Heavy hitting riffs, powerful guitar solos, and a bona fide rock aesthetic; the six piece Belizean hard rock band Ascenthium delivers an explosive performance at every show.
Inspired by The Rock and Metal legends Metallica, Iron Maiden, Dream Theatre, & Avenged sevenfold among others; their sound can be best described as a trilling combination of classic and modern hard rock .With compelling lyrical compositions and intricate instrumentation the band speaks out on a multitude of topics in their music highlighting their struggle with mental health and their personal journey of dedicating themselves to being an independent force in the Metal/Rock community.
Starting out as local cover band in 2009 they played multiple venues around the country. The band entered and won Belize’s live show “Be the Next Superstar.” Simultaneously Ascenthium was one of 96 bands to compete in the “Yamaha battle of the bands” in Mexico City in the fall of 2012, placing third overall. They later gained a reputation as one of the top live acts in the country through extensive national touring.
Ascenthium defines success as promoting their genre and following their passion for music as self-sustaining, community driven, and independent entity.
