Seremonia premiere the new single and title track of their forthcoming full-length album »Neonlusifer«

Finnish heavy psych rockers Seremonia premiere the new single and title track of their forthcoming full-length album, »Neonlusifer«, set to release on February 4th, 2022 via Svart Records.

»Neonlusifer« is available now on all major streaming platforms.

A fairly straightforward fuzz rock stomper about the evil siren calls of shiny new technology. Of course, fairly straightforward by Seremonia’s weirdo standards means all sorts of experimental cracks and hisses bleeding out the catchy rock songs cracks. Distorted guitar solos and spacy theremins blend together. Like a ghastly soviet Sabbath cover band gone insane and channeling some Finnish apocalyptic religious cult and Thin Lizzy. A definite banger for the death disco dancefloor!

From Svart Records:

»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.

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.
