about

The power to heal the soul and the will to overcome is one of the most powerful human traits. The ability to rise from defeat is within us all. Of Ashes was born from the ruins of wrecked relationships, dysfunctional former bands, and failed careers. Four separate lives have met to turn the "politically-correct" and complacent music scene in Denver, Colorado upside down.

The debut EP is a 30-minute metal/hardcore thrill ride that holds nothing back. Technical guitar riffs, searing vocals, and a relentless rhythm section adorn eight songs for your listening pleasure. This is just the beginning...

Track Name: Take Note!
Write this down!
My conscience is a spiral
Of taking notes, a paper trail

Deception casts the shadow
Shallow masking men of power

Would you believe the words they say?
Or nap the fever to its core

Though I won't hear the whisper
That separate the rich from poor

Reach through the liars,
And find your desires,
Created equal but not true

In an instant fleeting persistent,
Told we could never fill their shoes,


This world belongs to us now,
The old have strayed the way for young

I beg your ears for an instant
Heard teaching motions have begun

Taught straight to disassemble
Motion capped what use to be a soul

If you’re so smart you hear them
Why do you always run?

So scared and fault complacent
Beseeched with pictures and cartoons

If lessons take a beating
I want to see flesh black and blue





Reach through the liars,
And find your desires,
Created equal but not true

In an instant fleeting persistent,
Told we could never fill their shoes,


This world belongs to us now,
The old have strayed the way for young

I beg your ears for an instant
Heard teaching motions have begun

If war is just what you want
We’ll give you something to record
Good luck and try to palm mute
Open hand, closed fist, and ignored
Won’t be ignored


Not with this, not with this,

My conscience is a spiral
Of taking notes, a paper trail

Deception casts the shadow
Shallow masking men of power

Would you believe the words they say?
Nap the fever to its core

Though I won’t hear the whisper
That separate the rich from

Reach through the liars,
And find your desires,
Created equal but not true

In an instant fleeting persistent,
Told we could never fill their shoes,


This world belongs to us now,
This world belongs to us
This world belongs to us now,
This world belongs to us
This world belongs to us now
The old have strayed the way for young
This world belongs to ### ###, now
Track Name: Red Sheets Black Keys
Euthanize these feelings
I’m running out of steam

Count to three and close your eyes
Recollect everything you see

Is this a passing motive?
Is this a pertinent show?

Sitting and sliding sideways
Deeper in the bullet hole we gooooo
Gooooo , straight up

Mistakes made twice
Hold the assumption
I’ve paid it once
Torn the bill to peaces

Lessons
Are hardly worth caring for
Loosen up
And mesh the images
We
See


This stack of bones
It lays behind the walls of white
As simple as it seems
Lust is what holds the


Handle that you use to sling the dirt
And now
Blinded with the sands inside
This hour glass
Are tilted
And parted
To entertain the guests

They are arriving
And now
Answer the dooooor

Knock Knock Knock
Knock Knock Knock
Knock Knock Knock
Knock, Knock

Count back from three
And recollect what was just shown

Did you see the motive?
Is it meaningful now?
Did you see the motive?
Is it meaningful now?
Is it meaningful now?

Sitting and sliding sideways
Deeper in the bullet hole we go

Mistakes made twice
hold the assumption
I've paid it once
torn the bill to pieces

Standing and griping upwards
Climbing out
Pushing up
Making moves
We know,


Loosen up
And mesh the images
We
See

Loosen up
and mesh the images
we
see

Leave your mind aside
Track Name: Manage With Forethought
Ooooohhhh

If I had more years,
I would act the way
I always speak

Getting just one clock

At least see this
prize to fill

what is kept
Breathing in us all

seem to follow, wrong
even with the notice

Tired and degrading

So far and yet so long
I found a way
to distance


fighting off
your tin soldiers

strength means less
cause means more
touch what isn't meant
for your filthy hands

ohhhhhh

you're right
I'm digging out
where I put myself


when I choose to fall



I found it again,
I'm standing

the tip passing,
of single, pressed within

a cause to win
I'm ready
Ready for you to sell me

it's not right
you're screaming
screaming for
seconds added to life

desperate clash,
shattered all

If I get lucky
proper dots on this roll

when life changes
it appoints
the masses to conform

when the world stops
when our eyes cast
and when we all stop
killing each other

ill taste,
the breast of mother nature
take a second
never let the guard
sleep his watch

closed and in
not screaming
sold the copy rights


a cause to win
I'm ready
Ready for you to sell me

it's not right
you're screaming
screaming for
seconds added to life
Track Name: Returner
All in speaks to me,
Like it knows my name,

Take too long to drink
And fascination fades

A point of view,
Is just your ego,

The pills you take
Won’t cure,

Memory

You'll see it in that place
Built for forgotten

And chase the last
Words that were emotion

Let’s feed the cattle
And create no more


Let’s tear desire
From your needs

Once building motion
Became your end

Now you belong (Revenant)
All men dream but not equally, those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity, but the dreamers of the day are a dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible, This I did.

