Ashland Station – Temple of Mars (Review)

Ashland Station - Temple of Mars (Review)

I stand by my assessment of Grunge as one of the more misunderstood rock styles of recent decades. While depicted as tone-deaf metalheads, with a trigger happy approach to using their Digitech distortion pedals, many of the Grunge bands were capable of much, much more. 

Ashland Station is a group that draws inspiration from Grunge’s more progressive and doom-laden elements. Temple of Mars features a trampling beat reminiscent of Dopesmoker-era Sleep. Interestingly structured parts, and two-competing vocalists in the vein of Alice in Chain’s Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell. Once all the reefer smoke clears, what is revealed is a tight, inventive rock unit.
