PROGRESSIVE DJENT BAND ASCEND THE HELIX TO RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM 'SPIRAL OF REFLECTION'


'SPIRAL OF REFLECTION,’ is the debut full length album from Californian progressive metal band ASCEND THE HELIX. The complex polyrhythms and heavily syncopated rhythmic patterns of djent are seamlessly incorporated into progressive song structures, leading the music down a path that is intense but wide open, allowing both light and dark elements to swirl together in a potent concoction.

After studying music at the prestigious UCSD, Adam Smiarowski began pursuing a new solo project, channeling his talents into songwriting. Adam was part of a band called PLUG back in the early 2010’s before taking a hiatus from music to focus on family and career. He returned in 2019, curating the debut album ‘SPIRAL OF REFLECTION.’ ‘SPIRAL OF REFLECTION’ is a multifaceted album built off the idea of developing a mix of scales not so commonly used in the mainstream, such as diminished and melodic minor scales. The album’s crunchy, dynamic guitar riffs, dense rhythmic section, and powerful vocals are all held tightly inside a production package that's mixed/mastered by Daniel Braunstein (SPRITBOX, VOLUMES).
