ANCIENT – Full album stream

“Back To The Land Of The Dead”, the highly anticipated comeback of renowned extreme metallers ANCIENT, is now available for streaming in its entirety at Terrorizer UK.

Check it out at this location exclusively for 1 week:

The album will be released via Soulseller Records on 16th September – coming on jewelcase-CD, limited 2-LP, limited digipack-CD and in digital versions. 

“Back To The Land Of The Dead” is a comeback for Ancient, 12 years after the previous release “Night Visit”. The album was recorded in 7 different locations, in Norway, Denmark, Italy and Greece, mixed in Elfo Studios in Italy, mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studio, and produced by Ancient. With Nick Barker behind the drumkit, the album is, as expected, the most aggressive and fastest album of Ancient, yet still with a good amount of clean guitars, and various dark atmospheres as the band is known for. The music was composed by Zel and Dhilorz. The lyrics on the album are all written by Zel, many of them speaking about the devil, the spirit of the devil and how it influences us in various devastating and destructive ways, as well as some fantasy lyrics, still somehow connected with the “old Nick subject”. The album cover shows a hooded figure coming back to “the land of the dead” to wake up the “spiritually dead people there”. The album is 66 minutes long and has 13 tracks, including a cover of Bathory “13 Candles”.
