Ancient Heart Of Oak on Limited Edition 2LP
Heart of Oak is the stunning Season of Mist debut full-length from Ancients, one of 2013's most anticipated albums for good reason. The acutely modern, progressive quartet craft songs as nuanced and expressive as the range of human emotion, without eschewing their hard rock/heavy metal roots. Unforgettable tracks such as "Raise the Sun," "Falling in Line," "The Longest River," and "Faith & Oath" hit hard and resonate deeply. With Heart of Oak as their calling card, Ancients exude class and confidence of a band beyond their years!
Heart of Oak was produced by the band and engineered by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, Bison B.C.) at The Hive Creative Labs (Black Mountain, Nomeansno) in Vancouver in the winter 2011/2012, and mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Baroness, Clutch) at WestWestside music. The album artwork was drawn by illustrator Alison Lilly.
"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, The Best Hopes to Break Out in 2013
