Biography

Back From Ashes is a progressive metal band forged in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix, AZ. Over the past 10 years, the band's members worked on separate projects, and it wasn't until 2004 that everything fell into place. It started with Mike and Jason, guitarist and songwriter. Through a number of grueling auditions they finally found Dave on the drums, and Matt on bass. It was then they realized they had found something special. The music they created is both raw and powerful, with jaw-dropping drums, hard-edged guitar riffs, and ferocious vocals delivering lyrics that reach out to the audience, grab it by the throat, and obliterate conscious thought. To see them is an experience, and the reaction to their shows has been more than even they could have expected.

Lyrics

Father Fiction

Written By: Back From Ashes

Distant voices of what I’ve heard
The malcontent of hate
Smoked up memories of my creator
Telling me what to see

Take the hand of this little child defy your god unholy man

He lectures loud telling me nothing
His intentions lack integrity
Mold this young man into something
Something he’ll never be

Handed down my beliefs in nothing the failure of truth a fallen man

Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again
Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again

I hate the man inside you the viciousness of your sins
I try to run away now, no one can understand
I hate…your will…die now…for your sins!!!!

The preacher is out twisting the truth
Making his decree
Do as I say not as I do
And your sins will wash through me

Sentenced by me you suffer my hatred the death of a guilty man

Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again
Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again

I hate the man inside you the viciousness of your sins
I try to run away now, no one can understand
I hate…your will…die now…for your sins!!!!

I just try…I just try…To live again

Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again
Hold me down (Rape Me) Hold me down (Save Me) Hold me down again
