From Ashes To New Bring the Apocalypse with ‘Blackout’

Today, Pennsylvania-based rap metal band, From Ashes To New, released a new concept album: Blackout. Musically, this new album sees the band continuing to refine the hybrid sound that sets them apart, while also building on the concepts found in their 2016 debut, Day One.
