BLOOD CEREMONY, an infernal marriage of SABBATH riffing and the manic piping of JETHRO TULL, play a distinctive style of flute-tinged witch rock. After a mind-numbing study of hundreds of trashy witchcraft films, the group began to pour their energies into crafting songs, transforming their fascination for horror into a profane musical vision.
Their sound bears witness to the heavy bands of yesteryear, fusing progressive rock elements with folk and an early '70s downer vibe. Invoking the mischievous Pipes of Pan, Blood Ceremony songs are distinguished by singer Alia O'Brien's energetic flute solos - accenting an instrument long-associated with a list of devilish figures.
BLOOD CEREMONY will take to the road for a Europe wide tour with label mates GHOST in April 2011 - including an appearance at the prestigious ROADBURN FESTIVAL in Holland
