ANCINE Drops ‘Death Hymns’; A Gothic Americana Dirge


March 27, 2024 – These are dark times we’re in, and we need sounds that mirror it. Gothic Americana band, ANCINE answers the call to provide the musical reflection.  They do so with their new release, Death Hymns: Book Of Desolation.

Lyrically, Death Hymns is a collection of murder ballads, often with a supernatural twist. Mike Giallo aimed to mix folk Horror cinema with the seedier side of old time and rural America, with a paradoxical blend of Christian and occult motifs. Though the lyrics are works of fantasy, the themes and emotions that brought them forth are very much real; depression, isolation, alcohol abuse, and misanthropy.

Death Hymns is musically influenced by old delta blues legends Robert Johnson, Son House, and Leadbelly as well as goth/death rock bands such as Christian Death, Samhain, and Fields of the Nephilim.

Death Hymns is available on CD and on all major digital platforms including Spotify & Bandcamp.
