  1. We've had the first review posted on the album... 9/10 at PlanetMosh: http://www.planetmosh.com/ascension-far-beyond-the-stars-cd-review
  2. The very same ... well not really. Different lineup from the old roots of the band.
  3. Oh and cheers Milner! Dont forget to cast your vote for us for worst band this year haha!
  4. The bonus tracks are to offset the Saihan price system in Japan that means they pay much more for CDs than anywhere else ... Its to give that market something extra to make up for the price!
  5. Nope, we get nominated by cunts Enjoy the show and all the best... Ascension
  6. That... and the word "Fields" ... it's everywhere... But no offence to them - I don't mind their music but the lyrics are just terrible. There is zero effort there to make a legitimate song and I personally couldn't live with myself doing that - hence our songs do have real meaning and effort in the lyrics!
  7. Whereas I agree with the Dragonforce connection which is quite obvious (fast, guitar shreddy, power metal) I'd like to think we do something that they don't which is the effort we put into writing our songs. You can't really tell from this one song, but the album as a whole is very varied between our different writing styles and we put a lot of effort into the vocals - as opposed to Dragonforce, who sing "So Far awayyyy" in just about every song they have haha. Basically saying, fair enough on the comparison but I wouldn't consider us a Dragonforce clone by any stretch of the imagination
  8. Cheers for the comments guys ... we'll find out whether we can pull it off live later in the year but I wouldn't worry about it! Dragonforce's mistake was that they were binned trying to play live - you can't be binned and play power metal haha - the trick is to save that for after the show!
  9. Exactly, Redbattle's post was justifying that huge text vote and ticket costs which we felt were a complete rip off. Others have proved his whole financial strategy is flawed. So yes, it was wholly relevant.
  10. I'm going to refute this stupid comment, we are in no way bitter about Red Battle. Once we realised what was going on we didn't give a shit about it. Bitterness is not fuelling Ricki's post - it's a genuine wish to stop others wasting time on this competition. Like Dick said, if someone had made this post last year we wouldn't have wasted our time with it either. So if you want to insult anything, insult our nativity by thinking that someone genuine wanted to run a genuine competition to help bands and instead of a joke like this was.
  11. That's fair enough.... but what if they didn't win? Fortunately they did and it paid off...
  12. That's funny also because I don't remember them removing that from the T&C and was the main reason we thought it was all BS... why should an Aberdeen band be expected to take 50 ppl to Liverpool? Fair enough The Locals did it but I'm sure at great expense to themselves... made a nice load of money for RB though!
