Seremonia premiere first track off new Svart album

Today, Finnish heavy psych rockers Seremonia premiere the new track "Vapauden polku" at slow 'n' low authority Diving deeper than ever into the dark psychedelic abyss, the track hails from Seremonia's forthcoming third album Kristalliarkki, set for international release on May 8th via Svart Records. With lyrics (still all in their native tongue) revolving around the spiritual cult practices and teachings of a mysterious doomsday cult, Kristalliarkki (English: "The Crystal Ark") also explores the cultist mindset musically. The heavy riffing, the psychedelic solos, the out-of-control drum fills, the blood-chilling vocal delivery, and the collective free rock freak-outs all go way beyond just playing good ol' heavy rock: Seremonia is a band on a sacred mission, possessed by the black flame of rock 'n' roll. Kristalliarkki bears their trademark garage doom sound and catchy riffage, and adds an abundance of acid rock experimentalism, proto-punk anger, sacred music bliss, and even some cosmic jazz flavors in the 15-minute title track of the album. It's a hard-rocking hard rock record, but a wonderfully weird one - even by Seremonia's weirdo standards.

Seremonia is a five-piece band from Finland, playing heavy psychedelic rock and singing in their native language, Finnish. Their eponymous debut album was released by Svart Records in 2012 and received critical acclaim across the world. Since then, the band has played their creepy brand of psych rock in very different venues, be it small punk rock dives or bigger festivals like Finland's Tuska, Denmark's Heavy Days in Doomtown, Sweden's Muskelrock, or Holland's Roadburn. Both on acclaimed albums and ferocious live shows, Seremonia's original take on the genre has earned them a good name amongst the global community of psych rock lovers.
