Check out all the behind the scenes antics and mischief during the drum tracking for DA’s second album a few weeks back. Luke was locked away in the studio for five days tracking his parts and capturing sounds. There are heaps of snippets of various songs from their next album dotted throughout; you’ll want to watch this more than once! It’s 12 minutes long so grab the popcorn and shotgun the comfy chair!

Jennifer spent some time with the crew from Femme Metal Webzine recently and aswered a few questions about the first DA album as well as the upcoming one and what DA has planned for the future. To read what Jen had to say click here.
Once again Jennifer has performed with Melbourne’s Eyefear alongside front man Danny Cecati. This time around Eyefear were supporting Dutch symphonic metallers Epica who are currently touring Australia. Eyefear did a killer job priming the crowd of mad Epica fans for what was to follow. Jennifer of course added her powerfully high notes to help set the tone!
Luke Wenczel entered the studio this week to begin recording drums for DA’s follow up album to their highly acclaimed debut As The Truth Appears. All drums are being recorded in Melbourne at Toyland Studios with owner Adam Calaitzis at the helm. The band have assured us that photos, videos and even insights into their new album and the recording process will be documented and shared. This small picture is hopefully the first of many.
Divine Ascension would like to welcome Jason Meracis to the family as the band’s new bassist. Here are a few words from the man himself:
“I’d like to say hi to all the DA fans out there! I’m super excited to be joining DA at this point in time and being involved in all the new and exciting things the band has in the works currently. I’ve been a huge fan of and friends with DA for years now and I am really sad to see Simon leave the band. It’s an awesome feeling joining DA and I can’t wait to get out and start playing shows with everyone. Let’s see where this tour bus takes us! Cheers, Jason.”
“We are extremely excited about having Jason on board. He has been a friend of ours for quite some time and we have always admired both his ability as a bassist and his passion and drive to create music that pushes boundaries. Welcome aboard. Luke & DA.”
Jason’s first show with the band will be supporting Kamelot at the Hifi Bar, Melbourne June 7. Jason will also be featured on the band’s second album when recording begins shortly. Unfortunately, Jason no longer has his beautiful long locks so we will update his profile with a current picture shortly!
