ALBUM TRIALS OF TORMENT
LABEL PURE STEEL RECORDS
Ritual was originally founded in 1985 as Firedance, later renamed Rotterdam in 1986 and then Torment in 1988.
Under this name the band released three demos, the last one in 1991 with vocalist Juan Ricardo. In 1993 the band from Cleveland, Ohio had great underground success and, renamed Ritual, they released their legendary debut 'Trials of Torment'.
A ten song masterpiece combining speed and thrash with great job vocals. This year, Ritual will not only perform for the first time on European soil at the "Full Metal Osthessen festival" but will possibly do a European tour to celebrate the re-release of their classic from 1993. Remastered by Robert Romagna 'Trials of Torment' is shining again in 2019.
As abovementioned, the style is complex and various, able to mix in the right way more classic parts with heavier moments, prog attitude with sharp riffs.
