NEWS: Daath begin the ascent…

Go big or go home has been the mantra of the returning Daath and with that in mind they have guest guitar solos across numerous tracks by Dan Sugarman (Ice Nine Kills), Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Arch Enemy), Mark Holcomb (Periphery), Dean Lamb (Archspire), Per Nilsson, (Scar Symmetry, Meshuggah), and Spiro Dussias (Platonist), with renowned video game composer Mick Gordon (Doom Eternal) contributing sound design and synth to “Purified By Vengeance” on their upcoming new album “The Deceivers“. A 3rd May release via Metal Blade Records, the Americans have sacrificed “Ascension” ahead of time for your viewing pleasure.

Guitarist Eyal Levi comments: ““Ascension” explores mindless conformity and how easily one can fall victim to coercion. From the first hit of the drum opening, the song is a powerhouse that delivers a journey through larger-than-life orchestrations fused with flattening metal devastation. This song is a beast. Riffs for days, brutality and groove, there are soaring solos all over the place plus, it’s peppered with parallel universe Danny Elfman moments.

Jesse Zuretti add: “Rarely is it true to be taken on a ride with music; let ‘Ascension’ prove its validity by guiding you through warping passages, orchestral fidelity, uncommonly creative musicianship, and uncontested power. ‘Ascension’ is the year’s mindfuck, carrying the listener from different realms of musical identity, showcasing talent to points that’ll make you think it’s otherworldly. Of all of the tracks you’ll hear in 2024, this will be one you’ll be revisiting the most whilst scratching your head in disbelief.”
