Ashes and Iron is an indie-rock/post-rock influenced metal band from St. Louis, Missouri. They rarely play outside their hometown and mainly focus on writing/recording material which is distributed for free via their website www.ashesandiron.com
Ashes and Iron began in the summer of 2006 with three members of now defunct Hardcore/Metal act This Incredible Machine (Thad Martin - Drums, Chris Denton - Guitar, & Kenny Snarzyk - Vocals & Electronics), former Ring, Cicada guitarist David Miller, and former Calico System bassist Justin Haltmar. After Haltmars departure in the winter of 2006, original This Incredible Machine bassist Dave Lawrence joined the group. The band spent the next year writing the Silens EP and recorded it over the following year. In the Summer of 2007, shortly after tracking finished, David Miller moved to NYC; however he continues to collaborate despite a 1200 mile distance. In the summer of 2008 guitarist/singer of Caporetto, Ian Mahan joined on guitar. Snarzyk left the band in early 2009 to pursue his project Fister. In mid-2010 Dave Goodman of Ring, Cicada and Dibiase joined on bass.
Ashes and Iron are currently instrumental and are working on writing new material that will be available for download in 2011.
