    Matt Barlow comments on the song: "Let All Despair" is the first song in the "Well of Souls" Trilogy. It is the introduction into a world that is on the brink of destruction. This is a time in the life cycle of Mother Earth known as the Purging Time. At this point in Earth's history, the human race is infantile compared to other of Her surface dwelling life forms. The trilogy is the story of humanity's introduction to the revelations of The Mother's direct connection with all of the life that fall under her care. Also, the understanding that when She enters into dormancy, all life on Earth are vulnerable to outside forces in our universe, that consume all souls left unprotected.

    -Barlow

    Lyrics:

    A Day Will Come When The Souls Are Gone
    An Old Man Dies And No One's Born
    The Earth Will Be But An Empty Shell
    Like The Time Before When The Giants Fell
    Like A Limb That Doesn't Know It's Gone
    This Embattled Race Will Stagger On
    When The Well Of Souls Lies Dry And Bare
    The Mother Sleeps Let All Despair

    A Time Will Come When We're Forced To Face
    What We Have Done Held In Disgrace
    Our Place In Time Will Soon Be Gone
    In A Wasted Land Dusk Without Dawn
    Taking More Than We've To Give
    If The Mother Sleeps We Can't Live
    When The Well Of Souls Lies Dry And Bare
    The Mother Dies Let All Despair

    The Wasted Lives And The Wasted Tears
    Won’t Get Us Back These Wasted Years
    The Earth Will Be A Living Hell
    Like The Time Before The Angels Fell
    We’ve Taken All That We Can Take
    There’s Nothing More To Bend Just Break
    As The Well Of Souls Lies Dry And Bare
    The Mother Dies Let All Despair

    All The Loss And All The Pain
    Won’t Make Our Mother Whole Again
    The Earth Will Be A Living Hell
    Like The Time Before The Angels Fell
    Every Life Linked To Her Soul
    This Purging Time Must Take It’s Toll
    As The Well Of Souls Lies Dry And Bare
    The Mother Dies Let All Despair

    ASHES OF ARES returns with the long-awaited follow-up to their self-titled debut album. "Well of Souls" presents an increased intensity and more wide-ranging sound which builds upon the foundation laid down by the first album and further solidifies Matt Barlow and Freddie Vidales’ partnership in writing. Former Ashes Of Ares member and close friend, Van Williams, contributes the hammering drum beats, while Jonah Weingarten sets the mood, from the beginning, with a stirring instrumental intro to the album.
