Bloody Ceremony: Lord Of Misrule

Album Review

Pagan revelries and vintage magick from Canadian occultists

This Canadian coven’s fourth album sees the band invoking a more pastoral British sound to accompany their brand of prog-infused proto-metal stomp.

Taking its name from a Saturnian Bacchanalia of drunken revelry, rural rites and ritual sacrifice, Lord Of Misrule is steeped in eccentric tales of folklore, mystical encounters and haunting psychedelia. The step away from the Sabbath-driven style of former albums has enabled the band to encompass a wider variety of influences from the glory days of dark 60s folk, prog and freakbeat scenes whilst establishing a more mature lyrical direction.
