Southern California’s Ancestors continue to cast an overarching light fog of gloom over the the world in anticipation of their first full-length release in six years.
Their new album almost verges into shoegaze territory; displaying a sweeping, all-enveloping sound wave that lives up to MetalSucks’ description of “a melodic type of doom that’s both easy to listen to and absolutely heart wrenching.”
The Band comment
"It's been a long journey from the last album to here, for those that have been waiting for it we commend your patience and thank you for your support.
We're thrilled to finally be able to share the album init's entirety, which is altogether elevated experience to hearing the individual songs (or so we think).”
Hailing from Los Angeles, the now-three-piece Ancestors create mighty, modern soundscapes, taking their time in writing their fifth album, and first with Daniel Pouliot (Horse the Band, Silver Snakes).
Indeed, the band steps out from the expected; proggy strings (“Into the Fall”) and jazzy bass lines (“Release”) prove that the three piece is not confirmed to any specific genre of music. The use of an Aeolian-Skinner church organ, however - an instrument with close to 1,941 pipes - woven throughout the album, is proof that these excursions are not blind experiments, but landmarks of a sonic path that this band has carefully chosen.
