ASHES OF ARES is a new band featuring Matt Barlow (vocals/ex-ICED EARTH), Van Williams (drums/ex-NEVERMORE) and Freddie Vidales (guitar/ex-Iced Earth). Barlow has checked in with the following update:
"Brothers and Sisters... it is with deep regret that I must announce Ashes Of Ares will not be performing at Rock Harvest this Saturday. I have been dealing with illness for the past week and it has not let up. I apologize to anyone who has planned to come to the show to see us, but I don't think that it would do anybody justice to have me croaking through our set. I hope that you guys can forgive me for this decision, but I promise to make it up to all of you soon. Thank you for your understanding."
Within months of their departures from the iconic metal bands Iced Earth and Nevermore, Ashes Of Ares came together with a renewed drive to create a sound which is a true collaboration of their personal influences, ideas and visions. Armed with the knowledge acquired through years of the writing, touring and recording cycle, and with the support of an army of loyal fans across the globe, Ashes Of Ares is poised to carve out a new legacy and stand alongside those who have helped pave the way.
