“The acknowledgement and celebration of the past, with a look to a positive message to moving forwards, is the key to Ancient Power. Beginning with the roots reggae track “Roaring Lions”, we are instantly introduced to Meta’s vision as he sings “Music is the remedy to set us free/we don’t need those barriers/we are the voice of the voiceless/destiny is right here”. On the last of the opening trio of roots reggae “The Price of Everything”, Meta sings that the Babylonians “know the price of everything and the value of nothing”. Material culture for Meta is getting in the way of humanity getting in touch with the ancient power, we are getting further removed from our past, as we involve ourselves with the present, and by not respecting the past we are forfeiting the future as well. This is a constant theme throughout Ancient Power and Meta & the Cornerstones are urging an action to be taken.”
