What Say You Prometheus?
Ashmire's 2nd full length album is a long awaited release. It brings with it a new edge that is different from the previous releases, however it still maintains the basic ideology and song flow. Album Insert: This album was recorded entirely while on the road using a portable studio. While living, traveling, and recording out of my van, my desire to break away from society grew. The more I saw on my travels the more it fueled my retreat. But in time I began realizing it's importance and benefits. What Say You Prometheus? is to ask are we better off now with civilization? Has it taken us to a better place, or are we now cursed by our knowledge and self awareness. Fire brings with it warmth, comfort, and light, but enables us to do a great many evil things. To think that such a simple phenomenon has molded and shaped our psyche and perception, at last bringing us to our most complex state. Can we sustain? or will the very phenomenon that brought us here turn civilization to ashes?
