It's not often that I find a new piece of music that blows my mind inside out. The Ember, The Ash has done exactly that with their constantly expanding blend of unforgettable riffs, epic atmosphere, and the kind of heaviness you dream of hearing but rarely find anywhere.
Favorite track: Strychnine.
Under every black metal album on here you see the word "cold" - and hell I own all those, too. But it's nice to experience something distinctly BM but which you could, with only minor reservations, describe as "warm". I confess I prefer the 2nd half of the album to the Hans Zimmer opening suite, but I really enjoy what this band have going on. Luke
