The Wayward Ceremony

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)

Scottish Haar, a Black Metal band from Edinburgh, sounds like a band that wants to explore some untouched territories within the Black Metal genre, trying to reveal and expose as much new ground as possible. The use of dissonant song structures is something that Haar do a lot on The Wayward Ceremony, creating an atmosphere within their unusual sound that will undoubtedly divide the audience's opinions about them. Haar's tricky musical approach may be too much for some to handle, but on the other hand, if you take some time to really delve into the unopened depths of this opus, you'll likely be rewarded by a bunch of genius compositions that scream to be noticed. Haar are really masters at creating discordant riff patterns and unusual passages through their songs that definitely need time before you really get into them and start understanding the band's bigger musical schema of all things artistic, noncommercial and bizarre even.

No doubt, The Wayward Ceremony demands a lot on the part of the listener, but when the gates are fully open, you are entitled to get your rewards from this record. Give it a fair try at least.
