I’ve been raving in recent months about a new two-song EP named Deathless Light by Germany’s Ascension, and as i noted in those write-ups, the band also have a new album on the way entitled The Dead of the World. Today, we’re fortunate top bring you a premiere of one of the new songs — “Black Ember”.

The album will be released by Season of Mist in North America on January 27, 2015, and is now available for pre-order at this location. As you are about to discover from this new song, the music is black metal of a very high order, music that’s savage and occult, dense and disturbing, but never less than fascinating.

It marks the band’s first album in four years, and it’s a welcome return. Check out “Black Ember” below.



  1. this album is sounding much better than consulamentum.

    • I know music is subjective and all, but I’m pretty sure most reviewers thought highly of consolamentum, and I’d heartily agree with them

  2. NCS gets all the best premieres. Now I want this album even more, though, and there’s still a little more than a month left until its release this Yule. I’ll probably wear out the “Deathless Light” EP in the meantime. =P

  3. This is so good. Ascension knows how to do epic right. I didn’t know about them before the Deathless Light EP, damn I look forward to the new one now.

  4. New songs from these guys, Napalm Death, Faith No More, and Black Sheep Wall, all in one day. Dunno what I did to deserve this boon.

  5. this is really good : )

  6. Sounds good!
