Ascendance Records is a new UK-based label set up by Lee Barrett and Sam Grant [writer, promoter, broadcaster, interviewer for Sonic Cathedral online].

Since 2000 the female-fronted metal scene has been growing in popularity. Now widely recognised as a genre in its own right, female metal vocalists are mastering all styles from power metal to Gothic, progressive and black metal. What was once a sparse handful of bands has grown exponentially and now the industry is becoming increasingly aware of the prowess of females in metal.

Ascendance Records signs artists from all walks of female-fronted metal for worldwide promotion and distribution. Given the founders’ innate interest and direct contact with the genre, the label has strong belief and commitment to every band signed.

Ascendance Records heralds the next step in the evolution of the metal scene.

    Advice : don't buy stuff from their online store. I bought a t-shirt 3 months ago, they took my payment, but I never received the shirt and now they won't reply to the 10 messages or so I've sent them since then. They fucking stealed my money.
