A statement from the band:
The Ascended are taking back Metalcore! The genre “Metalcore” has been claimed by bands that simply do not fit the label. We don’t have a stylistic home because so many bands have adopted the title. We fit closest to thrash bands in this modern era, which is definitely not a bad thing; they riff as we do, but back 15 years ago, in the glory days of true Metalcore, we would fit right alongside all of those bands.
If you look at the bands that really owned this genre back in the mid-2000s compared to the bands that are calling themselves Metalcore now, you couldn’t even have them on the same lineup.
We’re here to bring back the riffs to Metalcore, to bring back traditional breakdowns, clean vocal choruses. Everything we love about Classic Metalcore that fans of true Metalcore love, we’re bringing back with this record.
Mat Wale – Lead Vocals & Guitar
Corey Verhaegh – Guitar & Vocals
