Blood Ceremony Announces New Album "The Eldritch Dark"

In late 2012/early 2013, the members of Blood Ceremony enclosed themselves within a dank, tomb-like chamber to begin preparations for their third album.

After a mind-numbing spell in the analogue womb of Toronto's ProGold Studios, the band is now ready to unveil a new musical offering: "The Eldritch Dark." The debut single, "Goodbye Gemini," can be heard now through the player below.

Recorded and mixed by producer Ian Blurton (Cauldron, Cursed) and mastered by Nick Blagona (Deep Purple, Rainbow, Crazy World of Arthur Brown), "The Eldritch Dark" is a full-length paean to the darker corners of folklore and legend. Containing eight tracks of black magic rock 'n' roll, the album crackles with the excitement of a nocturnal ritual.

"The Eldritch Dark" will be released via Metal Blade Records/Rise Above Records in North America on May 28th, 2013. Blood Ceremony will be joining Kylesa on tour in North America throughout May and June (dates available below).
