The masters of ceremonies of the cultivated and epic New Artrock will once again be honoured. On the occasion of their tenth anniversary, the Swedes are happy to release a new album, which makes sense, as it is now three years since "Morning Golden Morning", the last EF longplayer, was released. The EP "Delusion Of Grandeur", released exclusively on vinyl, was just an appetizer for the things that should come with "Ceremonies". There you can also find the eight-minute opulent title track of the 10-inch. But from the beginning. With "Bells, Bleed & Bloom" EF start like a gentle spring rain, which can sometimes send an ice-cold shiver down your spine in Sigur Rós style. Everything here is brushed to euphony, nothing can disturb this once staged idyll. Not even the actually quite harsh noises in the epic "Yield, Heart. Yield! that culminate in a great finale, including trumpets, the ubiquitous glockenspiel and mighty guitar walls. The masters of ceremonies have every reason to celebrate.

Top track: Yield, Heart. Yield!
