The Skinny: Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Vancouver metal quartet Anciients. Anciients has finished mastering their debut album slated for release in 2013. The as-yet-untitled album sees the quartet (Kenny Cook – lead guitar, vocals, Chris Dyck – guitar, vocals, Aaron Gustafson – bass, Mike Hannay – drums) forging together smoldering apocalyptic riffs, classic hard rock influences and unforgettable vocal melodies with an interplay praising both the natural and occult.

Regarding the signing, the band released the following statement: “We are honored to have Season of Mist release our debut, the fact that they chose us and believe in us means the world. We are proud to represent them and have them representing us as artists, and look forward to working with them for years to come.”

Formed in 2010, Anciients have quickly taken the Vancouver scene by storm. In their short time as a band, Anciients have already shared the stage with acts such as Pig Destroyer, Skeletonwitch, Manilla Road, 3 Inches of Blood, Boris, and High on Fire, and been invited to perform at the prestigious Sled Island and Noctis Festivals.
