Formed in 2008 under the name I, The Deceiver, Ascends is a five-piece group from Sion, Switzerland playing a powerful and electrifying mix 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.
Their debut album “Lost In Gravity” clearly demonstrates a band stepping out their comfort zone, finding a striking balance between melody and brutality. Mixed and mastered by Nicolas Delestrade from Novelists, “Lost In Gravity” deals with several themes, detailing the problems of the human being, its solutions and the consequences.
