Ancient Head - Discography
Ancient Head briefly existed in Olympia, WA. During their short run they played a shitload of shows and unfortunately, only released a demo, which, in my opinion, are their worst songs. Because of my opinion I have included some unreleased tracks in the download, "Selective Liberation", "Open Up Step Back", "Fight Your Own War", "Everyday", and "Barricadas". This is not a complete discography in that their first song "No Restraint" isn't included because Josh doesn't like it. Anyhow, Trainyard and Ancient Head used to have an alliance until Tanar started beef. "Open Up Step Back" was originally a Trainyard song that was given to them. On the recording Ian does guest vocals. Trainyard later covered the song and Josh sang his parts, haha. "Everyday" and "Barricadas" are my personal favorites. Josh, the vocalist, is an Iraq War Veteran who now runs Coffee Strong in Tacoma, a venue/anti-war coffee shop that provides information for soldiers of their rights, just down the block from Fort Lewis. Pretty ballsy and just awesome in general. Ancient Head is named after the Beyond song but they never covered it. Amongst the covers under their belt were Cro-Mags "World Peace", Negative Approach "Pressure" and Undertow "Kill".
