Ancestors- "Antler Wings" Video

Los Angeles Crimson/Camus-referencing progressive doom/sludge quintet Ancestors (not the powerviolence black metal band of the same name) released their second album Of Sound Mind in October. We posted its 14-minute “Bounty Of Age,” a track that delivers a mix of heaviness and air, crunch and crust, and smooth psychedelics via tempo and atmospheric shifts. Since then, they’ve released a split 7″ with Swedish rock crew Graveyard. Their contribution, the 6-minute “Antler Wings,” is an early (pre-Neptune With Fire) song they “decided to rework.” It’s more straight-ahead than what you might’ve come to expect from Ancestors — and all the more invigorating for it. The clip was shot by Whitey McConnaughy in the band’s practice space with a handful of Flip cameras. It works well to capture the energy.

The Ancestors/Graveyard split 7″ is out via Volcom. The guys are playing Roadburn today and stick around Europe a couple of days after:

04/15 – Tilburg, Netherlands @ Roadburn
