Savage Republic - Ceremonial

Independent Project Records
(IP018: 801673010224)




Originally released in 1986.

Savage Republic’s second album, originally released in 1986 with four vocal songs and four instrumentals is currently available digitally in all-instrumental mixes, as band leader Bruce Licher originally envisioned the album.

The group who recorded Ceremonial is a much different band than the four members who recorded Savage Republic’s debut LP in 1982, with a greater focus on layered guitars and sublime melodies.

As Richie Unterberger writes about the album in AllMusic: “Their most accomplished and accessible work, largely jettisoning the harsher scrapings of the early records for expansive instrumentals featuring chiming guitars and occasional touches of ethereal trombone. Aiming for (and sometimes achieving) a hypnotic drone, at their best these have a melancholy beauty, bringing raga-rock into the post-punk age.”
