Biography :

Imagined in November 2009 by keyboardist Darrel Treece-Birch and drummer Craig Walker after both helping out a friend (Alan Allcock) with has band ‘Sonic Jam Project’ at a Charity concert in Fleetwood (Fleetwoodstock). Long time writing partners and friends Alan ‘Spud’ Taylor and guitarist (and father of Craig and Gavin) Martin Walker signed up in January 2010.

The first year the band went under the name Nth Degree but altered the latter after discovering other bands with the same name. The writing ‘core’ of Darrel, Alan and Martin has been in operation since the mid 80’s.

A demo recording ‘Frequencies Of Day & Night’ was issued as a free download option via website Aurovine in late 2011. 2012 saw the addition of brother to Craig, Gavin, on bass guitar, making it truly a family band. In 2013 the band began sessions developing what became the songs for Ascension Of Kings. In November 2013 the band signed to Sonic Vista Records and began recording their ‘official’ debut album ‘Ascension Of Kings’. The album Ascension Of Kings contains a 3 part suite entitled ‘Clanaan Chronicles’ which will run and occur on subsequent albums. This follows a story by Darrel Treece-Birch in the vein of Narnia/LOTR which sees the rescue/redemption of a tortured realm from an evil dictator by a Seventh Rider who ultimately ascends to be a prophesied King.

In 2015 the band departed from Aurovine and signed with American label melodic Revolution Records (MRR). In 2016 they released their second album ‘In Fine Initium’ to further critical acclaim and in the three year period collectively the members released 6 albums on the USA based label.

In February 2019 the band’s contract ended and they signed to Metatronic Records in order to release their highly anticipated third opus ‘Stranger Than Fiction’. A marked jump in production was added with the mixing and mastering skills of Neal Morse Band guitarist extraordinaire Eric Gillette.
