    RELESSER: (re-less-er, Anglo-French root of the word "release").
    Modern Rock / Electronica Hybrid.
    The brainchild of multi-instrumentalist / songwriter, Asche, RELESSER's music fuses strong melodies with interweaving guitar crunch and electronic synth & sequencing. “If Metallica & Lady GaGa had a baby, this is what it might sound like.” Asche's music under the name "Autumn's Descent" has been heard around the world through licensing into movies and in TV shows on MTV & VH1, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, the WB, A&E, the NFL Network, & Disney. After doing studio work and remixes for other artists since 2006, RELESSER became a live performance entity in 2012.
    "Why did it take 4 years for your debut album to come out?" The 11 main songs, 7 soundscapes, 6 acoustic versions, 8 demos, and 11 instrumentals showcase what RELESSER was working on from Fall 2012 through the Spring of 2016. The band wrote and recorded demos and then took the songs on the road to refine them at festivals across the Midwest U.S. The main 11 songs and Soundscapes are meant to function as a concept album. The acoustic and early demos of the songs sometimes cast a different light on the songs and their moods.

Invocation 02:09
We call upon Your Name Descend upon this place We offer up our praise Fill this place
Awakening 03:21
Failure surrounds me on every side All of my efforts seem to have died Piercing the darkness You take hold of me I can see now who You know I can be You light this fire inside of me I’m broken now but I can see My fear and doubt have been erased I am alive! I am awake! I was so blinded by so many lies Broken and hurting from my compromise My regrets have cast a spell on my soul My only chance is to release control Your light! Your love! Your Truth revealed!
Resistance 03:27
You say it’s in my head You say my sense is dead Chosen path of stupidity You deny what you don’t see So smart that you have missed Shown love that you dismissed Blinded by hypocrisy Your belief you justify Anything to calm the fears Take for granted what you hear Leaning into the sun Behind the lies they stand against us Fight until it’s done Pushing on we are resistance Violence bleeds a lack of faith Looking for one to take the blame It’s everything that we can’t take You’ve let the anger turn to hate After all that we’ve been through you say ‘Can’t you see He’s abandoned you?’ It’s when I’ve got nothing left to lose I find He’s always at my side Truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth
Enough 03:44
It’s never enough - It’s never satisfying It’s never enough - And it kills me inside It never hits me ‘till I’m face down on the floor again Excuses that I made have brought me to my knees Always wondering what this hell inside is doing here I bought the lie and now I’ve lost a part of me I keep on running but I find my way back here again I keep on trying but I can’t make it too far On my own I’m breaking down in my futility My efforts show that I am weak, despite my scars This world has got a hold and I can’t seem to remedy I’ve lost my way but I can always see Your face You’re reaching down and picking up the pieces of my life My hope is resting in the hollow of Your hand But You are enough – And I took for granted That You are enough – And You won’t forsake me now You took this pain I’m causing You took the shame I’m feeling You took away my burden You took this suffering I caused You You took the blame I placed You took the punishment And chose to forgive
Forfeit 04:15
I’m in this place again And I’ve taken all I can Building up my regrets While running from Your plans How long will I fail You? How deep will I fall? I fall… Holding onto my pain Drowning in my faults It’s not so complicated I need to give You all I know You’ll take this from me If I ask You to I’ve hurt like this for so long I’ve hurt like this for too long
Worthwhile 03:49
The glory in the end is worth the struggle Whispered in my ear – the temptation is sweet And I’d like nothing more than to indulge this hunger I am fighting always ever struggling just to make it farther I am trying just to make it, just to make a little longer I will never, I will never let him get control of me Giving in is not the life, it’s not the life You have for me Frustration stares me in the eye Hanging on every second Haunted by trials I faced before My failures won’t define me My path is shaken – I’m pushing through This road forsake – I follow You Call attention to the weakness in my armor Thinks he can exploit it but I’m growing stronger I am reaching, ever reaching for the greatness inside me Take me further, ever further than the plans I have for me For Your plans are not my plans and for Your ways are not my ways And giving into sin is not the life You have for me The way is dark and I won’t back down The glory in the end is worth the struggle
Arson 04:02
We’re reaching out into the darkness We shift the view 180 degrees We light the fuse for detonation And watch the flames consume humanity Have you heard the call? Your awakening Yes we hear the call: Repent and receive Burn me down to the ashes Fuel my heart with Your passion We’ve seen the face of human failure The cult of self demands your bended knee You’ve been suckered in to blindness It’s time to rise against our enemy Too many lost in misdirection Too many souls who think their sin keeps them free God, bring the flame of Revelation Reveal Yourself to all and we shall be free!
