3 stars Nth Ascension came to reality in early 2010, when a group of veteran musicians and friends from Blackpool, UK dediced to form a band and design their own progressive world.These were Michael Taylor on vocals/bass, Craig Walker on drums/percussion, Martin Walker on guitar and Darrel Treece-Birch, maybe the most experienced of all members with already a couple of solo albums out plus he became the keyboardist of Hard Rock band Ten around 2011.It was around the same time, when the British quartet released what to supposed to be a digital demo of their ideas, titled ''Frequencies of day and night''.

With this work Nth Ascension appear to follow the lines of a modern British Neo Prog bands, which show glimpses from the stuff released by the legends of the genre in the 80's, a bit upgraded with clean production and heavier segments ala later PENDRAGON and ARENA.The material is definitely well-composed and executed with plenty of different climates, helped by the choice of the band to write down long arrangements.Sharp guitar work, bombastic guitar/keyboard showering, some big symphonic and pompous sound on keyboards and pretty accurate vocal lines are the basic characteristics of this work, but all these elements will often meet a more laid-back approach with a certain PINK FLOYD mood: Soaring keyboards, light organ and emotional guitar solos.It doesn't break any new grounds, but the guys here could certainly compose some great music and play their instruments with sheer passion.As long as I am concerned, they never escape from the genre's classic influences and stylings, but you gotta love their dynamic and tireless performances, flavored by the heavier rhythms and pounding bass and drum parts, while the keyboard work is pretty efficient.''Return Of The king'' is a monster tune, no doubt, powerful symphonic keys over a doomy groove, hard-edged guitars and some neurotic synthesizers complete a short, but fascinating instrumental cut.

A band to keep an eye on.This demo leaves much to be desired, very solid, well-played and pretty interesting music, satisfying enough to add the band in your watchlist and look for their further works.Warmly recommended.

4 stars Channelling amalgam of early Marillion (Fish-era), Rush, IQ and Arena, the new British group NTH ASCENSION have delivered a debut CD 'Frequencies Of Day And Night''. Anyone who was in part of vibrant neoprogressive rock scene in the 80's era, can find elements of this release really nostalgic ... (read more)
