2 stars Ancient is a strange band in the Norwegian black metal scene. For some reason, they were never accepted into the "good company" and lived on it's fringes. They did it their way.

Their first release, this legendary '7 which trades for fortunes on Ebay, is a pretty standard slightly folk music flavoured black metal release. It has two songs. Both of them melodic. Ancient's sound on this '7 is not a esoteric as Burzum/Mayhem. It is more in the direction of Dimmu Borgir. Both the songs here are rather melodic.

The quality is rather good for black metal from that era. It contains the usual black metal vocals, guitars, bass and drums though. This '7 is strictly for their fans though.

2.5 stars
