3 stars Groove metal + Opeth. The album art/covers are good. AncIIents' Heart of Oak is not a bad album, but most of the songs aren't what I expected. The album opening, Raise The Sun, start in a progressive way. Yeah, the intro is fine. But I did not like the growls and screams from the band. The songs are very similar to each other in my opinion, not in the riffs, but in the mood. Overthrone is an overall good track. Falling in Line is an extreme stoner/sludge metal. Nothing special about it. The Longest River, Giants, and Faith And Oath, sounds pretty much like the same. The final two tracks are the stronger. Flood And Fire is cool. But the last and ending track, "For Lisa", is the masterpiece of the album: a Pink Floydesque instrumental. It's a great great track!
