[OCCULT ROCK] These days, it’s getting hard to cross the moors at midnight without stumbling across the path of a female-fronted, occult-themed metal band. It’s not really a new idea: In the late ’60s, Jinx Dawson led Coven, a pseudo-Satanic group which may have influenced Ozzy and crew to become Black Sabbath. Few modern bands have been more successful at alchemizing that perfect nostalgic vibe than Toronto’s Blood Ceremony, with Alia O’Brien lending her voice, rock organ and Jethro Tull-inspired flute work to the band’s trio of albums. Its 2008 self-titled debut wore its traditions on billowing sleeves, but latest album The Eldritch Dark—which drops later this month—finds the band rapidly maturing away from all metal sensibilities and into a dreamy hard-rock space with few true peers.
