Ashes And Iron are back after 6 years and what a comeback! The Wind Takes A Side captivates the listener from the first second to it's last and in the end you just can't get enough of it and wish there were more tracks! This is one of the best releases of 2014 and surely the best post-metal EP I've heard in the past few months.

Ashes And Iron are a 4 piece downtempo-posteverything-instrumental outfit from St. Louis, MO.

"The Wind Takes A Side, the second release from St. Louis' downtempo-instrumental-indie-metal outfit Ashes And Iron is a dark, cathartic ride. A dystopian soundtrack where sweeping, visually evocative tracks move from crisp, telecaster driven layers of harmonized gloom to the wide open roar of unforgiving despair, all songs laced with mournful melody. Midwestern delivery dominates here: a muscular, propulsive rhythm section and angular, cascading waves of guitar fill an expansive canvas. Ashes And Iron take no shortcuts and The Wind Takes A Side drones, slashes and burns proving again the beauty to be found in perfect desolation."- Andrew Elstner (Torche)
