One of the most exciting bands that we’ve encountered in recent years, Echoes From Ashes have charged right into the heard of the American rock scene, breaking away from their hometown scene and setting fire to airwaves wherever their songs are heard.
Their self-titled debut EP was released in April of this year and brought with it five tracks of unique energy and unrelenting power. Recorded with Michael Bivens at the celebrated Redwood Studios and produced by Dan Stefl, the band’s own bass player, the eponymous release has grown to become the near-perfect illustration of their sound and potential.
A cataclysmic ensemble of thunderous, reverberating guitar, hard-hitting percussion, and calling, almost euphoric vocals, the EP is a rare combination of energy, weight, and vibrant emotion.
Standout anthems of ‘Cold Surrender’ and ‘Down’ make the EP a worthy listen on their own, pulling apart your traditional progressive rock sound and building it back up in the band’s own vision. The vocals of Matt Kelly hit their mark at every turn, pitching and rolling with the instrumentation, really highlighting that band’s ability to put their hearts into each song. Every part of the EP has been made to satisfy even the most critical and hard to please music fans, and if you give them a chance, you’ll surely be impressed by what Echoes For Ashes have to offer.
