Since their formation in 2011 as a 2 piece studio side project ANCST have been co-spearheading the new wave of hardcore punk-infused black metal in the European extreme metal / DIY underground. While sporting both, hardcore and metal socialization the self-proclaimed collective has perfectly combined fierce melodic black metal and brutal but yet metallic hardcore crust with angry and critical social political lyrics. With 3 albums and a huge amount of highly acclaimed EP’s and splits under their belt on labels such as Lifeforce, Alerta Antifascista, Vendetta Records or Halo Of Flies, ANCST have been praised by both the international music press as well as HC kids and metalheads alike.
After transforming into a full-grown live band in 2014 ANCST has appeared on festivals such as Summer Breeze, Fluff Fest, Bloodshed Fest, New Noise Fest & Outch! Fest and has been touring the European mainland as well as the UK relentlessly.
