    I agree it does have a hint of SotM but it's unique in its own way. It's quite close to Watain's Sworn to the dark as well.

    I agree. I don't really hear much DsO in this other than the occasional noodling with dissonance. DsO are far more experimental (this band isn't). still pretty solid straight forward bm. \m/

    Really good stuff. Waiting for the new album.

    I agree with the fact that it sounds much closer to SOTM than DsO, not only the vocals but also musically. They are one of the most impressive "recent" BM bands in my opinion. The balance between atmospheric parts and classic BM riffing is awesome, the song structures are perfect, high expectations on what's to come next...

    True that ... Especially since the vocalist is Ar (Michael Zech) from Secrets of The Moon .

    Everyone keeps talking about how DsO influenced they are, but to be honest I hear a lot more Secrets of the Moon in them

    This band is much better than I expected. A strong Deathspell omega influence with a strong twist of their own with the riffs. Very good material.

    Bandcamp Shaping Structures: This is quite the debut album! Those leads are and riffs are incredibly good along with the key work that add to the aggression. The vocals are fronted well and they stand their ground pretty good on every track. The way this band plays, I'm not surprised at all that they hail from Perth..everyone is born with guitars down there. Make Them Suffer meets Sensory Amusia type of sounding band! Well worth the purchase! \m/

    I also read that statement and I would be curious about whether a second full-lenght masterpiece will happen in the near future or not. Ascension is high above the average, both the demo and the EP were fucking killer, not speaking about Consolamentum which is a real gem of nightside emanations.

    "the TRUE Ascension is the power metal version" Get some of that excess estrogen out of your system bud (or alternatively, if you're a 'female,' shave that neckbeard)

    i feel that it's all awesome [2] Well, there are a few less-than-stellar acts, but overall the quality of that particular scene is almost unrivaled in metal as a whole, imo

    'Fire and Faith' is just a masterpiece. Ascension should make a split with Katharsis.

    "I totally HATE when 6 artist have the same name" No, you hate when the artist you like is not the relevant one.

    June 2013
  • dark_wisdom

    "Dragonforce is a great band" lol, should have stopped reading here. "people who dislike Dragonforce because they have not heard more than one song" That's because almost all dragonforce songs are the same fucking song, they not only use the same formula but they can barely make them sound a bit distinctive, not to mention the solos, I just laugh at how generic a Herman Ri Solo sounds, he simply uses the same patterns over and over. They may be virtuous musicians (if they actually are) but they creative skills are 0/10.

    I happen to think it is HILARIOUS that everyone is talking about some unspecified "Ascension" band without clarifying which genre they are referring to. This is great! So uhm, in agreement with the guy below, the TRUE Ascension is the power metal version, and it really annoyed me that the guy below made a jab at Dragonforce. Dragonforce is a great band, and it is EXACTLY what it wants to be, and the members are exactly as good as they think they are. If you don't like high-energy music with great melodies, soaring vocals, backup vocals, long guitar solos and technical playing, then fine, but Dragonforce hasw these qualities, all of which I love. The only "downside" is being forced to hear the endless whining of people who dislike Dragonforce because they have not heard more than one song, or because they cannot appreciate layered music or long guitar solos. Stop complaining. Listen to something else. Tens of thousands of bands from which to choose.

    Ascension are going to be playing North of the Wall 2013 along with ten others for only £15! If you're interested in supporting the Scottish scene, you should make a point of checking this out: http://www.thenorthofthewall.com It's really, really difficult for metal bands in Scotland to get anywhere because people here don't turn up for underground gigs.

  • SlaveOfN1l

    Not really a relevant comparison, considering the bands play totally different styles of black metal with only slightly shared lyrical themes, though I adore both bands

    "Not trying to insult." ... do you even read what you type? ... "What you said was just preposterously ignorant. " ok now you're just projecting. maybe you didn't like my words but my feeling is a true one. i don't get the same feeling from this music that i get from other similar style bands, but i still enjoy it quite a lot.

    Not trying to insult. What you said was just preposterously ignorant.

    September 2012
  • versionfiv

    ok . i'm glad my opinion elicited such a passionate negative response in a stranger over ten years my senior online. while you have my attention (which is obviously what you wanted by bothering to reply), I really don't have much to say to a 36 year old who behaves like an angsty teenager. take your own advice instead of jumping around trying to insult people on the internet.

    "I really feel that this band is missing a certain esoteric something. it's very good music, just... I'm feeling that quality isn't in their music yet. " Yeah, that makes all kinds of sense. People are entitled to their opinions, but for fuck's sake, at least TRY to make a legitimate argument. Missing a certain esoteric something? And what the hell do you know about the esoteric and what elements of it might be in Ascension's music. My guess? Nothing. Fuck off.
