Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Gothic Knights - 2003 Up From The Ashes


GOTHIC KNIGHTS - UP FROM THE ASHES (2003, LIMB MUSIC)
John Tsantakis - guitars
Rick J. Sanchez - vocals
Mario Cosentino - bass
Frank Gilchriest - drums


Background
After my unfortunate experience with their label-mates Revoltons, I was hoping for a much more pleasant time from Gothic Knights. My faith in Limb Music had been dented, but 'Up From The Ashes' proves the label haven't completely lost their marbles. While not original in any shape or form, Gothic Knights perform American styled true metal with plenty of vigour. One of Gothic Knights closest relatives would be Riot, though you get a NWOBHM feeling as well.

The Songs
If you give this album a chance you'll find that Gothic Knights are fine musicans. John Tsantakis shines on guitars and Rick Sanchez performs well on vocals. Of the 11 tracks available I cannot wholeheartedly say each is a success as there are a couple of fillers, particularly during the middle stages, but there is enough quality to keep you interested. The tracks that get the most notice are 'Down In Flames'. Great lead work. 'Guardian Archangel' builds slowly with regimental drumming before the guitars kick in and the track rampages along. Great vocals from Rick. The final track 'The 13th Warrior' is a rip-snorter. Fast and uncompromising.

In Summary
Like I said, it isn't original but Gothic Knights are a band who know what they are about and perform with a hefty dose of intensity and passion. When they get it right they hit the bulls-eye. More consistency in the song-writing would have netted these guys a better score. However, for pure head-banging pleasure you should check out Gothic Knights.

01 Power And The Glory
