Almost two years since the release of their acclaimed second full length “Higher Power“, Finnish metallized hardcore act RAVAGE RITUAL are back with a new EP called XVIII, and today we’re giving you the exclusive first listen of their crushing new song called “I”!
RAVAGE RITUAL was founded in fall 2011. Hailing from Seinäjoki, Finland, the band has released two full-lengths along with several smaller releases. The latest LP titled as ”Higher Power” was released in late 2016 and now the band is working on new material shceduled to be out later this year. Sworn in the name of the True Northern Holy Terror, Ravage Ritual forms an alliance of pure negative energy and spiritual power.
Spiced up by the amazing cover art from Razoreater, the digital release of “XVIII” comes out via Powertrip Records, while CDs will be available via Unquiet Records. The digital and CD versions of the record will be out this Friday, August 10th, and will have its release show at this year’s Ieperfest in Belgium! The following day, the 11th, the band will play at Özzfest, Germany. 7” vinyl edition will be released later this year.
“This song is a one out of three songs from the upcoming EP titled as XVIII. It represents Ravage Ritual anno domini MMXVIII. Raw and pure negative hardcore sworn in the name of the True Northern Holy Terror.”
