Bands That Should Come Back: Scatter The Ashes

Image

Scatter The Ashes was a post-hardcore band. They were formed in the summer of 2001 and signed to Epitaph records. Devout/The Modern Hymn is the only album from them. Musically it is a very dark, with atmospheric rhythms with bone-jarring resonance that is not only haunting, but catchy, appealing. Imagine Joy Division meets the Refused. The band was rooted in punk rock and evolved beyond their years.  In 2006, they officially broke up. They were artistic and believed in their music and it showed. Their debut album has been in constant rotation in my cd player. Take a listen and you’ll hear why.
