KILL RITUAL
THE SERPENTINE RITUAL
SCARLET

Boasting an impressive pedigree forming from bands such as Imagika, Dark Angel, and Eldritch, Bay Area scene veterans Kill Ritual back up their musical merits with monstrous metal songwriting skills as documented on the unit’s debut THE SERPETINE RITUAL. This seasoned quintet have developed a progressively minded and classically influenced strand of thrash metal (“Time to Kill”) where soaring twin guitars and battering ram rhythms tastefully trade off while a powerful vocal presence commandeering the entire affair. Making music where the riff is just as crucial as the hook isn’t always easy, yet this 11-track affair is bursting at the seams with such moments (“Old School Thrasher”, “Ambush”), making this album a suggested listen for the most discernible of metal fan. -MikeSOS
