The Ascent of Everest is metaphor for ambitious goals. Partly the synthesis of genre and fusion of musical traditions but also to articulate abstract emotional places and states of being. Some will be quick to pick out bits that could be called post-rock, doom metal, electronic, shoegaze, neoclassical, post-minimalist, etc. but shy from saying what the ultimate result is - this is about the journey into unknown, fiercely new territories. Is Not Defeated, the ascent of Everest's first release in nine years, is an album from a tight-knit community of musicians who assembled, lived together, and wrote music together in non-traditional ways. it's an album of intricate compositions and sincere passion, culminating in an emotional and cathartic zenith. Ascent Of Everest will preview their new album with a free, all ages live performance at Grimey's a couple of weeks before the new album is released. We'll have stock on hand for Is Not Defeated so you'll be able to get the new record early as well as get it signed by the band!
