Vancouver, BC. progressive/sludge metal band ANCIIENTS returned with their long-awaited sophomore album 'Voice of the Void' on Season Of Mist records October 18th, 2016. A heavier and harder-hitting album than their debut, 'Voice of the Void' raises their game with mind-melting, frenetic guitar work and a more explosive percussive attack. Tracks such "Serpents", "Pentacle", "Incantations", and more are prismatic; bursting with heavy riffs in every shade and color without sacrificing the quartets heavy rock roots. ANCIIENTS are the archetype of a modern, progressive heavy band and 'Voice of the Void' is a dynamic listen carrying the spirit of metal's forerunners.

ANCIIENTS were recently added to the long list for the 2017 Polaris Music Prize but barely missed out moving to the short list on July 13th. The 2017 Polaris Music Prize winner will be announced on September 18th.

ANCIIENTS have announced a headlining Canadian tour. The full cross-country tour begins on Aug. 4 in Vancouver, and a list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.
