Ascendor

Ascendor is a Heavy Metal quintet surging from the island of Gozo which was formed in July 2011 by drummer Paul Formosa who had been looking for members to form a Metal band. Guitarists Andy Fava and Joe Costa met up for a jam with Paul, from which all three perceived the apparent chemistry present both in the style of playing as well as in the writing of original material.
The trio started out by composing their first original songs as well as covering a number of songs by their idols and main influences, namely Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Slayer and Judas Priest.

Ascendor is a Heavy Metal quintet surging from the island of Gozo which was formed in July 2011 by drummer Paul Formosa who had been looking for members to form a Metal band. Guitarists Andy Fava and Joe Costa met up for a jam with Paul, from which all three perceived the apparent chemistry present both in the style of playing as well as in the writing of original material.
The trio started out by composing their first original songs as well as covering a number of songs by their idols and main influences, namely Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Slayer and Judas Priest. When a solid foundation was established, the band began looking to complete their line-up. In the fall of 2011 they auditioned Steve Muscat, who immediately secured and cemented his place as the frontman with his powerful vocals and stage attitude along with the energy and vitality added to cover songs (not to mention the infinite amount of body art, which compliments nicely the aesthetics of the band’s image).
By the turn of 2012 the band contacted Blasio Muscat, an old friend to take up bass duties. Blasio gladly accepted the offer and not only did he bolster the band’s sound with his solid rhythms but also brought in grooves which took the song writing to the next level.
The band needed to establish an identity which reflected each member as well as their sound. Having seen the final line-up the name Ascendor was chosen, reflecting the notion of a Phoenix reborn and ascending from the ashes in a similar way of how the band was formed from the remnants of previous local acts.
Ascendor prepared a set consisting of numerous covers as well as a handful of original songs which they delivered to the local metal fans on their debut gig at a local bar in Gozo. The band are now planning and playing further gigs in Malta and Gozo while working on the recording of their first album. The eight-track album titled 'Becoming' is expected to be released in early 2013. In the meantime the band have released their first ever single titled 'In the Hands of the Enemy', giving just a little taste of what the album will be offering.
