Blood Ceremony - Lord Of Misrule (2016)

Now four albums in, Blood Ceremony have crafted their finest release to date in Lord of Misrule. While they’ve admittedly strayed further from their metallic origins, they manage to keep things heavy, though in a different context. From the first notes of album opener “The Devil’s Widow” I was immediately transfixed and sent through a wormhole, coming out somewhere between 1968 and 1973.

“The Rogue’s Lot” is downright haunting. From the deceptively powerful feature riff to the danceable sway of the chorus, the song conjures visions of cloaked (or nude) occultists dancing around a
fire in the woods that can be all but suppressed. The back half of the album features two sinister, acoustic-driven tracks, but see our interview with bassist Lucas Gadke below to hear about those songs straight from the source.
