Reviews Ceremony Scared People

Ceremony

Scared People

One of the better bands currently existing in hardcore returns with a new EP, their first release since signing to Bridge Nine Records. This time around Ceremony shows they’ve got more in their songwriting arsenal than just lightning fast demonstrations of hate a la Infest. Showing even more variance in writing than their last release, Scared People shows what promise Ceremony has as a still relatively young band, however there’s something lacking in either the production or the performance itself on this seven inch that brings down the intensity of this records compared to others. While it still comes off as aggressive, there isn’t that same feeling of uncontested rage heard on previous recordings. Scared People is still worth checking out nonetheless, if only for the Negative FX cover.
