Female fronted metal has never sounded like this before. Divine Ascension‘s blend of thick, driving rhythms, atmospheric layers, intricate solos and powerful, emotive vocals has already gathered many new listeners and supporters from all corners of the globe.
Divine Ascension take the genre of female fronted metal to a whole new level. The band continue to surprise metal fans the world over with its iconic breed of melodic/progressive metal. A definite force to be reckoned with in the global metal scene, Divine Ascension hail from Melbourne, Australia and are led by the enigmatic Jennifer Borg – a voice once heard, not easily forgotten. DA released their second album, Liberator, on November 21, 2014 to high acclaim from critics and fans alike. Liberator broadened the scope and attention that began with DA‘s dynamic debut As The Truth Appears (2011).
Their debut album’s successes were many, bringing in rave reviews and allowing the band to play alongside symphonic power metal masters Kamelot during their first ever Australian tour in 2013. The release of Liberator brought further accolades for the band and their sound and saw Divine Ascension’s reach grow further. The band embarked on their own national headlining tour of Australia in 2015 and supported German power metal masters Blind Guardian on their entire Beyond The Red Mirror Australian tour. Later that year, Divine Ascension then headed to Europe supporting the legendary Stratovarius alongside Gloryhammer, on an extensive 31 date European tour, capping off the busiest and most successful year for the band to date.
Divine Ascension are soon to release their third studio album and begin touring once more. “We’re out to get ya!”
Soon metal fans will be split into two groups, those who have heard Divine Ascension and those who are about to.
