BLOOD RITUAL (USA/WA)


Hailing from the festering, once-grunge-filled bowels of Seattle, BLOOD RITUAL was originally formed in 1991 by Bishop, a member of the Church of Satan, as a band monikered Impiety and dedicated to authentic Satanism. After several line-ups, four devastating songs, and a name change, in 1992 BLOOD RITUAL was officially born. The band soon played several local shows, where they overwhelmed the fans and out-performed their headliners. Strange occurrences took place at these shows: Cars mysteriously caught fire, peoples crucifixes broke and fell, and some listeners went mad and began hearing voices. In 1993, BLOOD RITUAL released their first demo, entitled Cruciform Antithesis. Distributed internationally by the MORIBUND CULT, Cruciform received numerous praises and became a legendary demo. One report stated that a group of occultists tried to listen to it, and it melted their tape machine. Over time, some BLOOD RITUAL members began experiencing strange things, such as visions. The lead guitarist took ill and had a nervous breakdown, quitting the band. Mr. Gallows, whose creepy solos made him the perfect addition to BLOOD RITUAL, replaced him. In 1995, BLOOD RITUAL returned to the studio to record their debut album for the CULT, At the Mountains of Madness. Pressing plants refusing to make the release and print shops purposely misprinting the booklet and conveniently losing the films plagued the release, delaying it until 1998.
