ASHES OF ARES Feat. Former ICED EARTH Members: 'The Alien' Video

November 9, 2018

ASHES OF ARES, the band featuring former ICED EARTH members Matt Barlow and Freddie Vidales, has released a video for the song "The Alien". The clip was directed by David Brodsky for MyGoodEye. The track is taken from the band's second album, "Well Of Souls", which is being released today (Friday, November 9) via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records.

Barlow comments on the song: "'The Alien' is a tribute to Earth's original superhero. It's the story of our hero's relationship with his family, and a world that may never fully realize, his strength is matched only by his love of humanity."

"Well Of Souls" was recorded during June and July 2018 and was mixed and mastered in August 2018 at The Terrarium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. All music and lyrics by were written by ASHES OF ARES except "You Know My Name", which was written by Chris Cornell and David Arnold.

Guest musicians on the album include Van Williams (GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS, ex-NEVERMORE) on drums and Jonah Weingarten (WE ARE SENTINELS, PYRAMAZE, TERAMAZE) on the keyboard intro composition.
