Summary:

Bright guitars, and crisp drums flow through the speakers as if you just took a bite of a juicy apple — not too bitter and not too sweet — the opening track, “Set Fire,” sets the pace. Hailing from Alabama, Embers in Ashes has hints of Southern rock and metal throughout its solid backbone. The weakest part of Killers and Thieves would be the vocals. Even though they are consistent throughout the album, there seems to be a lack of the lower frequencies in the voice — or possibly too much of the high? — it is something I am sure the band will work out in the long run. For now, the question is what do the embers become, and what rises out of the ashes?

Quite The Undertaking

Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.
