts a more spheric, organic and psychedelic style. Most of the electric instruments are replaced by acoustic instruments. The music changes, the name changes. Mekanik Kommando becomes The Use Of Ashes, named after a Pearls Before Swine album. The Use Of Ashes is cinematic, dim and explores the caves of a rich dreamworld, challenging the listener to accompany the band on a journey in its world. A reissue of the final Mekanik Kommando album The Castle Of Fair Welcome marks the start of The Use Of Ashes in 1988.”
