Trivium exploded into the collective consciousness of metalheads with their 2005 full-length, 'Ascendancy.' Along with the success of the record, came the cornerstone track 'Pull Harder on the Strings of Your Martyr.'

Frontman Matt Heafy has offered an explanation regarding the meaning of the track. "'Pull Harder' is a look at a villainous tyrant; one who can simply kill and destroy on will, push his faith upon all, be hated by all other powers around - and still be loved by many that he rules."
