Founding member Scott Gross of metal rock act From Autumn To Ashes didn’t expect himself to be standing upon this very Earth. Scott explains â€œIt was September 13th 2007 and I was on I-95 in New Jersey. The rental car I had broke down and I pulled over to the shoulder of the road. I got out of the car to walk to the back and thatâ€™s all I remember.â€ Another car had crashed into his pining him between and causing massive injuries to his leg, back and head. â€œThey were going to call me in as deceasedâ€ he reveals. â€œFor the past two years I have been chained to a bed, going to physical therapy daily and undergoing multiple surgeries for my leg which is mostly metal at this point. I also have two torn rotator cuffs which I still have to have surgery for. 98% of the time the pain is off the scale, music definitely helps to take my mind off of it.â€
By expressing the pain he dealt with, he formatted a whole another style of music, going down the acoustic route with his new formation, Lullaby the Storm, being a mellower effect, than his previous works, which consisted of heavier material. The band itself though, only comprises of three current members, Scott, Mari-Elaina, Jeff, and Greg Odette all of which have brought this acoustic pop-rock out into the format that is “3 Lanes Painted Red,” a collection of tunes that take on a whole another effect as mentioned above, showcasing these musicians style in a whole another spotlight. The music alone is very dramatic and captures the bandâ€™s emotions through each and every note played, instrumentally speaking, and the instruments play their part â€“ by sounding a lot like Taking Back Sunday meets Alkaline Trio.
Overall this side effect of music showcases itself to be nothing more than a over dramatic sensation of music that puts the listener at complete ease and relaxation.
