The Danish metal band Ascendant played last weekend at the annual Elements of Rock Festival in Switzerland. Footage from their show can be seen below. At EOR the band also presented their new EP “Serenity”, The EP contains 4 tracks and is released in Europe independently, and will be released in the rest of the world via Shigionoth records. The EP is available for streaming on the bands bandcamp page now [link below].
“Serenity” is the follow up to “The Alteration” which was released in 2012.
Ascendant was formed in 2006 by the name Amorém. Back then Josua, Levi, Thomas and Kristoffer were the only members, but later in 2009 Jens joined on bass and backup vocals. As the years went by Ascendant did two single recordings and played several concerts in Denmark and Germany. Eventually they decided it was time to move on – Therefore they began working on their debut full-length album. During winter and spring 2010/11, 11 songs were birthed, finally recorded in BM MUSIC studios during spring/summer 2011. In connection with the release of the debut album in January 2012, the need for a name change was felt. That all together was the beginning of a new chapter.
The band consists of: Josua Poulsen – Vocals, Kristoffer Vammen – Lead Guitar, Thomas Langvad – Rhythm Guitar, Jens Gronhoj – Bass, Vocals, Levi Rauff – Drums.
