Bio:

Formed in 2010 by former members of Imagika, Dark Angel and Eldritch, Kill Ritual launched themselves into the metal world with their debut CD “The Serpentine Ritual” in 2012 on Scarlet Records and the band was immediately rewarded with great reviews and positive reaction from fans around the world. The band then completed a 30 date US tour in the fall of 2013 and followed it up with the release of their 2014 CD “The Eyes Of Medusa” on Golden Core/ZYX and again received great press and accolades from fans worldwide.2015 see the band preparing to release their new CD “ Karma Machine” with a new line up after the departure of vocalist Josh Gibson and drummer Gee Anzalone(Dragon Force). Joining Kill Ritual stalwarts’ guitarist Steven D. Rice and bassist Bobby HQ Storm and new vocalist David Reed Watson (Rage Of Angels, Electric Messiah) and drummer Koryun Bobikyan. The new CD will again be produced by guitarist Steve Rice at his Fossil Sound Studios and mixed/mastered by guitar legend, King Diamond member Andy LaRocque at his Sonic Train Studios.

Album:

Hard to breach, but maybe it sounds easier that it sounds like. It is like trying to pick a lock where there is no lock at all, just a door that can be opened by a little shove. I thought about it a lot, and I found it hard to pinpoint my opening for this one, as this is one of the particular cases where it should have been smooth sailing and actually in reality, it is impartially far from what I expected. Just like the short story of the no lock situation, I couldn’t transfigure the American Bay Area Metal band KILL RITUAL, a band that was essentially formulated out of the ashes of a dying band, IMAGIKA for whoever remembers, playing a type of Thrash that isn’t really the Bay Area sprite, at least what their debut album showed, yet something changed within the ranks of the band from San Jose. Second guitarist Roberto "Peck" Proietti and drummer Wayne DeVecchi left the pack. KILL RITUAL didn’t settle for second guitarist and remained a foursome, recruiting the skin basher, Gee Anzalone, which has been around the block. With their signing to GoldenCore Records / ZYX Music, KILL RITUAL issued their sophomore album, “The Eyes Of Medusa”, a Metal screaming dish that I found it rather hard to digest at the first few bites, yet it was made with good intentions.For one thing about KILL RITUAL, though it may seem like it, it is not a revamp kind of band to the bewitching generation of US Power / Thrash Metal, meaning the glory days of VICIOUS RUMORS, METAL CHURCH, AGENT STEEL, MELIAH RAGE, REVEREND and such, particularly after trying upon assimilating “The Eyes Of Medusa” and less in their debut “The Serpentine Ritual”. Following the tracklist of ten songs, KILL RITUAL haven’t really ditched Thrash but rather highlighted the genre’s modernized and groovy version, had me thinking of earlier MACHINE HEAD, reaching a few corners of the early US Power, that has a good impact on the music, while also gut ripping through the shores of Rock N’ Roll right on the outskirts of the Glam nation but with steel, whether musically or with some of their chosen themes. In the beginning some of the songs presented to me a band of veteran that got cocky, looking to experiment on the past and come up with a new mutation. Frankly, it is a sort of experiment still not done and worked on. At times, for example on the epic long length tinker “Writing On The Wall”, the band’s wishes to renew was to a certain degree unbearable, segments felt forced upon, just to make a stand that there is something genuine, however, there is that 50/50 chance for it to crumble.On the other hand, I could feel the leftovers of the past peeping, sometimes beyond chirping like on the album’s great tune, “The Eyes Of Medusa”, a straight blast of devastating first of steel, a conjunction of Speed / Thrash Metal with brutish riffs and explosive vocals, overhauling the old days with grace. However, within the others tracks theses past visions took different forms as they were mixed with other elements. “Ride into the Night”, “Just Another Sin” and “Agenda 21” noted on potential developments, showcasing a kind of songwriting that has a lot of promise, hard hitting riffery, classic lead guitar display by ex-IMAGIKA Steve Rice and a creative rhythm section with Danyael Williams bashing the bass and Gee Anzalone’s skins devouring. In addition, there is that “tough guys” attitude corralled within the songs, chunky low end kickdowns and of course the suitable vocals of Josh "Crimson" Gibson that takes care of that decently with his hood guy narrations, which sounded somewhat cheap and ultimately out of context along with his Phil Anselmo tryouts that were adequate. At least the guy has a thin kind of mid high range that sounds really good, partially of the boyish naturism of the Glam Metal world along with a devilish smile.In overall, though it took me a while, KILL RITUAL’s fusion of genres and outtakes portrayed a path that could be rather interesting if perfected. “The Eyes Of Medusa” blinks nearly everywhere that generates that old patterns of Metal music, possibly something good is on the rise.

