Hard rock band, Ashes of Tyranny have been together, in one form or another, for over ten years and have finally released their debut album, “Shrine.” The quartet have created some of the heaviest music of any other independent band in the business. The new album starts off with the crunching guitars of “Demolition Man,” which carries a sound similar to the nineties alternative metal band Helmet. The band dives into the progressive metal territory on the seven-minute “Satisfy,” then get hardcore on the screaming, growling vocals of “Suffer.” The album closes with Ashes of Tyranny showing their influences on the Tool-like epic sounds of “Deathbringer.”
Ashes of Tyranny have a couple of shows lined-up in the Kansas area. For more information about the band and their new album, “Shrine,”please visit ashesoftyranny.com.
