Description: Ascendancy, the group's second album and their first on Roadrunner Records, is filled with carefully crafted songs that surge with energy, passion and originality. Like their solid 2003 debut Ember to Inferno, Ascendancy is rooted in '80s and '90s thrash, recalling the glory days of Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and Testament. But the new disc doesn't stop there, incorporating aspects of melodic death metal and even prog-rock.

Trivium: All Albums Ranked Best to Worst! (8 music items)

"The band was still fairly young when recording "Ascendancy", but it's the prefect second album for them. They evolved in style and substance since their debut album, started to define their "signature sound" with this record, and they still had that fresh passion to go all-in. It's brutal and catchy, and most of the songs are amazing...and are still played in concert to this day because people love them."
