Band Biography »
Chattanooga TN’s WITH FAITH OR FLAMES molds the glory of classic heavy thrash with a progressive hardcore touch to it with guttural vocals. Mix this with head smashing drums and guitar solos that encompass every possible style of metal, past and present, and you have the brutal sound of WITH FAITH OR FLAMES.
In December of 2004, Eric Weatherford, Eric Collins, Ian Sharp, and Andrew Core helped to start the band With Faith Or Flames. Trevor DeGaine was later brought on to help solidify the unique sound of the band, and with the completion of the bands lineup they are ready to take their music to the heavy metal masses.
Formed out of local bands in the area, WITH FAITH OR FLAMES officially cemented themselves in late 2004 with vocalist Ian Sharp, drummer Andrew Core, bassist Eric Collins and guitarist Eric Weatherford. The band has played with the like of Maylene & The Sons Of Disaster, All Shall Perish and Whitechapel, and want to take the world on to believe that all current world views are based upon faith, as no man holds any real answers to the mysteries of the universe. There are limits to the knowledge that mankind can currently possess, and without accepting this as the reality of our situation, mankind is doomed to a life of the flames of hatred and resentment. If you don’t have faith in yourself or what you’re trying to accomplish, you’re most likely going down in flames.
Their Stand And Deliver Records debut A Conquest Triumphant was recorded at Track Six Studios in Cleveland with Brandon Youngs tracking, mixing and mastering the album, and combining styles that are reminiscent to that of The Black Dahlia Murder, Three Inches Of Blood and the old school stylings of Exodus.
