Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Of Sound Mind is the 2nd full-length studio album by American doom/ stoner metal act Ancestors. The album was released in October 2009 by Tee Pee Records.

Ancestors play an interesting blend of doom/ stoner metal and 70s psychadelic/ progressive rock and in addtion to guitars, drums, bass and vocals, there are both keyboards, electronics and an omnipresent organ in the music. The vocal style varies between raw and clean ( when the vocals are most mellow they remind me of the vocal style on the early seventies releases by Pink Floyd). The bandīs debut album Neptune With Fire (2008) was quite a mouthful, as it consisted of only two 15 - 20 minute long tracks of doom/ stoner metal with long passages of jamming and only limited use of vocals. Ancestors have developed their sound significantly since the debut and while most tracks on Of Sound Mind are still very long ( out of 8 tracks on the 71:26 minute long album, 4 tracks exceed the 12 minute mark), the songs are much better composed and more structured than the tracks from the debut album. There are still some long jamming parts on the album, and I have to admit that some of the parts in tracks like Bounty of Age and especially the 17:34 minute long The Trial go on a bit too long for my taste.

I wasnīt exactly expecting to be blown away by Of Sound Mind as I found Neptune With Fire a bit unfocused and lacking structure. Of Sound Mind has really surprised me though and itīs a very good album IMO. I find some of the more jamming parts unnecesarily long though, so there are minor flaws on this album too. A 3.75 ( close to 4 star) star rating is fully deserved. Iīll round it up to a 4 star rating.

4 stars Over the last few months I have briefly conversed with band guitarist Justin Maranga through blog comments and the odd email with regards to the band's first release, and this, their sophomore release - due out October the 6th on Tee Pee Records. Judging from his opinion and my own excitement, i ... (read more)