I feel this isn't a part of
What we yearn for

I feel this isn't a portion of
What we could be

Please ask more questions
Please lift more people up
Take no excuses
And find a means

Speak to me, know my name


Let's feed the cattle and create no more,
Lets tear desire from your needs,
Lets tear desire,
Lets tear desire,
Lets tear desire from your needs.
Track Name: Farewell
I’ve had my share of falling out,
Disappointed my presence to understanding
I take responsibility now,

In a choice, that was made for me
Giving thanks, lasting too laaaaaate
Is what marks this
old intention?

Disrupt the flow, and use three words
You were the pressure I so need
At last the moments gone
And I think back to when you left me


Resituate the point,
when you decide
I deserved a second chance
They couldn’t take my answers
But you read me like an idea
Not distaste but actual feeling
The love is there, even when you’re gone

The love is there, even when you’re gone


I was my darkest fortress,
And the addiction lacked the courage,
The false attempts at living,
The brave recoil of tension

Cast out from all I knew,
Adopted by the best of us
The best of life, truth in notion
As I carry on


I pray these simple words and notes
Will rise to your position
You’ll hear them with your heartbeat
And know

It’s easy, I breathe
I dream
I’m alive
Because of you



Believing life is made of choices,
I was deaths first pick,
But you won the coin toss
With strength behind your smile


Leaning towards love
It’s just a word
But the result
is still the same
I’m still the same




I pray these simple words and notes
Will rise to your position
You’ll hear them with your heartbeat
And know

It’s easy, I breathe
I dream
I’m alive
Because of you

I’m alive because of you


Farewell
Track Name: 4 Polar Opposites
Love told me once,
I could be anything in this world

I could spot a liar, from distances away

Did these words make sense,
when you heard my cries

wear the collar, to make this peace and kindness
fall away when left, to existence

Be safe if
you can't escape
your useless end

I will take what's mine,
and leave the rest to the filter,
that sifts through, your bullshit

changing the way that I move
changing the way that I think
changing the muscles, that move
when, I, breathe, in

burning the hole
burning the fabric
flawed from the start,
evil doesn't exist

And I leave this precipice, behind
Easy to change at the sight of, history

All the years of violence, makes us right
Or is simply that we,
all want power

we simply are what nature intended
human, for the sake of, being human
crushed into, a mold of currency


Right, Wrong


Background noise, to the voice behind your eyes
break through, break something,
All the pieces aren't intended to fit
Life's not a game of puzzles,

you can't track it down with ink
Life is short and sad, the only winners are the men
who seize their own, giving, side

And I leave this precipice, behind
Easy to change at the sight of, history

All the years of violence, makes us right
Or is simply that we,
all want power

We all want power

Right, Wrong
Sadness, Happiness
Life, Death
Beginning, end
Track Name: Are We The People?
Yeeeaa stuck


Now

I can't be me
I can't see the world
The way it was meant to be seen
Fake glass
Fake image of the

eyes

At last, at least
preamble in folly
More to learn
More to dread more to lay back
The pockets deeper thaaaan

I own
wheeeeennnnn
Cast of cooper

you're a bid
we're a bid for
theeeemmmmm

the royal they
the folly is no names
the ruse is no blame


swimming underneath
did you forget to breathe

what is this air?
don't elaborate

Won't be on my way just yeeet
list forward and whisper
the liquid in my ears


you're shallow
what I swallow in spite

you're empty
the story ends, we die

We doubt
We die
we die in doubt

All of us infected
all of us received

So why am I the Only One Who Knows Your Game

Again

Can't be me
At last see the world
How it was meant to be seen

Fake glass
Fake image of the

eyes
Preamble in strife
More to hope more to take back
your pockets empty then



Comparing the Feelings of Remembering
Knowing the pressure Is our gain

If I could lay them down and simply walk away
There's high chance you'll trip me when I turn

And, Still I turn
