Vancouver’s ANCIIENTS are the featured artist in the latest installment of “Converse x Decibel”. A mini-documentary about how the vast woodlands and epic mountain ranges of British Columbia influence the band’s elaborate and progressive songs is streaming now at Decibel Magazine.
ANCIIENTS recently announced new North American tour alongside TESSERACT and SCALE THE SUMMIT. The “Altered State North America 2013” tour is scheduled to start on Thursday, October 10, in Edmonton, AB and will run through the United States and Canada before ending on October 29.
The band have also seen their first-ever appearance in Guitar World as part of the magazine’s September issue. The band’s interview with Guitar World can be read here.
ANCIIENTS are touring in support of their debut album, ‘Heart of Oak‘. The critically-acclaimed record is streaming here, and available now on Ltd Ed. digipack with 2 bonus tracks, jewel case CD, Ltd Ed. double gate-fold Lp, and digitally.
“At its best, Heart of Oak is immediate and electrifying, an album that suggests Anciients’ half-prog, half-pop metal is bound for big stages” – Pitchfork
“Anciients harness the power of prog for a greater good, making music you might actually remember. Scratch that — will remember. These guys are gonna be big” – Stereogum
“The band are nothing if not highly ambitious, as the wide range of sounds demonstrates, Anciients shifting from stoner rock to blasting death-lite to tricky, tech-y prog like no one’s business” – Exclaim
“Heart Of Oak is an impressive many-sided record that will please a diversified group of music fans. Devotees of all things metal and rock will find something that Anciients does to love” – Stereokiller
