Embers, formed in 2004 from Oakland, CA has emerged on the fringes of the North West Cascadian Black Metal scene. They have shared the stage with bands such as High on Fire, Eyehategod, Ludicra, Nachtmystium, Wolves In The Throne Room, Withered, Nux Vomica and many more groundbreaking crust and metal acts.
As a serious project, Embers has completed 3 extensive European tours that spanned over 11 countries. They have also completed one National tour and eight West Coast tours.
Embers has been noted as one of a number of prominent San Francisco Bay Area metal acts to feature women. The fact that current and past members of the band are female is notable due to the historic lack of female representation in heavy metal music.
Heavily inspired by the visual arts, Embers is also known for their beautifully illustrated album covers, banners, poster art, and T-shirts.
Priorities for this inspired and motivated project include continuing the collaborative effort to write epic, emotionally charged music, and creating a steady stream of new material.
