Ritual (us) - Advance Tracks 1995

Ritual (us) - Rough Mix Advance Tracks 1995
Visions of Souls Once Lost
2) Pagan Warfare (No vocals)


Here's another band with a name used by bazillion others, Ritual from California USA play black metal influenced by the Scandinavian style on these two rough mix advance tracks for their debut album. Old Black Funeral comes to my mind as well, probably due the US-origin and the Scandinavian influence. I've received these from a tape trader friend so I don't have that much info as to how much the tracks were spread or so on. I don't think they would've made any sort of cover for this.

The sound is decent, considering it is a rough mix, it's a little bit... rough. Very well audible however and sounds different enough from the album versions to merit a listen. Not the most original of usbm around, not even back then, but I still have kind of a soft spot for this little tape.

You're welcome guys! Yeah rough mixes are cool and sometimes I prefer them over the final version.
