Video – Insectoid Jam – Tribune rehearses Insectoid during their last jam before touring

This is Tribune‘s second cross Canada Tour since 2012, when they toured across the US and Canada in support of their last release Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts. 

The Vancouver quintet unleashed their concept album ‘Tales’ during October 2013 via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music. The release was inspired entirely by literature and features a wide array of influences from Homer to Mary Shelley to H.P. Lovecraft, to more extreme musical influences such as Carcass, Death and At The Gates. The band’s appetite for more melodic and more brutally heavy sounds to follow-up 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is demonstrated with their collusion of extremity and accessibility that bleeds into the melting pot and their fresh take of progressive death metal.

ANCIIENTS Stream New Song, Announce Tour Dates

Progressive rock/metal outfit ANCIIENTS premiered a new song from their forthcoming album, Heart of Oak. The new track, Faith and Oath is streaming here.

Regarding the song, guitarist Chris Dyck said,“Faith and Oath began lyrically with some combo ideas about the Mayan’s serpent-god beliefs and a strange dream I had about a snake-killing ritual. The serpent originally was representing the deceiver; as the song progressed and the vibe was realized it became our anthem for courage and strength. The chorus features Scott Ruddy from Weirding (killer doomy Vancouver band) on vocals with me. The proggy fast riff is what i like to call a “ninja riff”…looks hard, easy to play. Kenny’s solo here is mental and I love how Hannay and Boon shift the timing on the last 2 repetitions of the solo riff to a swinging old 3/4 beat. The outro has Kenny laying down some sweet Dave Gilmours. We all dig Pink Floyd…Gilmour is the man. Cheers.”

ANCIIENTS also announced their participation in the Death To All Tour. ANCIIENTS will tour alongside legendary metal icons Paul Masvidal, Steve DiGiorgio, and Sean Reinert: The Human lineup of legendary metal pioneers, DEATH. The tour spans 3 weeks, hitting a dozen cities across North America.

Regarding the tour, guitarist Kenneth Cook said,“We are completely stoked and overjoyed to be invited to play on the DEATH TO ALL tour. Chuck Schuldiner and Death are legendary, and it is an honor to be able to celebrate his life for a great cause.”

A portion of the proceeds will once again benefit the Sweet Relief charity, a non-profit devoted to helping musicians without insurance who are facing serious illness. A full list of tour dates on the TOUR DATES page.

Heart of Oak slated for a North American release on April 16, will be available on CD, limited edition double gate-fold LP, and digitally. It is available now for pre-order at the Season of Mist E-shop.

“One of 2013’s most anticipated albums”Decibel

“The foursome’s brand of metal is thunderous yet always focused on melody, striking a strong balance between commanding and catchy. Unlike much of today’s mainstream metal acts, these guys know how to write honest-to-goodness songs, showing tremendous discipline amidst all the instrumental flamboyance, and are primed to put their young peers to shame” Popmatters.com, The Best Hopes to Break Out in 2013
