San Francisco, CA USA
Ceremony are a full scale musical riot spawned from the rotting corpse of Northern California hardcore. Akin to a musical sledgehammer, they are sonically crude, violent, and undeniably destructive in their approach. A throwback to the early days of hardcore, when it was defined by pessimism, misery, and was a true haven for the downtrodden.
In their few years of existence so far, Ceremony have become as popular as they are antisocial. Heralded by many worldwide as one of the best hardcore/punk bands to surface in the last decade.
In early 2007, Ceremony released their classic album "Violence, Violence" on Malfunction Records.
