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 John on bass. It was then they realized they had found something special.
