Beautiful but brutal. Chaotic but calculated. It’s the balance between these
seemingly opposing foils that Toronto’s Ascendia so perfectly strikes with their
beastly brand of Hard Rock/Metal. Their mammoth sound spans the Atlantic,
uniting elements of North American metal with a foundation rooted in the
symphonic tradition of European metal, and is poised to appeal to even the most
discerning genre purists.
The four-piece – currently comprised of vocalist Nick Sakal, guitarist/vocalist
John Lov, drummer Billy Lov, bassist Stephen Kerr – has been amassing serious
attention and accolades from Canada’s heavy music community over the past
couple of years. They earned a slot on the bill for the Toronto stop of the 2013
Rockstar Mayhem Festival alongside heavyweight headliners like Mastodon,
Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, and Five Finger Death Punch. They’ve
been tapped to support the likes of Haken, Next to None, Into Eternity and
Single Bullet Theory, and now, they’re set to capitalize on the buzz with their
first North American Tour supporting Circus Maximus. The final date of this tour
will have Ascendia playing their largest show yet; Prog Power USA.
