Ashes Of Amber

Mid-2010, with aspirations to form a premiere metal band from Northern NJ, guitarist Johnny Lopez and bassist Julio Perez Santos came together and set out to search for the right people to fulfill their goal. Nothing would get in their way and after a year of searching for members and using the World Wide Web, they finally found likeminded musicians with talent and commitment. First was drummer, Tom Tierney. Next would be vocalist, Carl Morissaint. Last to complete the line-up would be guitarist/keyboardist, Fabio Sisco. Finally, one year after their conception, Ashes Of Amber's line-up was now complete as a five piece. They were ready to begin the next phase of their musical careers which was to record and release material as well as play any and all shows available. The debut EP "Visions Of Suffering", offering a heavy dose of melodic metal mixed with symphonic elements, was released on 03/20/2012 to positive responses. This event, a significant mile marker in the members' lives, gives hint to the success that is to come their way in the near future. Ashes Of Amber’s music is already being played on radio stations throughout the country and is cracking top 10 lists already. Combining heavy riffs, brutal breakdowns, heart pounding double bass, and catchy choruses, Ashes Of Amber is a tasteful mix for all fans of heavy metal music with a commitment to the music, to the scene, and most importantly, to themselves as they grow in personality and popularity.
