Ancient – The Cainian Chronicle


Out of stock

SKU: 588a891f9571 Category:


The first Metal Blade release from Ancient, a black metal combo fronted by Norwegian transplant Aphazel, The Canian Chronicle is a surprisingly mature and memorable collection of hellish invocations. Evil guitar riffs, frenetic drumming, demonic screeching, and orchestral backdrops place this squarely in the Scandinavian black metal tradition, but Ancient also displays an admirable penchant for exploration on longer excursions like the four-part title track and the eight-plus minute Song of Kaiaphas. And despite the largely unnecessary presence of his utterly disposable and ridiculous henchmen (pictured in spooky cloaks and corpse make-up — oooh, scary!), Aphazel himself is clearly not messing around. Track listing: 1. Ponderous Moonlighting 2. The Curse 3. Lilith's Embrace 4. Disiplines Of Caine 5. Zillah And The Crone 6. At The Infernal Portal 7. Cry Of Mariamne 8. Prophecy Of Gehenna 9. Song Of Kaiaphas 10. Exu 11. The Pagan Cycle 12. Homage To Pan
