From Ashes Rise – Rejoice The End/Rage Of Sanity

From Ashes Rise have been around for a long time, 16 years this year in fact and yet not many people have the foggiest clue who they actually are. So here’s some background: they’re hard-core punk four-some from Nashville, Tennessee and last year they penned and released this single.

While both tracks are strong, ‘Rage Of Sanity’ is this my personal favourite. At 2:33 its fast, aggressive and sounds like Lemmy taken hostage by The Casualties. As for ‘Rejoice The End’ this track combines the bands punk roots with a touch of sludge metal that starts well but wears thin towards the 3 minute mark.
