Athens, GA-based metal band Ashes to Omens has released a new lyric video for their track “War Cry” exclusively here on HM. Not long after the band formed in 2017 as a four-piece, vocalist James Branton was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. After undergoing treatment, he was cleared, returning to the band where they added a second guitarist and released a self-titled EP in 2018.
We spoke with Brandon about the song:
“‘War Cry’ is a song about overcoming depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental illnesses. It’s a song about being strong in yourself and knowing that no matter what you go through, you’re not alone.”
The band is currently tracking their second album at LedBelly Studios in Dawsonville, GA with engineer Matt Washburn. The album will be produced, mixed, and mastered by Justin Davis of American Music.
