New Zealand’s preeminent stoner/doom heavy metal band, Arc of Ascent, released their third  album  of  psychedelic  heaviness  on 10th  April  2017.  The  band  will  rock  Napier’s Cabana on Friday 26th May as part of their tour to support the album. Prepare yourself for a live set of relentless energy and power. With a truly heavy sound, the new album Realms of the Metaphysical gives fans more  of what they love. This is showcased in the debut track Benediction Moon which incorporates the  haunting  sounds  of  the  sitar  alongside  their  trademark  heavy  grooves. Realms  of  the Metaphysical is  released  through  Clostridium  Records  (Germany)  and  will  be  available  on  CD, vinyl, and online. Founded  in  2008  by  bass  player/songwriter  Craig  Williamson,  Arc  of  Ascent’s  signature sound  is  fleshed  out  by  Matt  Cole-Baker  on  guitar,  and  drummer  Mark  McGeady.  In  a  five-star review, Six Noises described the new record as having “chanted vocals and driving bass interlocking with gritty riffs, thumping percussion, and brain-liquefying solos throughout the album, Arc of Ascent’s strengths as a rip-roaring power trio are in full effect”.  Recently  Arc  of  Ascent  has  shared  the  stage  with  the  likes  of Unida  (USA), Kings  Destroy (USA), Radio Moscow (USA), Monolord (SWE) and Ufomammut (ITL), and in 2017/18 the band is looking to take  their  brand  of  heavy  riffing  offshore,  with  gigs  in Europe  including  Greece  and Germany.
