Blood Ceremony - Blood Ceremony

Taking its name from an Italian horror film, BLOOD CEREMONY is a Toronto-based band that was formed in 2006 by Sean KENNEDY (guitar), Chris LANDON (bass), Andrew HAUST (drums) and Alia O'BRIEN (vocals, flute, occasional organ). In 2008, they released their eponymous debut. While the band never indulged in epic songwriting, cuts like 'Master of Confusion' and 'Hymn to Pan' comfortably pass the five minute mark.

Musically, BLOOD CEREMONY does sound like a mix between Paranoid-era SABBATH's sluggy riffage, with a touch of Stand Up period JETHRO TULL mostly due to O'BRIEN's flute. The result is something that borders on doom metal, but has enough backwards cast psychedelic atmosphere - not to mention O'BRIEN's quasi-operatic vocals - to make it stand out from the rest of the pack. Highly recommended to anyone who likes that late 60s/early seventies gloom metal sound.
