When the Forest Calls

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Ancestors Blood have been around for like 8 years but they have only managed one full-length in that time. This is not it, this is an EP they put out a few years ago and is, at this moment, their last studio work. I hope they get something new out soon, because this is a really good disc.

This band play a style of Black Pagan Metal that is mostly mid-paced and epic-sounding, with big riffs and keys giving the whole thing a lot of space and orchestral sweep. The vocals are mixed very low, so they are mostly a kind of background gargle that makes this sound much more underground than the big, booming sound of the rest of the music. There is a ton of atmosphere, and the feel of lonely forests and twilit mountains against a northern sky gives this a mood and feel you can't fake. Powerful and gloomy.
