To say Left in Ashes are technically proficient almost undermines their ability. Fu**ing impressive is the best way to describe this skilful, shredding band. Julian Marcel has a myriad of voices that add multiple dimensions to this up and coming Death Metal band. Behind him is a cohesive, original unit that gels in spectacular fashion. Without going overboard, these lads really do write some incredible mosh recipies. Proof positive that the Floridian scene is still alive and giving birth to new bands that will carry the torch of their forefathers.
Generally, a Left in Ashes set can range anywhere from 30 - 90 minutes. Depending on who we are playing with and whether or not we are headlining the show....
