“…it seems to stare Death in the face, manifesting that terrible unwavering gaze and the crushing desperation it provokes…” – No Clean Singing

No Clean Singing today draws back the curtain to unveil Ascension, the bestial fifth studio full-length release from old-school Polish death/doom metal outfit WINGLESS, streaming the album ahead of its release this Friday on Selfmadegod Records.

While at an early stage of development, the band’s music oscillated more around the cutting edge of modern metal, with the passage of time, their compositional style has gradually shifted towards classic death and doom metal, which is boldly apparent within the first moments of their new album, AscensionWINGLESS is an ensemble perfectly aware of what and how they want to play, by consistently following their idea of creating death/doom metal, without even avoiding inspirations from metal artists of the 1980s and ’90s. Ascension delivers a conglomerate of heaviness, darkness, and a unique atmosphere particularly clearly reflected in the lyrics.

Ascension was recorded between June and November 2023 at Studio67 produced by Grzegorz Luzar, mixed and mastered by Dominik Burzym at Studio67, and completed with cover artwork by Rafał Wechterowicz and layout by Michał “Xaay” Loranc.

WINGLESS’ founding guitarist/bassist Grzegorz Luzar states, “The new album, Ascension, reveals from the first seconds a conglomerate of heaviness, darkness, and a unique atmosphere particularly clearly reflected in the lyrics. The sonic apocalypse contained in these nine tracks will linger in the memory of anyone who dares to check out what Ascension hides. This album is a consistent realization of the idea of how to play death/doom metal music in 2024 and keep it fresh.”

With their advance stream of Ascension, No Clean Singing writes in part, “…Ascension is indeed bleak and bitter. Embracing some of the classic traditions of doomed death metal, it seems to stare Death in the face, manifesting that terrible unwavering gaze and the crushing desperation it provokes… it’s evident that WINGLESS have succeeded in combining punishing power and electrifying ferocity, while also generating an atmosphere of emotional panic, pain, and ultimate desolation — and doing that with a relatively clear production (but not too clear) that allows each performer’s contributions to stand out.”

Krakow-based WINGLESS was formed at the beginning of 2012 by a lineup of well-experienced musicians who have performed or are still performing with some other groups being part of the local metal scene. Having been led by guitarist/bassist Grzegorz Luzar since its formation, drummer Piotr Wójcik joined in 2018, and in 2021, longstanding vocalist Olaf Różański was replaced by Michał “Xaay” Loranc (Redemptor). The lineup also expands to include bassist Pascal for live performances.

WINGLESS has created five full-length releases over the past decade, including three independent albums – Hatred Is Purity (2014), The Blaze Within (2016), and Triada (2018) – before releasing their 2021 album Nonconform on Selfmadegod Records, who also now delivers Ascension.

WINGLESS has played countless gigs in club and festival venues alike. 2018 saw the band’s consummation of onstage performances in Summer festivals, as WINGLESS was invited to perform a concert as headliner at North-Eastern Open Air in Krnov, Czech Republic and more. The band has shared the stage with Christ Agony, Tortharry, Depresy, Moribund Oblivion, Quo Vadis, Chainsaw, and many more.
