New Ascension Song + Intro!

Recommended Posts

Been a while since ive posted any Ascensiony stuff here haha!

well basically, just uploaded our new song and its Intro

" moongate " is the songs name =]

If your gonna have a listen, i highly suggest listening to the intro to,

unfortunatly myspace compression has made the track well fuzzy >< which is nae good! but its still one of our best songs weve created as a band, and i hope everyone likes it =]

If you do, take a wee listen to our other tracks, Blackthorne, Fortress and our cover of Stratovarius's song - Stratosphere!

MySpace.com - Ascension - Are gig hunting everywhere! - Aberdeen, Scotland - Metal / Metal / Metal - www.myspace.com/ascensionbanduk

Hope you all enjoy =]

My feedback is that:

a) you should post the topic in the correct forum

b) you should use "lol" considerably less

I gave it a listen and all I will say is that it presents me of an image of five boys in their late teens huddled round a candle-lit table playing Dungeons & Dragons.

Why do metal bands always sing about the Gates of Hell?

Now, Electric 6 aren't metal.

'Moongate Intro' was a bit like Raining Blood by Slayer to begin with, then it went all Spinal Tap! You know that bit in the film with the tiny Stonehenge set? It reminded me of that.

Didn't like any of the songs at all, sorry.

yeah i knew this already, we've never had luck promoting ascension here!

but i just thought id see if there were any hidden power metal fans out in here who might not have seen/heard our new re-energised material and shows

Hey Ricki

I'm not too keen on the moongate intro, I think it should perhaps should be shorter? I think it might be good to get an atmosphere in a live set but it just seems too long and boring just listening to it.

I think your recording doesn't do you justice to be honest. I really like your band cos you do an ace live show. I think the levels need to be fixed on 'moongate', the guitars should be a lot more forward in the mix, the drums are far too prominent. The guitar solo is good at about the 4 minute mark cos it the sound is brought forward. What I guess I am trying to say is that this recording does not convey the energy of your band; it just needs better production/editing.

Cheers

Jayne

Thanks for the feeback jayne =]

yes i agree our recordings never do us justice, they are all home recordings, and i guess they will do for demo purposes for now, but one day we'll record a proper studio production.

Im not a fan of powermetal (well apart from some Helloween). Really like Moongate, very catchy.The intro did nothing for me.

I think that the production doesn't do you justice, the kick needs brought up a lot. The guitar tone is good though, so is the vocals.

Should really get round to giving it a listen, hope it's longer than 10 seconds and not a waste of oxygen.
