Check out NYC/London-based, prog/alt metal project Ascending Dawn and the new track “Inside the Silence,” from the upcoming album, Coalesce, due out December 1, 2017.
Coalesce is “solidly progressive with a good marriage between the pop influences of Marlain and the progressive metal riffs from the rest of the band.” (Femetalism) It was co-produced, mixed and mastered by Jochem Jacobs (ex-Textures) at Split Second Sound in Amsterdam. A graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Music, previous vocalist of a top-charting Greek pop band, Hi-5, representative of Cyprus in the Eurovision Song Contest, West End performer and background vocalist for world-touring acts, central figure, Marlain Angelides (vocals/songwriter) brought her cosmopolitan experience from Greece by way of London to New York. Whilst in NYC, she has been involved in musicals, Shakespeare, voice overs and front-woman of the all-girls Led Zeppelin band, LEZ ZEPPELIN, showcasing her wide range of vocal talents that drive the heavy yet melodic sound of Ascending Dawn. Guitarist Owen Rees and drummer Mark Weatherley remain in London, contributing their writing and production of Ascending Dawn from afar as Angelides paves the way in the US. Sputnik Music raves, “the experience of this masterpiece ends too soon. But there is still the “repeat” button.”
Stay tuned as Ascending Dawn rises in the ranks with Coalesce and continues to make waves with “its sick metal riffs and Marlain Angelides’ powerfully passionate vocals” (Time Lord) on the new tracks and videos leading up the the album release.