Trust 03:52
I’m trying to make sense In all of this conflict Trapped in my weakness Even in darkness When I am broken I trust You completely Waiting patiently for the echoes of the melody Changing everything I perceive in me To recognize who I’m meant to be I see You now for who You really are When I have none, I find my strength in You
Dwell 02:52
Oh God, I’m tired - I’m tired of this lie Nothing but vanity is in my life For all my efforts, I cannot attain The prize that is Your glory I struggle in vain Without You I’m nothing I have nothing I am Yours to dwell in Make me pure and sacred You are the purpose to that which I seek And You are the healer So come deliver me
Recreate 04:14
I’ve just discovered who I really am And You’ve been waiting patiently for me to understand And You know this pain that I’m holding inside And You know this guilt that’s been eating me alive I want to let it all go Come make me into who I’m meant to be Recreate me now, I need to feel alive You love me as I am, despite all the things I’ve done I want to mirror who You are so I fulfill Your plans for me And I’ve been feeding destruction for so long – Diving into things that left me empty And I know You can heal this broken heart Come make me into who I’m meant to be And I fall down at Your feet for what You’ve done for me
Doxology 05:22
We call upon Your Name You’re with us in this place We offer up our praise All for You How long, oh Lord, will you forget me? How long, oh Lord, will you hide from me? Must I keep this sorrow in my soul? Light my eyes up lest they see death Lest they rejoice for I am shaken Answer me, oh Lord my God! You are my God You are my everything You are my God I give You everything I have trusted – Your love is faithful My heart rejoices in Your salvation I will sing to you, oh my King! This world will hate You – They’ll rise against You Through persecution, they’ll see Your glory One day they’ll bow to you, oh my King! I can feel You reaching out now Take my life and make it Yours now I can feel You reaching out now Take my life and make it Yours


This album is about identity. And failure. And learning. And then finally finding identity; who we are meant to be.
When we recognize and claim our identity in the risen Christ, we stop identifying our worth through fame, money (or lack there of), political affiliation, sexuality, depression, illness, addiction, and abuse. It’s wonderful that the God who will eventually destroy all wickedness loves us enough to provide a way out eternal death: by repenting and following Jesus. - RELESSER
“I think the reason we sometimes have a false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put Him. We have kept Him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on Him in prayer, we wonder where He is. He is exactly where we left Him.” – Ravi Zacharias
“I claim my inheritance as a child of God; a follower of the risen Christ! I stand with His authority and power! I rebuke the evil that has plagued my life to this point. I call upon Almighty God and ask You to forgive me of this wretched, selfish, sinful life which has ultimately caused me pain and hurt those I love. I want to turn and follow You, Jesus. As I pray this to You now, help me not to fall back into old dysfunctional but comfortable patterns. Please break my hardened heart and remove my pride. Please put people in my path who will disciple me, help me find answers to my questions, help keep me accountable, help me grow in my new life with You, and most of all – show Your love to me. Give me a hunger and thirst for You, oh Lord! I thank You and praise You for saving me from hell. Hell is where evil is destroyed. And knowing I am sinful beyond measure and cannot do anything to earn Your favor, I am so grateful for Your sacrifice in my place. And for that, I love You with all my being. Amen.”
