With a furious attack of hardcore, sludge and black metal fueled by antagonist lyrics, ANTI RITUALmakes their debut with a raging EP via Indisciplinarian and Vendetta Records, which is now streaming in its entirety at Cvlt Nation.
ANTI RITUAL is a new band consisting of four experienced musicians with roots in the Copenhagen hardcore and metal scene. The sixteen minutes of music on the band’s eponymous debut EP can be described as a bastard of hardcore, sludge and black metal taking its own form beyond genre descriptions, conveying aggression and negative feelings in musical form.
Anti Ritual is now streaming in full via music and culture site, Cvlt Nation, alongside a detailed interrogation of the band; CLICK THIS.
Recorded and produced by the band, mixed by Jakob Reichert Nielsen (Rising, Lack) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, Sleep, From Ashes Rise), the six tracks on ANTI RITUAL‘s maiden EP are delivered with blistering rage naturally merging hardcore, metal and D-beats into a frontal, cohesive attack, while being accompanied by lyrics and themes that leaves the listener in no doubt of its intentions: a harsh critique of the structures of mainstream society.
ANTI RITUAL‘s debut EP will be released via Indisciplinarian and Vendetta Records four weeks away on April 28th, 2014. The record will be pressed on 12″ black vinyl in a run of 350 copies, and a limited run of 150 copies on white vinyl, as well as in digital format via Bandcamp and all relevant digital outlets.
