Heart Of Oak is a music studio album recording by ANCIIENTS (Tech/Extreme Prog Metal/Progressive Rock) released in 2013 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. The music on "Heart of Oak" is a very eclectic mix of different metal and rock genres and therefore quite difficult to tag correctly. But I guess a mix of progressive metal, some post- and sludge metal elements, and a few nods toward death metal, black metal, hard rock and traditional heavy metal aren�t a completely wrong description of what the music sounds like.

Anciients ‎– Heart Of Oak. Label: Season Of Mist ‎– SOM 250D. Format: CD, Album, Digipak. Tracks 1 to 9 recorded at The Hive Creative Labs. All guitars on this album recorded using Olde Crow cabinets. Tracks 10 and 11 were previously released on Snakebeard in 2011. Recorded at District Four Studios in 2010.

Whether or not Anciients have asked themselves this during recording isn’t really important. What is important is how they managed to perfect this stale and rehashed 'prog metal' sound. What do I mean by this" Well what the Anciients have done here is nothing short of excellent, despite being indicative of the non-progressing progressive trope. They have tried to do what bands do all the time: blend a multitude of sounds to create a juxtaposed mess of music to garner a progressive label.

Vancouver metal quartet Anciients' debut album is as excessive as that second "i" in their name, but they compensate for excess with excitement, playing with the hookiness of Baroness and the warm sticky riffs of Torche. It’s easy to imagine what initially lured the diverse label to the band: The tracks on Anciients' nine-song entrance, Heart of Oak, are hyperkinetic but heavily anchored. They surround the hooks you might expect from a Baroness anthem with tangential and technical playing that trends toward prog rock but stops short of Opeth or Enslaved’s maze of redirections. Anciients excel at muscular and agile guitar solos, while the guitarists, Kenny Cook and Chris Dyck, also volley the vocal duties, jumping from death metal bellow to pop-metal lift. It’s exciting stuff, really- often complicated.
