Album Notes
The music of Ancient, Inc., is an ethno-(industrial, electronic and experimental) music that combines our love of middle-eastern music and Moroccan culture with experimental recording methods and deep sound manipulation.

Ancient, Inc, exposes a region that is far more vibrant, magical, and complex than we are led to believe. This music is real - moving and emotional. The songs are created with real ethnic instruments including gumbri, violin, djembe and other stringed Arabic instruments. Found objects add special sounds, and samples are manipulated and mangled. Finally, electronic synths, beats and studio tricks warp the sounds for your contented ears.

Real location recordings made by the band uncover the actual life, grit and sand. This texture echoes how we tweaked the knobs on the music to produce our own fractured take on Arabic music.

Ancient, Inc., is Inspired by the music of Coil, Zoviet France, Muslimgauze, and others in the electronic and industrial vein. Additionally, location recordings of the people of the desert, along with Amr Diab and other North African performers classic and new give insight into the magic of Arabic music.

Ancient, Inc., has members from the band Khamsa Khala which attained notoriety worldwide with the release "All Rites Reversed."
