“Ceremorphosis will leave your ears bleeding, while at the same time your brain will cry out for more.”
– Metal Noise
“Ceremorphosis is a rush, a blunt instrument of an album that bludgeons the listener into submission. But somehow makes you want more.”
– Metal Epidemic
“A work that doesn’t give any respite and that drops all its brutality from the first second.”
Featuring current and past members of Through The Eyes Of The Dead, Cognitive, We Are The Romans, and Aronious, the band was formed in 2018 by Michael Ranne Jr and Steve Visone. The band members reside in several locations throughout the U.S. The name of the band was taken from a line by Unicron, a character in the 1986 animated motion picture Transformers the Movie, although quite a bit of the subject matter contained in the lyrics deal in Dungeons and Dragons lore.
FFO: Deeds of Flesh, The Red Chord, Beneath The Massacre, Origin.
