Ashes And Iron is a band hailing from Saint Louis, US and consists from six band members:
Thad Martin - Drums
Dave Lawrence - Bass
Chris Denton - Guitars
David Miller - Guitars
Ian Mahan - Guitars
Kenny Snarzyk - Keyboards/Vocals

They have released their first demo which is free for everyone to download from their site. The demo has three tracks and its playtime is 30'. During hearing the EP you're completely stunned by the doomish melodies of theirs. I have to admit though that 30' are not enough to satisfy your need for a mix of post-metal, sludge and doom, so I heard it 4 times in a row.

Maybe they found the element that Sirens used to attract the sailors, but believe me when I say that this is the most exciting and interesting EP I heard for a while, and this is only a demo. Let's hope that they'll release a full length album, which will be even more stunning. Great job guys!!!

Absolutely recommended for fans of Cult Of Luna, Isis, Callisto.
