Ancient - The Cainian Chronicle 2-LP (Black vinyl)


Ancient are a hell of an underrated band. Two years after they released their highly acclaimed folk/black album Svartalvheim and an EP, they released this album which marked their initial change in style- the band cut out most to any folk influences, and instead, a more melodic approach was introduced to their sound, and by the time this album was released, the melodic sub-genre of black metal was saturated with quality releases- and this album is one of them.
