Album Notes
A sorrowful tale of a burdened life expressed through dark ambiences perturbed with unforgiving aggressions of death.

"Antique produced something unlike anything I have heard before. 'Book One' will be appreciated by dark and dramatic people the world over." -- Into Obscurity

"Fans of atmospheric music will be amazed. ...A journey into the unknown, into the darkness." -- Patrick, The Darkest Hours

"'Book One' really is the first chapter to another world's story [...] the listener feels transported to another universe." -- L'Édition Métallique

"I get the strong impression they have hired the actor who did the voice of the character Gollum on the last Lord of the Rings episode to do half of the vocal parts." -- Judge M., Lords Of Metal

"The compositions are quite varied and elaborate [...] With apparent ease the band manages to change from subtle orchestral parts to heavy metallish pieces." -- HD,

"With 'Book One' Antique shows it has already created a quite unique sound of it's own : an interesting mix between death-metal and dark wave with a touch of doom and ambient that might appeal to fans of Mortiis, Saturnus, Evereve and Dark Tranquility." -- EverDarkGreen

" an opera telling a story to classical music..."
-- The_Rev, Alarming Echo Beats

"Hauntingly symphonic, classical, atmospheric, ambient, disturbing, and dismal fit the description of the music put forth on this release." -- Metal Mike

The soundscapes of Book One are an emotional blend of classical subtlety and metallic force engendered by haunting strings, aroused by churning guitars, and awoken by chaotic vocals.

Utter Amazement
This album blew my mind. First time hearing anything along these lines and I'm a Nails fan. Worth a listen, even a buy. Zelda anyone?


Just Amazing, astonishg that someone can be this talented.
Truely great concept album, telling a dark, interesting, and depressing story. Very atmospheric genius thats been clearly carefully thought out.
