Former BANE OF EXISTENCE Guitarist Unveils New Band

PROSTRATION, the new Massachusetts-based thrash metal band formed by former BANE OF EXISTENCE guitarist Jim Ash, is currently seeking a bassist.

According to a press release, "Over the last year or so, Jim has amassed a large number of riffs and is looking forward to formulate them into whole songs and get back into the live scene. The new riffs are sort of a departure from what he was doing in his former band, these new riffs focus on his love for thrash and power metal.

"After Jim put a few ads online, the first person to respond was Keith Lambert, a local Rhode Island singer who has done stints in a few local bands, most notably FIST IN FACE. Keith's great lyrical writing and vocal style not only fits the music perfectly but brings the songs to a new level. The next person to respond to the online ad was guitarist Nick Emans, a Massachusetts transplant via Celina, Ohio, Nick had played in a few bands in Ohio, one notably being LOCK 14. Nick comes into the band with whole songs pretty much completed. Add Keith and Jim's tweaking and input of riff arrangements, and the songs take on a whole new life. Drummer Mike Fortunato, formerly of the local metal band UNDYING GRACE, came in and learned the band's current material in just one practice and has added a whole new element to the already existing songs."
