2 stars The so far final album from this underwhelming Norwegian black metal combo.

I do not get the feeling this band was much missed when they stopped releasing albums back in 2004. I get the feeling this album is going to be another Cradle Of Filth copycat when the female vocals arrive at around one minute into this album. But this album branches out in other directions too. From more standard black metal to slightly symphonic, melodic and avant-garde black metal. The result is a pretty varied album. It almost feels like a cabaret, this album.

While the album is varied in styles, the quality is not great. It is pretty standard and Ancient does not add anything new to the black metal scene with this album.

In other words, this is a half decent album which underwhelms me.

2 stars
