CEREMONIAL CASTINGS BIOGRAPHY
Ceremonial Castings hails from a church in the Battle Grounds of Washington State. Playing a unique breed of Black Metal combining a mix of Symphonic, Death, & Thrash, CC describes their sound as American Deathphonic Black Metal. Ceremonial Castings one day plans to dominate the northwest with their high intensity & cold apocalypse driven modulations. "All Hail The Bringer Of Death."CEREMONIAL CASTINGS GENRES
Summer 1996, Jake (Lord Serpent) and (Old)Nick started practicing and writing songs on a daily basis. At the time Jake was in a band called Crimson Death, which quickly diminished and left all focus upon this new project. The band wanted to take up a name that in a way symbolized the music and lyrical content. Within a few days the band came to terms with the title "Ceremonial Castings". Ceremonial Castings released their first demo tape back in 1996. The tape consisted of four songs: Eternal Dying Dawn, Unholy Communion, Witchcraft, In velvet darkness.
In the early months of 2004 Ceremonial Castings finally found a live drummer (Bloodhammer), now the band consists of three.
Here and now in 2005 Ceremonial Castings will be releasing their first professional pressed release "Immortal Black Art".
2006 will bring our next full length "Barbaric is the beast" featuring the first album with our drummer Bloodhammer.
