SHAMAN RITUAL - Sinister Totem - Out Now On Tape


Shaman Ritual hail from Finland and Sinister Totem is their first recording. This is black metal with a melodic touch and tight execution. Deeply entrenched in their regional roots while at times reminiscent of the epic achievements of Dissection and yet, a subtle tribal approach roams underneath an avalanche of riffs and pounding drums. 

Amidst an era of cavernous experimentation and sheer bestiality, Shaman Ritual's sound is a throwback to times so glorious.
