"Peterborough Examiner"

"Asleep Behind the Flame is a first rate band with a unique sound all their own and I for one am glad to have been there, because then, when they are all big stars, I can regale my friends with tales of 'I saw them live first.'"
- Chris Collins

"Mel In Toronto"

Asleep Behind The Flame gave a strong performance at the Reverb on November 14, 2008. The performance was tight, energetic, and intense. Frequent and demanding rhythm changes combined with powerful vocals and striking guitar riffs kept the audience engaged and wanting to hear more. With their high quality heavy alternative rock music and a new demo in the works, this four-piece band has what it takes to cause a stir in the Canadian music scene.

Asleep Behind The Flame is a ferocious strike, approaching all angles with all of it's ammunition. This ruthless force is composed of foot-to-the-throat riffing, merciless beats driving the bottom end rhythm enough to herd wild buffalo, and a combustible outrage of timeless lyrics. This foursome wants to expose your will, and bathe in it's demise.

Hailing from Peterborough, ON, ABTF have had some serious detours along the path of their inevitable success. Having grown up with each other in high school, Tony Davis, Joe Callens, and Jay Byrd were convinced that their unique, heavy sound would make an impact on all that matters in the industry. They completed their entourage upon moving to Toronto, with bassist, and former snake charmer, Anthony Lombardi. Asleep Behind The Flame was permanently born. They have quickly made some serious headway in the Indie market in the GTA and throughout Southern Ontario.

From having shared the stage with Major Canadian Rock acts; Three Days Grace, Big Sugar and Hail The Villain, ABTF have surely shown the maturity and perseverance it takes to become an ever-evolving entity in a truly grimy industry. All that's left is for them to rip it apart.
