ANCIIENTS are a Canadian heavy metal band from Vancouver, British Columbia. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Kenny Cook, guitarist Chris Dyck, bassist Aaron "Boon" Gustafson and drummer Mike Hannay.
The band was formed in 2011 following the demise of Spread Eagle, a band which included Cook, Gustafson and Dyck.
In spring 2013, the band toured part of the United States as an opening act for Lamb of God. In fall 2013, the band were slated to tour both Canada and the United States as an opening act for selected dates on Sepultura's "Tsunami of Metal" tour, although the tour was cancelled due to Sepultura's difficulties in obtaining travel visas to enter the United States.
