ANCESTORS 'In Dreams And Time'
Los Angeles psychedelic prog-rock band ANCESTORS' new album In Dreams and Time showcases the band's most accomplished music to date and a creative sound that morphs from thunderous cacophony to soul-searching peaks and valleys as towering riffs collide with bleak beauty and deep wells of light and dark. ANCESTORS formed in 2006 and instead of "choosing between prog rock or heavy rock," merged the styles to create music rife with atmosphere, tension and raw human emotion. On In Dreams and Time, the band fuses the primal aggression of their earlier work with the advanced dynamic sensibilities of the new, gazing into the infinite horizon to provide innovative, atmospheric thinking-man's music. From the moment the album's lead track "Whispers" comes on like a collapsing star, SoCal's reigning kings of heavy psych unleash spacious, bombastic sound that unveils layer upon layer of vintage tones, spectral atmospheres, skin-crawling ambience and swirling keyboard swell over a body of crushing, full-contact rock. A record of limitless depth, In Dreams and Time swings from the exceedingly beautiful to the punishingly physical in seconds flat.
