»Neonlusifer« is the fifth album by Finland’s greatest and eeriest heavy psych outfit Seremonia. The band’s latest wonderfully weird outing of dark psychedelia, Pahuuden äänet, came out in 2016. After a lengthy recording hiatus, »Neonlusifer« offers a highly addictive version of Seremonia’s trademark freak rock, opening a number of new doors of perception.

»Väärä valinta« kickstarts Seremonia’s new album, »Neonlusifer«. A hard-rolling heavy rocker with cranky fuzz riffing, wailing garage organ and a cautionary tale about choosing death. Inspired by »Deluxe«-era Xysma, the first Dead End 5 album and the endless horror vacuum of modern everyday life, »Väärä valinta« is a prime example of Seremonia’s core duality. No-holds-barred heavy rock pounding and melancholy atmosphere in perfectly off-kilter harmony. Check out brand new »Väärä valinta« -video by Ville Pirinen and Sami Sänpäkkilä!

Fading and spacing out shortly after the 35 minute mark, Seremonia’s new album is an exceptionally tight package of heavy psych. While it certainly means a lot of hot fuzz riffs and catchy choruses, Seremonia would not be Seremonia without their fearless free form psychedelic experiments. So, somewhere between »Neonlusifer«’s uptempo earworm rock tracks you’ll find a slow burning free improv song about deep cosmic depression, drenched in haunted mellotron strings and beautifully melancholic flutes. You’ll find a folksy garage psych song that would be the perfect piece of music for your funeral. The experimental production spirit runs free throughout the entire album.

»Neonlusifer«’s strange tales of death, love, destruction, oblivion and hope are all delivered in Seremonia’s signature out-of-control, out-of-this-world psych punk groove. Angry fuzz guitars, unhinged drum thunder, all-around demented hippie psychedelia and the chilling vocals of Noora Federley. Iron fist in a velvet glove.
