FROM ASHES RISE
REJOICE THE END/RAGE OF SANITY
SOUTHERN LORD

Returning after a lengthy hiatus, From Ashes Rise dole out a triumphant two-track 7 comeback with REJOICE THE END/ RAGE OF SANITY. Considered to be one of the forerunners in the crust-punk movement, this quartet doles out a raging mix of heaviness and melody that falls somewhere between Tragedy, The Bronx, and Motorhead, leaning heavy on the punk side for its vocal cadences while taking a more metallic approach on the seething guitars and d-beat influenced bass and drum rhythms. Armed with a increased increment of rock n roll without losing any of the vitriol from their roots, while From Ashes Rise sound a bit more produced and polished here than on earlier works, this reunited crew showcase they still can deliver a commendable amount of snarling vocal lines and rousing riffs to keep old fans happy and new fans coming back for more. -Mike SOS
