On April 8, 2006, it was announced that Ankla signed with Bieler Bros. Records. Their debut album Steep Trails was produced by Bob Marlette, and was released on July 25, 2006. The band receives consistent airplay on Sirius Satellite radio's "Hard Attack" as well as XM radio and east coast radio stations.
In 2007, Ankla played the second stage at Ozzfest and received rave reviews. TheColumbusDispatch.com called Ankla, " a ferocious L.A. band with two speed-merchant drummers."
In 2008, the band's line up changed, replacing former singer Ikaro Stafford with Eddie Macias, who had previously worked with Ramón Ortíz in the early stages of Puya. The band has played with III Niño, Nonpoint, American Head Charge, In This Moment, Bleed The Sky, Brujeria, Body Count, Five Finger Death Punch, Dååth, Six Feet Under, and Hatebreed.
