Hard hitting metal band with a melodic singer. Cinders to Ascension blends the technicalities and sheer power that metal fans crave with melodic vocals and harmonies enjoyed by fans of all genres to create a truly unique sound.
Brad Campbell-Drums, George Platt- Bass, Grant Roberts-Vocals, John Ralston-Guitar, Steven "Mosh" Scott-Guitar,
After his former band, Digital Black went separate ways, lead guitarist Steven "Mosh" Scott joined forces with drummer Brad Campbell to write new music and refine the old. Joined later by guitarist Jason Garcia (also formally of Digital Black) and bassist George Platt, the band had the talent and potential that could be felt by all. After a year of hard work and practice, the band was completed when singer Grant Roberts joined. Within a month the songs were completed and Cinders to Ascension was born. Infused with youth, experience, talent, drive, melodic vocals, and heavy riffs, Cinders to Ascension is ready to show the world something it has never seen before...
A mere two weeks before their first show, Cinders to Ascension discovered that guitarist Jason Garcia would not be able to play because of circumstances out of his control. Enter guitarist John Ralston. In two weeks he learned the set list and proved to be a valuable member of the band. With Ralston's contributions, C2A not only headlined the show by selling the most tickets, but also placed first in the Battle of the Bands and advanced to the next round. Cinders to Ascension showed the world they were ready on 10/23/2011, but is the world ready for C2A?
On 12/3/2011, Cinders to Ascension competed in the final round of the Battle of the Bands at Downtown Music Hall. They again headlined the show, but that was as far as things went smoothly. C2A was lucky enough to get through their first show without any technical difficulties, however that would not be the case on this night. Half way through their first song, a broken string threatened the entire show. But after some minor tuning issues with the back up guitar and a few laughs with the crowd, the band proved why they belonged in the headlining position. Overcoming all that had been placed before them in only their second show and competing against some of the best local bands around, Cinders to Ascension lived true to their namesake. Winning the Battle of the Bands, the band continues their march towards greatness...
Since winning the Battle of the Bands in 2011, C2A has headlined two more shows, one at Soundstage in Conway, AR and another at Vino's in Little Rock. Focused on building a rapidly increasing fan base, the band soon garnered attention from a local radio station, 100.3 The Edge and Capital Management. Cinders to Ascension did a radio interview with Tina on The Edge's local music show on Sunday, March 11, 2011 and then they were off to Atlanta, GA to record their very first official single with Capital Management and Universal Recording Studios. Now back in Arkansas the band is currently scheduling more shows and writing new music.
