Tue, Apr 16 2013: ANCIIENTS
Progressive rock/metal outfit ANCIIENTS’ Season of Mist debut, 'Heart of Oak', is hitting North American stores today! The album is also available as Digipak CD, various colored LPs, jewel case CD and shirt / CD bundles on Season of Mist’s e-shop.
Named "One of 2013's most anticipated albums" (Decibel) and "thunderous, commanding and catchy" (popmatters.com), ANCIIENTS' 'Heart of Oak' is poised to become one of early 2013's most anticipated albums. The modern, progressive quartet craft songs as nuanced and expressive as the range of human emotion, without eschewing their hard rock/heavy metal roots. Tracks such as "Raise the Sun", "Falling in Line", "The Longest River", and "Faith and Oath" hit hard and resonate deeply and with 'Heart of Oak' as their calling card, ANCIIENTS exude the confidence of a band beyond their years.
Additionally, ANCIIENTS recently announced their participation as part of the forthcoming 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. 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's an honor to be able to celebrate his life for a great cause." A portion of the DEATH TO ALL tour proceeds will once again benefit the Sweet Relief charity, a non-profit devoted to helping musicians without insurance who are facing serious illness.
