Gig Of The Week: Blood Ceremony
WHO: Blood Ceremony
WHERE: London Borderline
WHEN: Thursday, April 21
Following the release of new album Living With The Ancients on Rise Above, the Toronto band are playing a special show sponsored by Classic Rock Presents Prog. The band’s combination of flute-inspired 70s prog, folk and classic occult rock has already made them firm favourites over here, and they’re promising to make this something special.
“Our new set list will showcase a number of songs from our upcoming release that we’ve never performed live, alongside selections from our Rise Above debut,” says guitarist Sean Kennedy. “As this will be our only UK date on this run, we welcome you all to come to the sabbat.”
The first time the band – also featuring vocalist/flautist Alia O’Brien, bassist Chris Landon and drummer Andrew Haust – played here was over a year ago, and Kennedy says they’re ready for this headlining return.
“It amazes me that it’s already been a year-and-a-half since our first London appearance supporting doom legends Electric Wizard. That was a very memorable show for us so we’re thrilled to announce our return to the UK. In the meantime, we’ve been honing our live ritual.”
Also on the bill are highly rated young Brits Wolf People.
