Void Ritual have a new album, Heretical Wisdom, coming out this summer via Tridroid Records on tape and Throats Productions on CD. The album is a satisfying document of pure black metal. I predict it will end up on more than a few year-end lists. Honestly, it’s a refreshing testament
If you haven’t heard of Void Ritual by now…shit, you’ve lived a mindless existence! Void Ritual hit us with Holodomor in 2014 and released a split with Barshasketh early this year through Broken Limbs Records. If you’re a second wave style fanatic and don’t like Void Ritual, to hell with
No chants, no acoustic guitars, no fuckin’ around brutha, or I might get raggamuffin! Void Ritual brings tingles down my spine here on 2014’s vastly-underrated Holodomor. Don’t get me wrong. Chants are cool. But Void Ritual ain’t about that on Holodomor, friends. This is straight away second wave supersonic Calgary-crushing
