Ancient - Night Visit

Posted on Tuesday, August 31, 2010

After the release of the disappointing Grandiose Mad Bloodfiends album, these guys just seemed to fade into obscurity. Well, that must’ve pissed them off a little, because I’m hearing the best material this Nordic Black Metal horde have penned since 1996’s The Cainian Chronicle. The band have refined their sound so well. For one, there is a lot less fucking around. Not to say there is a total lack of weirdnesssss, but for the most part, everything is tighter, and the album’s flawless production really brings out a razor-sharp heaviness in the riffs, not unlike the feel of Dimmu Borgir’s Death Cult Armageddon LP. An astounding return to form for the band, and it’s nice to have them back. Suggested mix selections: “Rape the Children of Abel,” “Night of the Stygian Souls,” and “The Truth Unveiled.”
