Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Frost Like Ashes is a Christian blackened death/thrash band that formed in Kansas City, Missouri in 2001. The band has released two EP's (Born to Pieces and Pure as the Blood Covered Snow) and a full-length CD titled Tophet, and their songs have appeared on 2 compilations titled A Brutal Christmas and A Treasury of Sorrows. Previously signed to Psycho Acoustix Records and currently to Sullen Records, an imprint of Open Grave Records, their music combines elements of black metal, death metal and thrash metal with keyboards and virtuoisic vocals notable for "switching between about 10 different extreme styles within a given song." Their lyrics have achieved attention for their harsh output, providing a Biblical point of view for the regular, cruel themes of black metal music. The band is also controversial for using the typical war paint style often associated with the black metal visuals. Their live act incorporates a reversal of stereotypical black-metal images-for example, spitting in and tearing up a Satanic Bible and smashing a goat-skull adorned pentagram with a sword.show more
