ALBUMUp from the Ashes (Rawkhead Records)
SOUND On Burn Halo’s 2009 self-titled debut, ex–Eighteen Visions vocalist James Hart enlisted a crew of guest musicians (including A7X’s Synyster Gates) to breathe life into his songs. For their new release, Hart has put together a proper band, which ably delivers Burn Halo’s metalcore-tinged, radio-ready hard rock.

More about Burn Halo:
The sophomore album by Burn Halo, Up from the Ashes, was released on June 28 on Rawkhead Rekords (through Warner Music Group’s Independent Label Group).
Produced by Colby Wedgeworth, this new collection confirms Burn Halo's evolution from being essentially a solo project by former 18 Visions singer/songwriter James Hart to a full-blown, collaborative band. The music has grown too, and now marries the anthemic, radio-ready hard rock of their 2009 self-titled debut to metalcore flourishes reminiscent of 18 Visions.
Burn Halo is James Hart (vocals), Joey Roxx (guitar), Brandon Lynn (guitar), Aaron Boehler (bass) and Dillon Ray (drums).
