The second studio album by Nth Ascension entitled Ascension of Kings, was released in late 2014 via Sonic Vista Music to much critical acclaim. Darrel Treece-Birch released his fifth solo studio album entitled No More Time on 19 August 2016, via Melodic Revolution Records[3], while in October of the same year, his band Nth Ascension released their third studio album entitled In Fine Initium.
