From Ashes Rise
From Ashes Rise

From Ashes Rise returned to NYC on Monday night (8/15), their first NYC date since their reunion and since playing BB King's in 2005 with Subhumans and Leftover Crack. The show was one of three East Coast dates (two were in Philly with one as part of 'This is Hardcore'). The band plays Power Of The Riff in Seattle on 8/20.

I was fortunate enough to catch From Ashes Rise in their first go around, and Monday was probably my favorite performance by the Portland band. Taut, focused and fantastic, the crusty neg-hardcore band played favorites from Nightmares and beyond, including new material. No word on when/where that will surface, but keep your fingers crossed.

Support at Public Assembly came from a diverse cast that included Canadian thrash/grind favorites Fuck The Facts, surf-punks Night Birds, and brutal hardcore from Full of Hell. Fuck The Facts is always impressive live, with Monday's focus being on their upcoming LP Die Miserable with some stops to deliver older material like "Wake". Night Birds musically falls in the groove between Dead Kennedys, Adolescents and Agent Orange, and their live show is similarly energetic. Full of Hell may not be old enough to drink, but the band definitely knows how to rage; negative, fierce hardcore with black metal, powerviolence, and grind touches. Look for their new record on A389 soon.

More pictures from the show, including setlists, below...

this isn't full on sausage rock, but it's pretty close....

As long as it isn't lame indie rock, it's fine.

Greg is a bald sweaty fuck who needs to gtfo. Nobody needs your 400 lb gut in the front of the stage taking pictures of everything. Your photos fucking suck anyway.

Also what kind of fat shit eats an entire burrito in the time it takes to soundcheck a floor tom and snare?! Slow down and maybe you'll lose some of that belly.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 12:30 PM

^a fat guy in the metal scene? get out of here! next thing you're going to tell me is that he wears black t-shirts...

Night Birds are gonna take over shit in 2012. Get this wack-ass Cerebral Bullshit outta here.

The Birds are the real deal.

I love how dudes like 12:30 talk shit under the handle of anonymous.

Posted by Lucas Lee | August 17, 2011 12:52 PM

why do metal bands have such drama queen names?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 12:55 PM

shut up Lucas Lee you're a fat fuck too and nobody likes you

12:30 is pissed Greg fucked his girlfriend in the culo.

1:05 oops, sorry. His boyfriend, my bad.

12:55 - because they have actual problems, unlike your comfortable, wealthy self

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 1:15 PM

I am wealthy, thanks.

But seriously...From Ashes Rise?

lulz....Hot Topic rock.

@12:30 That's some uncalled for aggression. Keep going to these shows, maybe it'll help you get some of that rage out. Although I don't think Greg is going anywhere. I'm sure he'd be happy to use some of that weight to crush you with. He's also got plenty of friends that would be happy to make sure that happens in a quiet little corner where no one will here you scream.
See you around....

pussy fight?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 1:50 PM

@12:30 - maybe you need to gtfo (Jersey Shore much?) Greg is a fucking excellent photographer and good guy. Even when I can't get to a show I know in the morning he'll have great pics up on BV and you'll still just be an asshole.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 1:51 PM

damn - i saw "pussy fight" in the sidebar and thought they were referring to us. hey 1:18 - want to fight? sincerely yours (to fight), 1:15

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 1:54 PM

^another prominent sausage rock intellectual

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 1:58 PM

@12:30- Greg is a great guy and one of the best photogs around. He's taken amazing photos of more bands then you'll ever see. You're a fucking douche.

Posted by JL | August 17, 2011 2:06 PM

to all ya

seriously what's up with the black t-shirts? Are they like required?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:30 PM

yes they are LIKE required.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:44 PM

2:12: The guys that go "pussy fight at the bowl" and rag (haha, get it?) on anything that isn't indie lo-fi already get plenty a dose of that.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:45 PM

@2:30 - please don't type in the same retarded fashion as you speak. "like"? if you are a 12-year old girl, i apologize.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:46 PM

Night Birds rule! Ryan there drummer is sick!!!

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:54 PM

yeah, that's great and all, but no one has explained why you dudes are wearing uniforms.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 2:56 PM

@2:12 - ok, hold the phone. I originated the 'pussy fight' comments. I hate the indie lo-fi fucks.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 3:16 PM

^you're Tom?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 3:23 PM

What a faggotfest.

I mean the comment section.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 3:54 PM

Yeah, tone it down simpletons.

I'm honestly surprised the sweatercore tweefags aren't out and about making hummus jokes. Is Sufjan Stevens playing a show right now? Where are you my anorexic cuntlets?

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 4:52 PM

Everybody settle down relax and go snuggle up to your boyfriends beards.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 5:26 PM

3:23- i'm not tom. Tom was fighting and i called out 'pussy fight' and the rest is my annoying legacy... And if you want a fight, come out to barcade, you indie fuck.

Posted by Anonymous | August 17, 2011 10:02 PM

so now that the hummus and fat jokes are out of the way, how was the show?

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2011 12:25 AM

is it really necessary to a have a $2,300 70-200mm zoom lens when you are at the front of the stage?

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2011 12:33 AM

when you're greg, you are the front of the stage

Posted by Anonymous | August 18, 2011 11:02 AM

Wow someone has lens envy - shame your band sucks - you'll never get to see that lens pointing at you...unless BV is doing a special on douchebags.
