Canadian heavy rock outfit ANCIIENTS have released a brand new single!
The track, titled Serpents, is taken from the band’s highly anticipated new record Voice of the Void which is set for release in October!
Listen to Serpents here:
Speaking about the new track, guitarist and vocalist Chris Dyck says, “Our new track Serpents started off with Kenny and I sitting in his garage waiting for Boon and Hannay to roll up for a writing session. I was messing around with a riff, when Kenny mentioned that he had one just like that… and his take on it turned out to be way better. Once the song started to take shape we noticed that it was headed into power ballad territory. We all had a laugh and started calling it The November Rainer. We thought that the idea of a arena rock style metal ballad was kind of cool, so we just went with it. I love how this song turned out – with shades of late 80’s METALLICA and GUNS N’ ROSES riff wise. as well as shades of SOUNDGARDEN when it comes to the vocals. I am glad that we put a song like this on Voice of the Void. It opens the door for us to do other things like this in future (more slow and wide open songs) and it is a very fun song to play. We really hope that everyone enjoys it.”
