About “Far From Glory” EP
Descent’s “Far From Glory” EP is a testament to their musical journey, marking a significant resurgence in the metal realm. The band embraced a unique approach, combining classic and modern recording techniques. Recording the EP at Mike’s home brought an authentic touch to the music, as they shied away from excessive studio manipulation.
Extensive research and a meticulous selection of equipment, including Reaper as their recording software, were pivotal. The band opted for minimal editing on the drums to preserve the human element, using sample blending to enhance the sound authentically. Guitars and bass added depth and intensity to their music, while vocals posed a distinct challenge, incorporating multiple layers and inward singing for a melodic intensity.
Following the recording phase, DESCENT sought the expertise of Skulltone Studios in Germany to refine their sound. The collaboration proved instrumental in achieving a polished, professional sound that stayed true to their artistic vision.

DESCENT: A Band with a History, A Future of Triumph
DESCENT’s journey through the world of music has been an eventful one, full of twists and turns. It all began with Brian and Mike, who bonded over their love for music in their early teens. Heavily influenced by iconic bands like Metallica, Nirvana, Green Day, and The Offspring, they spent countless hours jamming in Brian’s garage, performing at house parties, and connecting with the punk and skate scene in Deep Ellum, Dallas.
Life took them on separate paths in 2002, with Brian playing in various bands and Mike venturing into different musical endeavors. But in 2018, Mike decided to resurrect DESCENT, joined forces with talented individuals like Kevin Rinders, Dylan Pike, and Joseph Kuban, and faced both loss and triumph in their musical journey. The band’s name, DESCENT, originating from a video game, holds a unique charm.
Today, with a full lineup featuring ‘Metal’ Mike Ames, Dylan Pike, Brian Knox, and Jamie Rodriguez, DESCENT is ready to conquer the music world once again.
