Hey there

Just thought some of you may be interested in this, a Band from the UK called Ascension! we are inspired greatly by ultima, particularly in our songs Moongate, and Blackthorne. We also have a few songs in production called The Avatar, and By the virtues, heavily inspired by ultima

Our EP " The moongate " is out now, and is also heavily inspired by Ultima, although i will say, not all our songs are about Ultima haha :P youll see a lot of Ultima References in our artwork and our songs, and i just thought some of you may like it :) the first song you will hear on our myspace is called Time for war, which isnt about ultima, but the song moongate heavily circulates around Ultima VI so hopefully some of you will like it :)

Hope you enjoy :)

Wow nice =) I used to call the Moongates the PMS (public moongate system), based on how you had to wait for changes lolol =) and um based on other moody things I've witnessed *ducks out of way*

Would be cool to have a band like Ascension at a UO Town Hall or a "MythicFest". ;)

That would be so awesome if folk came along for that

although i have to tell you, That date is part of a 3 day festival, so tickets are a wee bit pricey :P due to blaze bayley and others playing that night

but im sure you can get a friday only ticket :) not entirely sure how much that is though. if your really keen to come though, we promise not to disappoint ;)

we're very showmanship orientated and alongside the ultima inspired songs we do a lil bit of ultima themed acting to, in places heh :P

Hey all, it's Doc here - guitarist in Ascension and the source of all the Ultima inspiration! I used to play U4 - U9 all the time when I was younger... brilliant games and story!

Anyway I just thought I'd post some of the lyrics to the songs so you can see the story we are telling! This one is for Moongate, which is inspired on the opening scene from Ultima 6 where the red moongate rises and the Avatar is captured by the gargoyles...

Moongate - Ascension

VERSE 1
The night's sharp fall had stirred my fear
As the storm surrounds and strikes the ground
In a flash of light the gate appeared
The red floods all around

BRIDGE 1
I stand before my destiny
One step is all it takes
I've waited long now for this day
Drawn in, i can't escape

But in my heart I know it’s true
This it my path, to see it through
I leave my love and hate behind
Step through the gate to find…

CHORUS 1
I must leave this world behind
for a journey through space and time
I feel strong in the moon gate's shine
I know I must leave my home
But I don't know the way to go
I am drawn by the moon gate's glow

VERSE 2
Now I've arrived, my quest begins
and I look to find, the place I'm in
Is a strange new world, I have to grasp
My life begins at last!

BRIDGE 2

CHORUS 2

That's bloody fantastic...

While I have to admit the vocals do need quite a bit of work when it comes to keeping tone, I absolutely love it! If your album won't be out in my own country, I'll be importing it!

Keep up the good work and I'll be looking forward to seeing you guys tour Europe. :)
