Living With the Ancients
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Metal Blade Records +
Retrieving Ouija boards for a second seance, this co-ed Canadian coven pick up where their 2008 debut left off -- with a burnt offering to "The Great God Pan." Their pagan credentials thus asserted above Uriah Heep organ doom, they break out flutes while sludging out Sabbath riffs in a rainstorm. "Morning of the Magicians" gets funky like Jethro Tull having a jungle-bungling bad trip; "Night of Augury" darkens Procol Harum's cathedral. Then, after a 40-second renaissance-folk "Witch's Dance," they end with "Daughter of the Sun," a gorgeously grimy 10 minutes of Altamont acid-metal.
