Ascendia – the Lion and the Jester


Toronto’s Ascendia is a beautiful blend of dichotomies – described on their bio as ‘beautiful but brutal’ and ‘chaotic but calculated’. When you listen to their debut release The Lion and the Jester, that’s exactly what you hear. They’re local talents serving up some of the best symphonic metal on this side of the pond. If you’re a fan of Nightwish, Within Temptation, or Kamelot, and want to support the homegrown talent of a few great Toronto lads, check out Ascendia.
