Ritual Productions

Ritual Productions is an independent record label and publisher, committed to providing uneasy listening for the masses, since Winter 2010. Ritual Productions exists to support and unleash daring, transcendental and original music with arcane artists of the same persuasion. By permitting artists the freedom and independence to work instinctively and enabling them to conjure sonic potions that resonate deeply with their own, and the label’s, ethos and psyche, we believe this allows the unhinged and otherworldly magik to thrive! The result has been releases – what we deem RITES – that are intoxicatingly hypnotic and deeply infectious in their power to melt minds, awaken the dormant third eye and entrance the listener into our disorientating riff realm of chaos. Ritual Productions sees all of its rites as serious artistic processes which deserve and receive the utmost care and attention to detail, releasing only the best quality products, crafted to inspire you. Our roster consists of artists whom all delve deep in the creation of subversive, contemporary and nuanced music: 11PARANOIAS: 11PARANOIAS hypnotise listeners into their hullabaloo of highs. Intense mind whirls, blistering euphoria and spectral mirages are induced by their darkened psychedelia, opening realms of aural, visual and further sensory paranoia. Their rites are aural and spectral feasts that are not for the faint of mind! ANCIENT LIGHTS: The origins of Ancient Lights comes after 13 unholy years of jammed discourse and psychic plotting. 2017 sees the manifestation of such surreptitious sonic scheming and the subsequent integration of the members within a united space – considering the trio all live in different countries. BONG: BONG invite listeners known and new to permit themselves to their unfurling, mesmeric drone. The band’s transformative, otherworldly and majestic hues captivate all who witness, rendering the trio quite a following. Transform and transcend with BONG’s glistening darkness. DRUG CULT: A vortex of majestic heaviness laced with an evocative psychedelic haze, whereby classic melodies meld with fuzz-drenched riffs cultivating an enticing potion of technicolour wickedness. Although a grooving heavyweight tone drives throughout Drug Cult’s sonic, a darkened presence is forever evident. HORSE LATITUDES: Finnish alchemists of the heavy arts – Horse Latitudes – offer a bespoke magik that burns and melds into a slow, primordial incarnation of hypnotic doom, black metal and psychedelia. Their vision allows only for surrender to their dark yet immensely illuminating and absorbing art. RAMESSES: Ramesses are uncontested throne holders in the constellation of all things grim and doom. A blistering supercharged malevolent miasma packing a feverish ferocity, Ramesses harken to looming darkness, zero remorse and the outstandingly heavy swell of savage commanding power. THE POISONED GLASS: The Poisoned Glass released their debut and eagerly awaited stark, sinister and suggestive rite, 10 SWORDS, during 2016. It’s exceptional a duo can be masters of such disorientating quietude that is too hugely affecting. Anticipate an unnervingly pleasurable aural poison… THRALLDOM: The underground enigma Thralldom stirred, and subsequently arose, from a decade-long dormancy during 2016. Their latest offering sees a wicked hybrid of various metal genres; intimidating in its sublime coldness, creeping uneasiness and dark sonic decay. The live incarnation of our rites are offered as RITUALS for the masses. This shared absorption leaves no listener safe from the elemental spells and sonic séances of our artists. As loyal and unknowing spectators will both testify, once you initiate yourself into the Ritual way you will find it hard to keep away…and you will never be the same. RITUAL PRODUCTIONS ALUMNI: GHOLD: GHOLD are exceedingly relentless in their mission to shake skulls and intoxicate brains with their prolific weight and gruff infused melodies. Their craft of working with creeping volume, dizzying abrupt spells of frantic speed and foreboding multi-textured noise always leaves listeners captivated.

11PARANOIAS REVEAL ALBUM TRAILER, STUNNING ARTWORK COURTESY OF TOBY ZIEGLER & TRACK-LISTING FOR ASTERISMAL, INCOMING MARCH 2019

With high anticipation building for the upcoming 11PARANOIAS rite Asterismal, due for release this March 15th, Ritual Productions are excited to unveil new aural and visual offerings from the psych-doom-noise experimentalists!

The trailer, by Joe Shearsby, entrances you into 11PARANOIAS’ distorted depths of darkened psychedelic phantasmagoria. New music featured from the rite includes the ominously thunderous ‘Vitrified Galaxy’, melancholic mirage ‘Slow Moon’ and the paralytic lullaby ‘Chamber of Stars’. The full LP track-listing and exclusive extras for CD and digital download can be found further below.

We are also extremely delighted to reveal the stunning artwork for Asterismal, which comes courtesy of contemporary British artist Toby Ziegler (https://www.simonleegallery.com/artists/toby-ziegler). Read on for Toby’s inspiration behind this visual enchantment…

“The cover makes reference to a pair of vanitas paintings by Georges de La Tour - ‘The Magdalen with the Smoking Flame’ and 'The Flea Catcher’ - where the skulls and flames consider the transience of life and the certainty of death. They were painted at different times but I’ve juxtaposed them. My work is always figurative and abstract simultaneously; here, the flowering pentagram pattern weaves and flickers in and out of the representational images in a tug of war between the layers.”

As such, those who have held onto their Multi-Dimensional Paranoid Vision (MPV) keys - which come with the band’s 2016 rite, Reliquary For A Dreamed Of World - shall be rewarded in the visual realm: “The MPV keys function with Asterismal to obfuscate or intensify the layers. My work has always been informed by music and in the last few years that relationship has become more explicit. It makes a lot of sense to try to find images that are somehow analogous for sound.”

The 11PARANOIAS X Toby Ziegler collaboration has been a long time coming, with Toby mentioning: “I have known 11PARANOIAS bassist/vocalist Adam Richardson for years and we share a lot of similar cultural reference points. It seemed a great time for us to work together at long last… so when we did the artwork it happened really quickly and fluidly, and we are all very happy with the results."

Asterismal is undoubtedly 11PARANOIAS’ most exciting yet challenging release to date, coalescing experimental noise elements with pure psychedelia and a devastating deluge of doom and drone. The rite channels unprecedented extra-terrestrial terrain for the band, opening thresholds of esoteric mysticism, immersive euphoria and alluring darkness, subsequently conjuring an overwhelmingly intense rapture for the subconscious and its dormant senses. In turn, Asterismal sees 11PARANOIAS at their most propulsive, potent and powerful!

Have you checked out Ancient Lights yet?

Formed on the instinctual and perceptive jamming between the three pillars of the band, foundations build and soar into an otherworldly plane – resulting in a rite that is solemnly foreboding yet gorgeously ethereal. Melodic quietude meets searing guitars and tempos flicker and manifest though careful increments and unseen bursts of velocity. One marker of Ancient Lights is the monastic-like vocals buried within the mix that resound deep within your brain, amplifying the ritualistic and lulling hues that enable imaginative escape.

Ancient Lights debut rite saw release last year on Ritual Productions. You can pick up the LP, CD and digital download over at our webstore: https://www.ritualproductions.net/product-tag/ancient-lights/
