Ascalon- Ascalon


Differing sources have this three-track either coming out in 2013 or 2015. Either way Paul Rote (who I enthusiastically follow on bandcamp) had it right when he wrote of this Manchester, UK band's self-titled demo:"...I had every record that sounded like this. Metal Church , Savatage ,Omen , Axewitch , Oz , Killer and on and on and on". This is traditional/power metal four-piece is yet again another up and coming band looking at the past for inspiration. What sets them apart from the rest of the pact though would be their thrash leanings and the fact that they already have a bit of credibility to their name thanks to a 2012 split that they did with Asomvel, Eliminator and Wytch Hazel. As the demo is less than a cup of crappy coffee at Starbucks this three-track EP seems like a real no-brainer for fans of N.W.O.T.H.M. and the like...
