Ashes Of Ares Frontman Explains Queensryche Influence

(Classic Rock) Ashes Of Ares frontman Matt Barlow has discussed the one album that's influence him more than any other, picking a classic Queensryche record in the exclusive Classic Rock video.

He says: "It soared above and beyond what other people were doing in that genre. Geoff Tate took his vocals to a whole other level and those guys just made a killer record. I get flashbacks when I listen to it."

Barlow who bowed out of Iced Earth because of schedule clashes with his job as a police officer formed Ashes Of Ares with Van Williams and Freddie Vidales. Their self-titled debut album was released this week via Nuclear Blast.

The vocalist recently said his new band would tour as much as they could, but added: "We're definitely not going to be Iced Earth no six months of touring." Watch the video here.
