The band is not entirely Black Metal, so why review it? Could point a few reasons out, but let's keep to the obvious ones: they have hints of Black Metal on their music, and they are really good, so when the e-mail got in, Lachryma Christi couldn't say "no".
The band has been active since 2006, so it is actually quite strange that only recently they released something, since they sound so professional.
Lachryma Christi must warn you though, that they are more Death Metal. You can listen to many influences of popular bands such as At The Gates or In Flames. It is good, very professional, very commercial. The production is excellent.
From the Ashes has 8 tracks, two of them instrumental. It was indeed a good surprise. Really good stuff, very pleasant, very interesting and inspiring. Good vibes, very united, impressive.
