Blood Ceremony - Detail Upcoming Studio Record

Blood Ceremony, a Canadian-based psychedelic doomers, announce their fifth long player The Old Ways Remain. Seven years after the release of their last album, Lord Of Misrule, the band is now ready for the next chapter in their career. The 10-piece new music effort was engineered by Chris Snow and mixed by Richard Whittaker in London.

"By late 2021, we realized that if we were ever going to finish a new album, we’d just have to record locally and do it ourselves," says guitarist Sean Kennedy. "And that’s what we did. We started rehearsing the material again and were still really excited by it. Once we revisited everything, we had a new burst of energy. We found a local studio that had what we needed and we were off! Recording nearby allowed us to bring in friends like Laura Bates from (fellow folk-doom crew) Völur to play fiddle, Joseph Shabason added saxophone to "Eugenie", and Mike Eckert played pedal steel on "Hecate". We produced ourselves, along with our friend, Paul Keyahas. We worked with an engineer named Chris Snow who immediately got what we were trying to do. Richard Whittaker mixed the tracks at his London, UK, studio, and we think he did a great job."
