Alabama natives Embers in Ashes have produced an accomplished second album, Killers & Thieves, out February 25th. Driving guitars and pleading melodies blend seamlessly with the intense drum rhythms and strong vocals of this album.

Rock fans will enjoy front man Jeremy’s ability to take the vocals to intense highs; the vocals on this album are varied over a good range but seem comfortable to him. The rock vibe is present throughout the album, even on so-called softer pieces like “What Matters.” This song is one of my favorites, as the lyrics are worshipful and a cry for help, healing, and acceptance. Really, this song seems to echo what Embers in Ashes are about as a band. Embers in Ashes says that their name is the idea that life can come from what seems like death, and this song certainly reflects that concept.

The eighth track, “Stones,” is an interesting addition to the album as it is lyric-less. This intensely driving song is another favorite. Other highlights are “2000 Miles,” a great hang-banging anthem, and “The Mirror” which features a sweet drumbeat/guitar riff combo. “Into My Arms” even introduces a few electronic elements into this blend.

Killers & Thieves contains an intriguing combination of guitars/vocals/drums. While not always anticipated, most of these unusual rhythm patterns work very well with the over-all feel of the album. Occasionally these patterns can be a bit distracting from the lyrics, but mostly the complicated musical elements point to how talented these musicians are.

Slightly Obsessed #186: When the Path Ahead Is Fearsome

The room was dark and shadowed, the only sound within its walls the rhythmic whoosh of the ventilator beside my son’s bed. I sat on an uncomfortable chair jammed into one corner of the room. In the faint light that fell from the window across the pages of the Bible I held, I tried to corral my stampeding fears long enough to find some comfort from God’s Word. Outside the door of his room, a cacophony of voices from the nurses’ station jarred our shattered nerves.
