3 stars I have fairly recently discovered this band and happy to have found them. This is a 7" vinly single release, of which I only have the digital promo. "Let it Come Down" is the one original composition and "Loving You" is the cover with which they decided to accompany this single, originally recorded by Iron Claw.

Both songs are fairly straightforward, short, heavy rock, compositions, with the original recording showing late 60's psychedelia influences at a mid-tempo with Alia's vocals and flute work dominating the rich and retro sound. The bluesy guitar solo does little to hide the Cream-era inspiration and the whole tune flows brilliantly, resembling the beginnings of heavy rock with a fairly "typical", yet memorable melody. The cover song is fairly close to the original, albeit extended by a minute or so, with more raw power and a hard-rockin' street feeling. The heavy rock/proto-metal riff signatures are showing up and Blood Ceremony don't attempt to alter its character, and throw in a couple more riff and refrain passages as finishing touches.

A nice single release (albeit less proggy) which confirms the relationship of the band with the late 60's/early 70's - "Let it Come Down" is the more interesting of which heavy and retro proggers will enjoy the remarkable flute sections. 3.5 stars.