Album:

Thrash Metal is deeply entangled in many ways of being done. Some prefer to clone bands as METALLICA, SLAYER and many famous names on their days of glory (specifically, the 80’s), others are trying to breathe some fresh life unto the style. To be creative on Thrash Metal is showing to be a great trial. But some are really taking this duty and trying seriously, as the North American quartet KILL RITUAL, from San Francisco's Bay Area. Yes, they are very creative on their third work, "Karma Machine", the center of this review.The quartet has a deep and strong melodic feeling that appears a lot in all their tracks, giving us the clear sensation of hearing a mix between modern Thrash Metal, traditional Heavy Metal and something from Power Metal and Hard Rock sometimes. And by the way, the technical level is astonishing in some moments, but the weight is always present, without tearing apart the melodic sense of the band.Steve Rice (the band's guitarist) produced the album, but in the mixing and mastering, it's a great surprise to see Andy LaRocque's name. And once more, the result is a sound quality done in an almost perfect weight, being as heavy and aggressive as it is clean, so we can enjoy their music in the best way we can. And the artwork for the cover, done by Jobert Mello (from Sledgehammer Graphix Design) is very good, being a fine incorporation of the album's name.When the album is playing, you can feel how the band is really good, having some great moments, as we can hear on songs like the savage and melodic "Rise" (a song aggressive and melodic, that has a very good technical insight, with excellent guitar riffs and a deep and great work done on vocals, that reminds a bit the same style used by Matthew Barlow), the abrasive "The Enemy Inside" (what wonderful bass guitar and drums work on this great song), the strong and tender "The Key" (in beginning, it seems a ballad, but on a certain part, it gains weight and aggressiveness, with a perfect work on vocals), and the heavy weight song called "The Land of the Dead" (with a Progressive touch due the technical approach, another fine piece of vocals work, and the guitars are exuberant here on great riffs and solos).Buy it at once, and enjoy this very good band!

Album:

Kill Ritual is releasing their new album Kill Star Black Mark Dead Hand Pierced Heart on Massacre Records. This is their sixth album and it will be available in CD, Limited Edition Vinyl, and digital formats on various platforms such as Spotify.Although this album is on the faster and heavier side of the Metal genre, Kill Ritual knocked it out of the park with “I am the Night.” This song is a slow, very theatrical song that sounds like it could have been played during some dark fantasy movie from the ‘80s. In fact, one of the first images that comes to mind was a scene from “The Labyrinth.” This song sounds like something David Bowie would have wrote for that movie in particular. The way the music is much slower and Chalice Blood’s voice mingles with the atmosphere, this song is by far the highlight of the entire record.Aside from “I am the Night” there are some other good aspects of this album. The music is fast on all other songs and will impress any fan of Metal. The sound quality is every bit of what you would expect from many big name bands on a major label.It’s weird to say this, but the vocals on this record were not a good fit for the music. Somewhere between a deeper, almost growl, all the way to high pitched singing. It just doesn’t fit to well with lyrics such as those on “Whore of War.” “Suck her tits and beg for more, who do you think you’re killing for?” don’t really match the voice that is singing them.This album is an okay release overall. Aside from “I am the Night” there a few other songs, such as “7 Knives,” that will get heavy play from metalheads. Not to mention the music is composed very well and sound quality is great, but the vocals throw it off a bit. Understanding that music is subjective, others might disagree, and that’s perfectly fine. Find the new album and tell us what you think.

Line Up:

Chalice Blood - Vocals (2019-present) - See also: Enchanter, October Dawn, ex-Image Beyond, ex-Moltens Lore, Dirt, ex-Enemy Remains, ex-Breed of Kaos
David Alusik - Bass - See also: Urn, ex-Forsaken, ex-Menace
Steve Rice - Guitars (lead) (2010-present) - See also: Imagika, ex-Gotham
Seamus Gleason - Drums (2017-present) - See also: Knight of Tears, Imagika (live)

Tracklist:

01. By the Hand of God 05:36
02. The Whore of War 04:18
03. 7 Knives 05:22
04. I Am the Night 06:17
05. The Smell of Death 04:25
