From Autumn To Ashes "Holding A Wolf By The Ears" CD
"Holding A Wolf By The Ears," From Autumn To Ashes' fourth studio album, finds the band playing with a level of passion and intensity not seen since their 2001 debut, "Too Bad You're Beautiful." The most recognizable sign of this reinvention is Francis Mark's recent shift from drummer and vocalist to full-time vocalist, a result of the departure of former lead singer Benjamin Perri. Over the course of the album's 12 tracks, it becomes clear that for the band, more has changed than just a voice. Fans will still find the searing guitars and bone-crunching rhythms, but there's a new duality - a much heavier sound buoyed by the focused melodies that introduce the listener to Francis Mark's surprisingly dynamic vocal range.
