Ritual Ascension Festival, the first gig of its own kind to be held at Panchasayar Club, Kolkata, on 4th August 2012, is a revelation of demiurgic insight of cult of Putrid Ascendancy, a Kolkata based Metal circle, takes its unconsecrated shape through several ritualistic congregations and an excruciating desire to hail "True Fucking Metal" in its true spirit. Drawing the enormous nostalgic inspirations from the 80's bay area gig movements and scene, RAF is how Metal should be celebrated, by its true followers and die hard maniacs, despising gimmicks, crushing all passing trends, mutilating everything Metal is not at all about.
Ritual Ascension Festival is a true brotherhood gig, a small demonstration of how Metal should be hailed in a city that is infamous for endorsing enough pseudo Metal successfully to young metalheads and misleading them incessantly.
The objective of Putrid Ascendancy always has been to put an end to the misrepresentation and bastardization of Metal that feasted on ignorant city poseurs relentlessly and Ritual Ascension Festival will be one of the means to spread true message or right awareness to metalheads of Kolkata.
Ritual Ascension Festival will uphold the true flag of "real" Kolkata Metal scene and serve you the best Extreme Metal bands the city has to offer. The festival will also see the rise of many new bands that are formed mostly in late 2011. With enormous appreciation and astonishing support from Metal fraternity, RAF seems like a new positive dimension unfolded in front of metalheads in Kolkata who will not be misled anymore.
