Formed in winter 2002 in Finland, to express their tribute to heathen beliefs and commemorate ancient times with magic and rituals. This debut showed Ancestors Blood with all their trademark elements as they appeared on their demos, yet more mature and executed in the most professional ways. During the 50 minutes playingtime, you'll find a superb mix of storming and energetic aggression and bombastic atmospheres, with long traditional intros and outros.
This is not simply a pagan black metal album; it's a highly atmospheric and diverse esoteric heathen black metal album, sometimes reminding of Dimmu Borgir's "Stormblast" and Osculum Infame's first album, yet should also appeal to fans of Summoning for it's epic and bombastic sounds. Originally released in 2007, it's been out of print and unavailable for a couple of years now, so we repressed a few copies. Get it now if you haven't already.
CD repress out now, no bonustracks, no new artwork. LP also available.
supported by 29 fans who also own “Return of the ancient ones”
Albums like this give me hope for black metal as a whole. This is a breathtaking, sweeping behemoth that will take you on a journey you may not want to come back from. It’s one of my favorite discoveries of the past five years, and I can only hope that they make more CDs. 100% recommended! admiral_stiffplank
