Frost Like Ashes

This Midwestern band was put together in 2001, intending to put their own unique spin on symphonic black metal. This is death-influenced black metal with prominant keyboards and a fair bit of impressive drumming. Some have labelled this band a poor man's Cradle Of Filth, which isn't too far off the mark as the vocals do resemble Dani Filth at times and musically early COF is a decent reference point. Lyrically, this band is quite Christian, which is a bit of a novelty, as black metal and Christian lyrics are seldom put together (see Horde for a rare example). So, Frost Like Ashes' stance is either a noble stand for their own beliefs, or an attempt to woo non-believers to their side. Add to this the fact that Kansas City is hardly a black metal hotspot, and that makes these guys' road a tough one to hoe. Tophet isn't groundbreaking for the genre of black metal, though Christian metal fans seem to be enjoying this more than secular fans.
