Formed in 2012, by former Iced Earth members Matt Barlow and Freddie Vidales, along with former Nevermore drummer Van Williams, Ashes of Ares came together with the drive to create a sound which is a true collaboration of their personal influences, ideas and visions. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2013, and they were soon after entertaining audiences with live performances in the USA and Europe. After the departure of Van Williams in 2017, Matt and Freddie have continued with their original vision, of creating a sound on their own terms, and sharing it with a world-wide base of fans.
