A better harsh vocalist could do wonders for them in the future. Formerly known as The7Method, a break-up forced members Eric Marlowe lead vocals and Chris Wheat drummer to retool and look for new band mates, eventually nabbing three other guys who were playing in various bands at the time. Their polished sound and maturity are evident in every growl, every pronounced lyric, and every guitar smashing chord. While a majority of bands spend two or three albums trying to perfect their own style and sound, The Ascendicate seems to have its act together on its debut. Their music is catchy, but not in the obnoxious way that can be typical of core bands.

Where the album really shines is in the instrumental department. Their music is catchy, but not in the obnoxious way that can be typical of core bands. The Ascendicate’s debut album has all the things that make the genre such a hated one in the first place: Competing for attention kingz only with fellow label-mates, but many other bands in both Christian and mainstream markets, The Ascendicate battles ahead of the mediocre while serving up some thought-provoking and catchy melodic tunes.
First and last songs are the best. The choruses are anthemic singalongs, but manage to be heavy and well-placed anthemic singalongs, and the vocals aren’t half-bad either. To Die as Kings is a real treat in what appears to be a jam-packed genre.

Check it out, one of the better things on SS. The Ascendicate have managed to put an extra-heavy, fairly unique spin on a genre that many thought could not be saved, and have done this without sacrificing any of the infectious catchiness and accessibility that made people buy millions of records from similar bands in the first place.
Ordinary Corrupt Human Lo.
At a quick glance, they aren’t appealing: Thanks to Marlowe’s singing and the frenzied manner of the music, To Die As Kings rises above most, especially as a debut. But those fans can once more scramble to their local music retailer for the debut of newly signed yet by no means rookie to the sceneThe Ascendicate.
This record is not for everyone: Irving Staff Reviewer December 11th Comments. I might post it eventually, but it will probably have the same rating. If you enjoy melodic hard rock, but aren’t necessarily a fan of the more chaotic symphonies often found in the genre, then The Ascendicate’s rocking debut is worth checking out.

An opportunity and playing time with renowned producer Travis Wyrick landed The Ascendicate on the Solid State label and, before too long, the release of their first album To Die as Kings.
