Blood Ceremony

Let It Come Down / Loving You Single

Rise Above Records

Street: 06.23

Blood Ceremony = Jex Thoth + Mount Salem

This single gestures towards the more psychedelic proto-metal direction they’ve been taking since Living With The Ancients. With Michael Carrillo’s snappy rock beats and Lucas Gadke’s massive bass grooves, Blood Ceremony manage to confidently break away from the dullness of The Eldritch Dark. Their cover of Iron Claw’s “Loving You” shows that this band is able to play with some serious panache, but their other track feels a little dull by comparison. “Let It Come Down” gets a little caught up in its own jaunty swing and loses the energetic rock riffing of their proto-metal roots. –Henry Glasheen
