about

In 2013, Mental Architects climbed Malyovitsa peak, rising to 2729 meters in the Rila mountain range and there, on the spot, the band composed and recorded Ascend, the title track that would also serve as the harmonic base and focal point of this record.

"Ascend" includes 12 tracks. The first seven encompass the band’s ascension together; the eighth song is the one recorded at the peak of the mountain; and the last four wind down marking their descent.

With “Ascend,” the band shows that while the ascent can be exhausting and the descent may tear us apart, neither are impossible with the reliance of those closest to use. An attentive listener will easily be able to find this theme woven into the album.

The album is released in the US together wih Old Press Records - oldpressrecords.com
