The 1996 debut album of SCHEITAN from Northern Sweden might until today have remained fairly unnoticed even by long-time scene enthusiasts. Those who unearth it though are confronted with a raging Black Metal gem of piercing screams, freezing guitars battling heavy bass, relentless drums pound on occasional keyboard injections, all flourishing in an energetic soundscape which sets a perfect stage for the skillful songwriting that consciously blends an atmospheric base with unpredictable dynamics. To us, all these credentials alongside its authentic feverish passion of a mid-90’s debut album arguably qualify Travelling in Ancient Times as an obscure Swedish Black Metal classic, somewhere between The Rage of the Northmen, Nord and Enter the Moonlight Gate.
