Seremonia

Much like hard-rock/proto-doom favorites like Witchcraft or Sabbath Assembly, Seremonia practice in a style that reveres and expands on the teachings of the elders, but without aping them. Sure, bands like Blue Cheer, Black Sabbath and others are obvious jumping off points, but so are influences from the acid-drenched fuzz of kraut rock. Psychedelia is a hallmark but not a focus, with the songs spacing out but never drifting into full-on meander.

Seremonia's self-titled debut LP, due via Svart on September 14, is an interesting listen, well worth the more than 30 minutes that span the ten deceptively pop nuggets. Stream one of those, "Lusiferin Käärmeet", for the first time below.

I'm as "hipster" as the next guy but listening to proto-doom in Swedish is even too much for me!
