From Ashes Rise are loud, raucous band that is a blast to listen to. I can hear influences from some of my other punk favorites in their music, namely Black Flag, Minor Threat and Bad Brains. I heard that they broke up a few years back, but Jade Tree Records has a handful of shows listed for them in March 2010. I hope they’re still touring, because I’d love to hear how they sound live. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find a link to “Mechanical” to listen to, so if you know of a link please post it in a comment, and I’ll add it to the post.
