Artist of the day: Ashes To Wings
You might remember Tampa's Adrift as the project of founding Cannibal Corpse guitarist Jack Owen and some other guys. Well, turns out those other guys have chops, too. And they've decided to show them off.
Former Adrift members Dean Pskowski (vocals) and Jen Parker (bass) have teamed up with Nicky Resh (guitar) and Jason Taylor (drums) to form Ashes To Wings, a metal outfit that's just getting its feet wet with shows around Tampa Bay.
Pskowski's powerful voice calls to mind Maynard James Keenan of Tool or Serj Tankian of System of a Down, giving Adrift (and, one would presume, Ashes To Wings) an eerie, looming vocal presence. You can check it out for yourself when the band plays with InViolentSleep Friday night at the Pegasus Lounge in Tampa. Tickets are $5-$7.
