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.
