Swedish doom and groove merchants Hazemaze share a second track taken from their upcoming album "Blinded By The Wicked", to be released on January 28th on Heavy Psych Sounds. Get ready for another headbang-worthy ritual with "Ceremonial Aspersion"...



As the pandemic progressed and the world got darker, so did Hazemaze's songwriting. Their third album “Blinded by the Wicked” explores cults and their leaders' malevolent intentions that corrupt vulnerable people. The band has taken their dark thematics to the next level, delivering their most multifaceted, pulverizing and groove-infused album to date, describing it as "rock'n'doom". “Blinded by the Wicked” was recorded by Timmy Ternestål at Studio Ingenstans in their hometown of Strängnäs, and mastered at Studio Humbucker by Robert Pehrsson (Death Breath, Dead Lord, Imperial State Electric).

About the song, Stefan Carillo comments: "Ceremonial Aspersion is a straight forward, bone-crushing Goatsnake-inspired doom hymn that opens up the B-side of our new record” Blinded by the Wicked". The theme of song is inspired by the morbid and bizarre ritualistic acts within the infamous Australian cult ”Satan’s children”. This is also the first song to incorporate a Hammond organ to emphasize the gloomy and ritualistic experience. "Ceremonial Aspersion” is a caravan of sabbathian riffs and it’s meant to be played at eleven."


Hazemaze first stroke in 2016 with their 70s hard rock-oriented debut EP “Wicked Ways”. Two years later, the band released their self-titled debut on Kozmik Artifactz, stirring an overwhelmingly positive response from every corner of the stoner/doom scene. The band later signed to Ripple Music and Cursed Tongue Records for the release of their heavier and darker sophomore full-length “Hymns of the Damned” in 2019.  2021 will be the next step in their ascend to the stars, as Hazemaze just signed a worldwide deal to Heavy Psych Sounds for the release of their third studio album "Blinded By The Wicked" in the winter of 2022.
