creeping around the wonder that is Facebook, I came upon a band located
in Poughkeepsie, NY named Ascensions. The band will be in Buffalo on
April 4 with Sworn In and I figured I should listen to them before
seeing them. I’m stoked that I did. 

Ascensions dropped a new single about two weeks ago
titled “Archfiend”. The track is a pure dosage of heavy metal that
delivers within its three minutes. The lyrics are powerful and are sure
to elicit hate moshing and fan participation during the live
performance. Vocalist Matt Locke’s screams drip with the same passion
the lyrics contain while guitarists Brandon Lane and Adam Konzen,
bassist Brandon Tyler, and drummer Joseph Merando contribute brutal
instrumentals that pack a punch.  
the band is unsigned and are working on developing a larger fan base,
they have staying power and heart. I’m looking forward to any new
material they release. Be sure to catch them on tour with Sworn In, they
have some dates in April so check it out!
