The past five years have seen the gears of the machine behind Blood Ceremony turning with increasing velocity. Born in 2006 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the band released a self-titled record in 2008 that was re-released in a deft move by Metal Blade Records in 2011. Credited as being one of the most original bands in all of Toronto, Blood Ceremony returns this year with their third effort, the excellent and innovative "The Eldritch Dark." Here to explain the album, how it came to be and how the band started is bassist Lucas Gadke. Oh, and he drops some wicked classic horror titles, too.
M. DREW: You have a new album out, “The Eldritch Dark” (which is excellent, by the way.) Tell me a little something about it. How do you feel about it? What was your objective in writing it?
