CD Review: After Ashes – Broken Culture Demo

Posted: January 20, 2012 by Windsor Zene in CDs, Live Performances, Previews, Reviews

Harrow is a small town about 40 minutes south of Windsor. Hailing from here is a heavy metal band, After Ashes. This is a group that takes influence from all corners of the metal genre, and their new demo, Broken Culture is a great reflection of their diversity.

The opening track Fictional Diet is very Lamb of God inspired, while Sweet Relief has more of a Black Dahlia Murder feel, and the title track brings out the prog in a 7 minute epic with vocals that are a mix of power and death metal.

Recorded at with Brett Humber at Sound Foundry Studio is Kingsville, this album is fast, tight, and technical.  Playing styles from track to track are diverse, but hold the common theme of being heavy, fast, and in your face.

This young band is clearly dedicated to their craft, and in their debut recording is just a start, as I am certain they’ve yet to reach their full potential as individual musicians and as a band.

Their new demo will be officially released this Friday, January 20, 2012 at The Coach and Horses (156 Chatham St. W, Basement Level) along with scene staples Reasons Lost and the aggressive fucking thrash metal stylings of Weapon of Choice.
