Ancient is a Norwegian band that, while not really troll metal, had troll metal themes on their 1994 EP 'Trolltaar'. The band started as a solo project of guitarist Aphazel in 1992, subsequently adding drummer Grimm. Time went; they released their debut album, shortly after which Grimm left the band. Aphazel then moved to the United States, formed a new line-up and became obsessed with vampirism. Ancient used to have a raw black metal sound, similar to Darkthrone's blacker works. Beginning with The Canaan Chronicle, they moved towards a more Nordic/atmospheric blackmetal sound, like Emperor. After a period of turmoil concerning their line-up, including the exit of founder Aphazel, they went on to add Gothic-style instruments like violins, female vocals and synthesizers to their music. Most of their records, with the exception of Det Glemte Riket, have been issued on Metal Blade Records.
