Ceremony was founded in the Rotterdam area in 1989 by Peter Verhoef on guitars (ex Phlebotomized) and released 2 demos, one 7‘’ ep and their debut full lenght 'Tyranny From Above' in 1993. The album was released by Dutch underground label Cyber Music and is now finally re-issued by vic records. Bonus to the album comes the 'Inclemeny' e.p. from 1992 and the 3 track promo demo from 1994. Ceremony played typical extreme Ducth death metal from the early 90's just like their friends and fellow-townsman in Sinister for example. (not surprisingly Peter was asked twice to join Sinister in their early days).
All songs are recorded at infames Dutch cult studio Het Pand in Rotterdam with Frits van Mourik (Phlebotomized, Obtruncation, Threnody). Ron van de Pol, founding Sinister member, plays bass on the Ceremony debut album. All tracks are completely remasted by Arco Wolf (IDES). The booklet contains rare pics and extensive liner notes.
