Speaking about the record, Sumerian's co-founder Ash Avildsen commented: "To me, 'Ceremonials' by Florence + the Machine is one of the most timeless records to come out in years. The distinctive vocals and melodies, the orchestration and instrumentation, the production, the mood and the lyrics have made me enamored with the album. It is also one of the heaviest records in years to me ... not in the sense of metal and aggressive vocals/guitars/drums, but in how the songs make you feel."
