Somewhere between sheer, apocalyptic heaviness and precise riffing, lays otherworldly Anciients—a Vancouver. basedrockjuggernaut forging crushing heavy metal evocative of veterans High on Fire and contemporary soniccraftsmen,Opeth.

Anciients have combined fuck-off-huge chords with mind-altering riffage that takes you on an unfamiliartrip.Theireponymousdebut (available as a free download via bandcamp) reeks of colossal harmonies, shattering rhythmsectionsanddistinct,powerful vocals.

This quartet—made up of: Kenny Cook (Lead Vocals, Guitars), Chris Dyck (Guitar and Vocals), Aaron“Boon”Gustafson(Bass)and Mike Hannay (Drums)—started as the brainchild of Cook, hoping to find a more creative outlet forhismusic. Fullyrealizedonce Cook and Dyck’s creative efforts were combined, the band’s line-up solidified and Anciientsreleasedits self-titled EPengineered by Shawn Penner and mastered by Stu Mckillop.

Fast forward a handful of impressive shows and praises in local music rags, we now find the group preparingtheirfulllengthalbum with help of Jesse Gander at the Hive Studios.

What to expect from the band’s next release? More of the same hard-hitting, meticulously-crafted riffs lacedinpungentmetalglory. The Hashes of the Pharaohs continue to burn as Anciients revels in its mysterious power. « hide
