Although this seems like just another band to me, I do like several songs off of this album. Scottish is probably the best song off of this album. It’s quite easy to understand what is being sung and everything but I wouldn’t want to listen to this album all the time. I’d suggest listening to the songs first before buying any.

I heard of this band when the song "Scottish", and I thought when I heard this the significance of Slipknot and Killswitch Engage combined. When I heard the album, the insanity level was very high. Super riffs, nonstop use of double bass pedals, that was cool. This is something I would recommend not too highly but very much.

This was a band that I heard a lot about in certain circles, but hasn't been widely publicized. I heard people comparing the to Demon Hunter, which definitely excited me. When I got the cd, I was a little surprised that they did not sound anything like them. They sound more like a mix between Haste the Day and We as Human (if you know that upcoming band, if not you should check them out). To Die as Kings is a great debut album, containing variety and adrenaline pumping metal that's not too heavy, so you rock/moderate metal fans should check it out. Songs like Scottish and Fire that Kid are very good. I need to listen to it more to really pick out my favorites.

I read about these guys on Solid State's website about 6 months ago and just new from what they said that this cd would be good...but I didn't expect for it to be THIS good. The Ascendicate DEFINITELY has a bright future on the Christian metal scene!
Scottish,You And Me,We Didn't Click,Fire That Kid,and A Bit Of History are my absolute favorites...but all of the songs are very good!The Ascendicate would probably be for fans of:Slipknot,Underoath,Burden Of A Day,and Demon Hunter
