Greece's modern death & thrash metallers', DESCENDING, second album is out since October 2011; it is called ‘New Death Celebrity’, it was co-produced by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Fredman Studios, with its cover created by SEPTICFLESH's Seth Siro Anton, and was issued on Massacre Records. It can be downloaded here (Massacre Records) for even five Euros. DESCENDING have just released a video in promotion of ‘New Death Celebrity’; it was directed by the band's own vocalist Jon Simvonis and it poses a question:
“Through how many conditions, a human life has to pass, in order to make a full circle?” [It also offers an answer:] A video based on ‘New Death Celebrity’s concept, where the subject becomes a global figure after he passes away, witnessing his life going through the states of freedom, dogma, vanity, fame, loneliness, madness and finally death. A dramatic course of a life, lived in claustrophobia, presented as an allegory.”
DESCENDING was formed in 2007 in Athens, Greece by guitarists Theo and Constantine and vocalist Jon Simvonis, with drummer Nick Vell joining in later on. In 2008, DESCENDING released their debut album called ‘Enter Annihilation’ on Massacre Records in Europe and Spiritual Beast Records in Japan to positive reviews and feedback. Since then, the group has toured their home country many times over, has appeared at some major summer festivals, and has opened for acts such as LAMB OF GOD, TESTAMENT, GOJIRA and others.
DESCENDING features: Jon Simvonis – vocals, Theo – guitar, Constantine – guitar, Noir – bass and Nick Vell – drums
