Kill Ritual are a band from California that plays a very heavy and aggressive form of power/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Serpentine Ritual" which was released by Scarlet Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with no blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine heavy and aggressive thrash with power metal together to create a sound of t heir own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding power/thrash metal guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add some darkness to the music.
Vocals are mostly clean singing power/thrash metal vocals that utilize some more aggressive and demonic sounding elements at times as well as some spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark, violent and thrash themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Kill Ritual are a very great sounding heavy and aggressive power/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording.
