AS FOLLOWS is the brain child of Ben ASARO, former founding member of the power-progressive bands URSHURAK, TWILIGHT ODYSSEY, and PHANTOM ISLE and a veteran of the NYC live music scene.

AS FOLLOWS was originally intended to be a side project to PHANTOM ISLE but as the idea took shape it quickly became an important manifesto to the way Ben thought his brand of progressive music should be created. Instead of having a band with permanent members and a set sound, AS FOLLOWS would be a collaborative project wherein basic riffs where jammed on with other musicians, the bits and pieces would grow and then be connected together into musical mosaics without a central theme or traditional verse/chorus structure.

Being a guitar player primarily, Ben also wanted to get the focus back onto extended guitar explorations and solos with less emphasis on cutting away material, instead keeping the ideas 'whole cloth' and improvised with room for expansion when played in a live setting.

The first release from AS FOLLOWS was 'THE EYE OF FIRE AND FEAR'. The music was written as a collaboration between Ben and ex-PHANTOM ISLE drummer, Luigi GENNARO. After those initial jams were expanded upon and fully fleshed out, Ben arranged and played all of the instruments as well as handled the recording duties.

After the music was complete, Ben collaborated with singer/musician Gary PICKARD and together they completed the lyrics based on Ben's idea of a concept piece based upon the early works of E. A. Poe.

'THE EYE OF FIRE AND FEAR' was completed 14 months after the first rehearsal and was released digitally in April 2014.

Ben is currently collaborating with guitarist David FALCONE and drummer Michael MORALES on the follow up release.
