ANCIENT SETTLERS have signed a multi-album deal with Scarlet Records.
Founded in 2020 in Donostia/San Sebastián (Basque Country/Spain), ANCIENT SETTLERS are a divergent modern melodic death metal band composed of five musicians all sharing Venezuelan heritage.
ANCIENT SETTLERS aim to explore the boundaries of melodic death metal, incorporating catchy guitar riffs, melodies, synths, keyboards and various sounds and rhythms to develop their own musical identity.
The band draws inspiration from the recent tragedies that have affected the human race and delves into the impact of these events on the Earth, spreading a message of rebellion, resilience and hope to those who are willing to listen.
Throughout their relatively short career, ANCIENT SETTLERS have collaborated with renowned music producers such as Fredrik Nordstrom (In Flames, Opeth), Daniel Cardoso (Noctem, Anneke Van Giersbergen) and Pedro J. Monge (Vhaldemar, Rise To Fall).
ANCIENT SETTLERS have already embarked on three European tours: the ‘Autumnus Europe Tour’, ‘Our Last Eclipse Europe Tour’ and the ‘Transition Europe Tour’. They shared the stage with bands such as Infected Rain, Amberian Dawn, Sirenia and Lutharo at various venues and festivals across Europe.
The new ANCIENT SETTLERS studio album is expected to be released in May.
