Ancient was initially started as a solo project by Aphazel (now known as Zel) in 1992, but later turned into a duo consisting of Aphazel and Grimm. The lineup and location of the band has since then changed quite a bit, with Zel moving to the US in 1995, Italy three years after and eventually Greece, the band's current location since 2011.
The lineup today is:
Zel, the founder, from Norway: vocals, guitars, keyboards
Dhilorz, from Italy, joined in 2000: guitars, bass
Nicholas Barker, from the UK, joined in 2009: drums
