There comes a defining point in every band’s career when they realise their purpose musically.
That one moment when all becomes clear and the path before you suddenly becomes lit with a sense of purpose and revolution.
For Melbourne groove, thrash, melodic metal merchants The Ascended that time is now, and that song is The Dark, a thunderous slab of metal that combines the best elements of everything that has come before, wrapped in a tidy single package that captures the true essence of the band and their music.
Taken from The Ascended’s upcoming full length album that will be out in the coming months, The Dark tells a sinister story of escaping from your personal demons in a confronting and aggressive manner that only stresses the importance of its subject matter.
