You’ll remember when we featured Ascendency’s Ascending Primacy demo last year on Demo:listen, calling them purveyors of “muscular and armored” riffs. Now the Danish trio, featuring members of Phrenelith, Taphos and more, have returned with four more epic tracks of deathly might and black magic as once conjured in the lost days.
It’s our pleasure to host this early and exclusive premiere of Birth of an Eternal Empire, the new mLP from Ascendency. Originally released on cassette by Night Shroud Records, Birth of an Eternal Empire sees its vinyl, CD and digital advent this Friday from German kingpin Iron Bonehead Productions.
The band writes: “The first entry in a planned trilogy, Birth of an Eternal Empire presents the beastial awakening and uprising of a despotic tyrant. Through whose eyes, we are offered four tales of fiery conquest and bloodshed. Each and all signifying the consolidation of power, the coming of a dark era and a great ascendance to absolute sovereignty. Witness the birth of a new order! Witness the usurpation of the throne!”
