Not sure how many of you are familiar with these guys so I thought I'd up it. The Ascent of Everest are another diamond in the sea of post-rock artists nowadays. I'd say they are very comparable to artists like Yndi Halda, Caspian and a little bit of Laura thrown in for good measure. Having seven members from all across the country brings a lot to the table. Each member contributes his or her own style, which is then intertwined with the calming ambient sound of the band.
