BloodFeast Ritual: With guitar nerd’s wet dream….

BloodFeast Ritual – Altars Of Sacrifice

Los Angeles death shred BloodFeast Ritual have unleashed their debut EP Altars Of Sacrifice six days ago. A five-track introduction ranging from technical death metal to melodic shred, the release’s lyrical content shares the trio’s love for 80’s horror movies, HP Lovecraft, and general blasphemy. Line-up: Michael Bala – Lead/Rhythm guitars/Bass Hunter Gurney – Lead/Rhythm guitars/Bass David Ainsworth – Vocals.

BloodFeast Ritual states, «This EP is a love letter to Death Metal. Old School, Modern, Technical and Brutal; we love all of the aspects of death metal as a genre, and we wanted to show that with this EP. We tried to display our influences by dramatically changing the vibe of each song». The track Chopped And Buried is a tribute to the scary movie The Evil Dead and has many hints of early 90’s death metal.

Heavy, fast, and brutal, the EP’s opener Grave Fodder resurrects the dead with its shred, guttural vocals and slamming assault of 90’s influenced Swedish death metal. Followed by No More Room In Hell is a salute to Dawn Of The Dead and hits fans of old school Carcass and Cannibal Corpse with its brutal slam section.

EP closer Fetid Offering, was the first song written by guitarist Hunter Gurney for the band and is about the video game Bloodborne. The track erodes what neck muscles you have left from headbanging with its blunt force trauma of The Black Dahlia Murder meets Necrophagist. The track Eternally Molested By The One Most Foul, where listeners can expect a guitar nerd’s wet dream as guitarists Michael Bala and Hunter Gurney showcase the rippage with four excitable solos.

BloodFeast Ritualwas formed in the barren lands of Los Angeles when guitarist Hunter Gurney found fellow guitarist Michael Bala shredding at a Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA. With the shock and awe of each other’s talent, a friendship was quickly formed, and soon after the two mad lads began jamming, jellying, and collaborating in all senses of the phrase.

Between the two of them, there was a strong, electrical creative energy that compelled the pair to both write songs. The young shredders were very inspired by HP Lovecraft, 80s horror, and older style death metal. Hunter added his own flavor to Michael Bala’s existing songs, and Michael Bala helped Hunter Gurney expand his own songwriting abilities. The pair worked very quickly, and composed a handful of crunchy tunes; soon after, it was time to find other members to join their cult for brutality.

Through a mutual friend, the duo met growler David Ainsworth. Michael Bala and Hunter Gurney were taken aback at David Ainsworth’s ability to perform metal vocals in a wide variety of styles, and suddenly the wolf pack became a terrifying trio of tremendous heavy metal titans. The Mississippi Mutant aka David Ainsworth became close with Michael Bala and Hunter Guerney and joined them on their quest for death metal domination.

After a few solid months in the practice room, the trio decided it was time to hit the studio. Five songs for annihilation were chosen to be recorded and were executed with surgical precision, under the watchful eye of Charlie Waymire from Ultimate Studios. Michael Bala and Hunter Gurney shared bass duties on the recording, and vocalist David Ainsworth injected his vocal venom from with lyrics of demons and eldritch horrors. Showcasing a range from technical death metal to melodic shred, the trio’s sonic devastation Altars Of Sacrifice (EP) was completed and set to assault the masses on July 24th, 2020.

2020 is proving to be a big year for BloodFeast Ritual. The band is beginning their journey, and they appreciate each and every one that has encouraged them, either in the form of inspiration or those that have taken the time to pass on a kind word. Especially during the current age of Covid.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4522 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
