"Awakened" (Self-released; 2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann


If you want fire from a metal band web site, just click on and you will be instantly enveloped into the universe of From The Ashes. 

For a more complete immersion, any card carrying metalhead should buy "Awakened" now. This release is packed with one ear-splitting song after another. This band is for real, no bullshit, nothing held back, just raging, quality metal at every venture.

"Awakened" appealed to my metal core and told me exactly what the band's version of a metal universe would sound like and, let me tell you, I am a member of that club from now on. 

All this talk makes me want to stop right here and listen to this totally fucking awesome metal release once more. This is one CD I can heartily recommend. It awakened a metal monster in me that needs to feed again, soon, and this music is its food.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
