A very hard and heavy sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and you can also hear a lot of modern metal elements in t he bands musical style while the vocals a re done in a screaming death metal fashion along with some growls and the fast sections also use a great amount of blast beats.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some songs bring in back up vocals while the riffs can also be melodic at times while also mixing in influences of prog metal and one track also brings in a brief use of synths which also gives the music more of a symphonic feeling while a couple of the tracks also brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Ascent plays a style of death metal that is in t he more modern direction of t he genre while also mixing in elements of prog metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes.
In my opinion Ascent are a very great sounding modern death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaos Bless" "Lucifer" and "Useless". 8 out of 10.
