From Ashes to New
The Future

From Ashes to New has been rising through the ranks over the last few years with their rap-metal style. They’ve quickly become a fan favorite in their genre and they continue to grow in popularity. I personally have been listening to them now for about 3 years and I love these guys. This new album features both their new drummer and their new lead vocalist.

So they have always had a good mix of metal and hip-hop, clean vocals, and rap. This album, in my opinion, shows their growth as a group, giving even more of a balance. The second song, “Crazy”, is a great mix of slower acoustic guitar melodies with soft clean vocals, then building into a heavier, more catchy chorus, also including some raps. Then the very next song, “My Name”, is more rap oriented for the verses and has a great tone for the chorus. The song “Enemy” is one of my favorites on the album. It really showcases their style perfectly, with softer verses leading into a heavier, strong chorus. The message it gives is a powerful one of us being our own worst enemies and having that reflect onto other people we are around. The last song is the title track and it’s really heavy on the hip-hop side during the verses while showing the rock side of them for the chorus. It talks about the newer upcoming generations being the future responsible for the upkeep of our societies.

This album, for me, has really impressed me. Listening to them for years now, I love how much I can hear their growth and maturity. Their lyrics have become more powerful, their music more diverse, and they’ve done an amazing job mixing styles to create their own unique sound. Watch out for this band in the years to come because they are talented. Go check out this new album and more of their music, and if they tour near your city I highly recommend seeing them play!!
