“…a cosmic sonic ride that I never want to END!” – CVLT Nation
“…an aching, multi-movement prog effort that goes full on emotional…digging deep for a haunting and beautiful melody.” – Revolver
“…all the lush, psychedelic doom you’ve been waiting for and then some…Suspended in Reflections is probably going to be one of the best albums of 2018” – Metal Injection
“…dreamy melancholy and distortion-fueled euphoria…the kind of album that makes me irrationally jealous as a songwriter.” – Invisible Oranges
Southern California’s Ancestors continue to cast an overarching light fog of gloom over the summer in anticipation of their first full-length release in six years – today, the band is debuting “Through a Window” via CVLT Nation. Their third single almost verges into shoegaze territory; displaying a sweeping, all-enveloping sound wave that lives up to MetalSucks’ description of “a melodic type of doom that’s both easy to listen to and absolutely heart wrenching.”
The long-awaited, sonically vast Suspended in Reflections LP will be released August 24th via Pelagic Records.
Hailing from Los Angeles, the now-three-piece Ancestors create mighty, modern soundscapes, taking their time in writing their fifth album, and first with Daniel Pouliot (Horse the Band, Silver Snakes). Explains guitarist and vocalist Justin Maranga, “The most important change was the removal of ego from the writing and recording process. We tried to step out from behind our respective instruments to write the best album we could. We made a beautiful record as a team.”
Indeed, the band steps out from the expected; proggy strings (“Into the Fall”) and jazzy bass lines (“Release”) prove that the three piece is not confirmed to any specific genre of music. The use of an Aeolian-Skinner church organ, however – an instrument with close to 1,941 pipes – woven throughout the album, is proof that these excursions are not blind experiments, but landmarks of a sonic path that this band has carefully chosen.
Suspended in Reflections is currently available for preorder via Berlin’s Pelagic Records and will be released in full August 24. The band will also return to Europe this fall with fellow heavy rock purveyors Elder – stay tuned for more!
