NEWS: Ascends search for solace in “Lightrays”!
Having originally formed in 2008 under the name I, The Deceiver, Ascends is a five piece group from Sion, Switzerland who specialise in creating alchemy between elements of Progressive Metal, Metalcore and Post-Rock.
Following a 5-track EP, numerous shows in France, Germany and Switzerland and some line-up changes, it was in 2015 with the arrival of Marco Romero (Nakaruga and ex-Breach The Void) on vocals and Simon Vuignier (Catch My Story) on bass that they decided to change the name to their current moniker. This new lease of life gave the band the opportunity to change their musical identity too, adding different textures and influences into their already eclectic sound.
Mixed and mastered by Nicolas Delestrade from Novelists their debut album “Lost In Gravity” deals with several themes, detailing the problems of the human being, its solutions and the consequences. It will arrive on 28th October with two singles in “Fraxured” and now “Lightrays” out now.
