9/10 gbar Customer review, 10th May 2017
After leaving Iced Earth for the second time, Matt Barlow shows us that his voice is as unfaltering as ever with is new project Ashes of Ares. It is indeed a power metal album at heart, so expect powerful vocals, pummeling riffs, and thrashing drums throughout. With the help of Freddie Vidales (also formerly of Iced Earth) and Van Williams (Ex-Nevermore), Barlow shows he's able to master several vocal styles, on softer tracks like "The Answer" and "On Warrior's Wings" (which nods back to the epic Iced Earth ballads from the past), to the heavy, blistering "Move The Chains" and "Punishment". Since the announcement of his new band, 'Ashes of Ares' is an album that many loyal Barlow fans (and indeed newer Iced Earth fans) have been waiting for, and it happily lives up to all the expectations.
