Never heard of them myself, but they sound interesting. Will definitely have to check them out before next month and see what they will bring to the table.  \m/

EDIT: Actually I have heard of them after checking out this song on youtube right now.

I was thinking about picking some of their stuff up then spaced it. I like them, so guess it's time to buy some more music lol

Interesting sound they have. Reminds me of 60s and 70s rock and punk, and a bit of progressive/psychedelic type stuff.

Remind me a lot of Blood Ceremony, which I love, so good choice far as I'm concerned. Not that it matters once King comes out, I'll have forgotten all about the opening band lol

Wow, an excellent choice from King!!! As a Finn I'm very happy for my fellow-countrymen. They do deserve this great opportunity.

Jess and the Ancient Ones is truly amazing live band. Their live sound is always very dynamic and heavy, and the vocalist lady is a great performer. I love their debut album. Sulfur Giants is by far my favorite song from that awesome album. It's a long epic song. It starts very slowly but turns out to be a one heavy melodic masterpiece.

Check this out, my American friends: Sulfur Giants.

I plan on ordering their debut album next week wen I have more in the bank, and probably that 3 song ep. They sound pretty damn good, looking forward to seeing them live.

This is great news. Jess and The Ancient Ones are a very cool and very good  band, I didn't see this coming, but, I am pretty stoked, this was thinking outside the box, and the King Diamond camp hit a homerun with this pick. Now, can I see alot of meathead(sorry if your a meathead) fans booing them off the stage? Sadly, I can see that happening also. I hope I'm wrong as I think most King Diamond fans are free thinking, open minded., but we all know there are those few. I'm a big fan of Midday Veil, Jess and the Ancient Ones kind of have that same vibe, should be a great evening of music. Really cool choice for an opening band.

Great! You won't be disappointed. The 3 song EP is also very good, almost 15 minutes long More than Living is phenomenal. :)

I doubt they will get booed off stage. The one and only time I saw King Diamond he had a band called pit-bull daycare, which is not even really a metal band, and everyone seemed okay with it. They were some industrial metal type music, didn't even have a drummer, just electronic effects, and they lasted the whole show. I am sure this band will be just fine opening for the KD band.
