Week #16 of our journey across The Black Map of the UK Underground Metal Scene takes us to Derby. The home of Download Festival, famous for giving us Sociology, Lara Croft and the first ever water works system is also the home of DJent infused progressive tech-metal (or as The Derby Evening Telegraph described them “Technical DJent”) crew From Her Ashes. The band have a pair of EPs in 2016’s “Through The Darkest of Days” and 2013 debut “In The Absence Of Light” that seamlessly blend melody with brutally crushing riffage that sets them apart from the pack. UK Tech-Fest bound this summer, the band have previously supported the likes of Carcer City and The Colour Line. They have a warm up show at The Salty Dog in Norwich on 4th July. You can check out both of the bands EPs over at bandcamp. Here’s debut live video for “Exit Strategy” from “Through The Darkest of Days” to give you a flavour of their sound.
