Ancient VVisdom LP

Anyone who reads this blog regularly will know that I am not too up on new bands these days. It's hard trying to sift through all the rubbish or average bands to find the good ones. Fortunately I can always rely on fellow bloggers to inform me about what's going on out there that I should give some of my precious time to.

I was reading Daniel's blog Memories Lie Frozen recently and he featured the Ancient VVisdom 'A Godlike Inferno' LP. He wrote about it with such passion that I figured it well worth a listen. Well, within about two days I had developed a mild obsession for the band, and had listened to the album about 5 times a day. I simply could not stop listening to it. And then I found out that they were touring the UK in a month's time. It's been a long time since I got really excited about a live show, but damn, I was excited about this one.

Sometimes when you are excited about seeing a live band they le you down, but I really enjoyed Ancient VVisdom live. Even the crowd of metalheads waving beers about in the air didn't put a dampener on it. And at the end of the night I couldn't help but buy a record, even though I had already ordered one direct from the label. At least the band were selling a different colour though. This one is referred to as 'Toxic Wasteland', which pretty much means 'dirty green with lots of other colours mixed in'. Looks good.

My friend Bez came along and took some photos. Dude is good with a camera... although not so with a tomtom. I thought I would put a couple of his photos up here (you should click on them to view full size, they look better that way):

And finally, here's a link to a video I shot of the song 'Lost Civilisation'. The lighting was weird (i.e. red) but it's still a good watch if you like the band. Nathan Opposition was not playing drums as he usually does live, which I think made it visually more interesting. Enjoy...

Thanks for adding the video, looks like it would have been a great show. What's the other colour you got?

My other copy hasn't shown up yet, but I asked for the orangey looking one. I thought that went best with the artwork.

Probably one of the ugliest album covers I've seen in a while.
