Blood Ceremony’s fourth album Lord of Misrule is so indisputably a classic-style British rock album that it delves into themes of paganism and mystik mythic old Britain. Plus lots of big riffs. The album is available on CD or 180g vinyl: take your pick from black, white and red vinyl versions. On Rise Above.

This whole retro occult rock/metal movement fronted by serpentine women is honestly pretty neat when I think about it, as it's a full-blown revival of a scene that never actually existed in the first place. In Blood Ceremony's case, their format can be defined as being built around early Black Sabbath but with strong prog and folk influences from Jethro Tull. Lyrical inspirations linger in the vein of Black Widow and Coven's creepy narratives delivered by a sorceress. Concerning 'Lord of Misrule', Jefferson Airplane also comes to mind with the fuzzbox solos and mellower moments of psychedelia, yet, and here's where things get interesting, I also find myself comparing some of the riffs and beefy attitude to the kind of earthy heavy rock that bands like Bloodrock were pumping out in 1970.
