In a new feature for Sunday’s, we’re going to be touring The Black Map of UK cities and name checking the cream of the crop of UK Metal talent.
First stop Aberdeen, Scotland. Power Metal is one of those genres of Metal that often surprises. Blistering pace and technicality of musicanship combined with mythical tales of Dungeons and Dragons. Ascension have been melting the ice of Scottish winters since 2010 and gaining ground on genre titans DragonForce and PowerQuest while touring across the globe’s seven seas. The bands current album “Under A Veil of Madness” is a masterclass. Check out single “Pages of Gold”.
