Patrick Saad’s Top Release of April 2013
Anciients – Heart of Oak
Recommended: Overthrone, Falling in Line.
As an American Sludge Metal band, Anciients has several big bands to look up to; Mastodon, Isis, Intronaut, Down, etc. What’s interesting though is that “Heart Of Oak” is just their debut album, but it’s so brilliantly composed that it immediately stands out as a strong contender for this year’s top albums! Expect something alongside Mastodon’s catchy songwriting and Intronaut’s heavy riffs.
The entire album can be streamed here: http://anciientriffs.bandcamp.com/
For fans of: Mastodon, Intronaut
