Seattle has long been a melting pot of great music, a veritable cauldron of creativity. The city has given the world bands of the diverse caliber of Heart, Sanctuary and Soundgarden. It is a place where aural alchemy is real and bands know they are in a magical place to create music. Such a band is Arisen From Nothing, even their name is powerful, conjuring forth images of the phoenix in the flames; a potent symbol of strength and rebirth. Inspired by Lamb of God, Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed, Killswitch Engage, guitarist Troy Elmore describes Arisen From Nothing’s sound as “aggressive, driving, groovy, powerful, brutal.”
He is stoked for fans to hear AFN’s new EP Broken, which draws inspiration from the state of the world around us and is a strident call for unity.
“There’s a lot of subject matter fans should be able to relate to so I’m hoping it will be received well. Fans will appreciate the new AFN sound, and new direction the band is going in. We wanted songs that had moments of musical complexity but maintain a groove that gets your toes tapping and your head banging.”
Live, AFN are untouchable.
“You can expect a high energy show and a band that is accessible. Hanging after the gig with friends and fans has always been part of what AFN is about and we feel it is important to let them known how much they are appreciated. Life is a busy thing for most folks so when they choose to spend their time and hard-earned money for a night out, the least we can do is give them the best show possible…People can expect to see a very in-your-face, tight and aggressive performance, we are confident we can walk onto any stage and deliver a performance that fans will not forget.”
