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.

2019 RITE RETROSPECTIVE:

Viviankrist | 'Cross Modulation' (in collaboration with Diagonal Records)

Ritual Productions have secretly been developing Diagonal Records' latest signing Viviankrist. Eri Isaka Fuzz-Kristiansen is no stranger to Ritual Productions, having shared stages with Ramesses in her previous incarnation as Gallhammer’s Vivian Slaughter.

As Viviankrist, Eri has delved deep into her love for analog synths and improvised music, switching effortlessly between cinematic, hypnotic and affecting grooves.

Ritual Productions reveals: “We have witnessed Viviankrist’s birth, growth and progress; it has been a magickal journey where many wishes have become reality. We are collaborating with Diagonal Records for the release of Viviankrist’s 'Cross Modulation’ - a first for both labels. Ritual Productions and Diagonal may operate in wildly different sonic realms but both praise artistic freedom, strive to provide artists with all necessary support, and fans with beautifully designed and packaged releases.”

Eri states: “Delivering my music to different audiences is exciting. I am really happy that 'Cross Modulation' is coming out via a collaboration between Ritual Productions and Diagonal Records. Both labels are extreme and are always pushing boundaries. They have a very strong character and powerful identity which I feel suits my distinctive sound."

2019 RITE RETROSPECTIVE:

Nibiru | 'Salbrox'

Titled Salbrox, meaning 'Sulfur' in the Enochian language of which the band profess, the rite is a cataclysmic psychic journey of visionary magick, elemental prophecies and esoteric supernormality. Tribal percussion, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones imbued with the band's amalgamation of black metal, doom metal and psychedelic textures formulates a fascinating, idiosyncratic art. Vocals harbour a possessed and rasping quality that surely summon spectres far beyond our comprehensible realm, bringing forth a divination of the self.

Conceptually and spiritually, Salbrox is inspired by the continuous re-adjustment between disharmony and balance. Salbrox aims, via mysterious and enigmatic practices that reflect an ouroboros quality of death and rebirth, to explore the transmutation and regeneration of the human being that occurs at every level - spirit, soul and corporeality.

In turn, the alchemical practice of 'Solve et Coagula' - meaning to dissolve and coagulate - is the foundation of Salbrox. This ethos points towards the liberation of the self from impurities and the destruction of the Ego, bringing forth an alternative awareness and synthesis of the self. The rite is thus a magick process that follows the key principles of alchemy, merging deep, ancestral knowledge into sound voyages that awaken the darkest and most hidden chords of consciousness.

Salbrox was recorded live and mixed at Music Lab Studio, Italy by Emiliano Pilloni and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright. Produced by Nibiru.

2019 RITE RETROSPECTIVE:

11PARANOIAS | 'Asterismal'

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!

Asterismal further marks the final instalment in a trilogy of 11PARANOIAS albums: 'Stealing Fire From Heaven' had lead drums, 'Reliquary For A Dreamed Of World' had lead bass and 'Asterismal' now hones in on the lead guitar.

Asterismal was recorded and mixed by Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse Studio, London in September 2017 and May 2018, respectively. Additional recording and mastering undertaken by Dan Miller and Adam Richardson at XL Recordings Studio, London during July 2018.

2019 RITE RETROSPECTIVE

Basalt | 'O Coração Negro da Terra' (Digital Re-Release)

Comprised of seven tracks spanning just over thirty minutes, conceptually 'O Coração Negro da Terra' harkens to the chaotic socio-political environment the masses face daily, including social transformations, the power imbued within human relationships and the individual’s perception of existence. Themes entail society’s ever-increasing entanglement with technology; vanity as humanity’s ruin; man’s legacy of destruction; loneliness and fragility of the self; commodified suffering and the threat of power destroying all-inclusiveness and progress. The track ‘Os Homens Ocos’ is further inspired by and translates to the title of T.S. Eliot’s poem ‘The Hollow Men,’ where both gesture to the sightlessness within the lost souls of many.

Formed in 2015, in the riff metropolis of São Paulo, Brazil, Basalt unify elements of doom, black metal and dark experimental tones, subverting musical archetypes and create new extreme audio terrains. Harkening to the dense low-end, cavernous and intense depths of the heavy sonic, Basalt fuse this fury with extraordinary ambient and atmospheric scope, incorporating a unique channelling of influences and sounds. Melding rawness and discordance with progressive and expansive breadth, Basalt truly wield aural transgression and transformation.

'O Coração Negro da Terra' was recorded and mixed by Kiko & Kexo at Estudio Duna, São Paulo, Brazil during May and July 2016. Remastered by Adam Richardson at XL Recordings, London, UK during November 2018.

In further Basalt X Ritual Productions news, the band shall release their follow-up rite in 2020.
