Ritual King

From Manchester, UK Ripple Music

Ritual King from Manchester, UK

Since their inception, the band has consistently pushed the boundaries of their genre, weaving intricate tales both musically and lyrically, and taking listeners on a kaleidoscopic journey of sound. Formed in the vibrant heart of Manchester's underground metal scene in 2016, the members of RITUAL KING came together with a shared desire to create something that defied easy categorization. Each member brought their unique influences to the table: from classic hard rock to the otherworldly echoes of progressive psych, elements of folk, and the gritty underpinnings of stoner rock. The result is a heady mix that’s as meditative as it is mosh-worthy.

RITUAL KING's live performances are a testament to their musical prowess and electric chemistry, notably touring the UK and Europe since 2017 and embarking on tours with the likes of Weedpecker, gaining slots at Freak Valley Festival in Germany as well as support slots playing alongside the likes of Atomic Bitchwax, Nebula and Colour Haze. On stage, they transcend the confines of the studio to truly bring their music to life. This dynamic energy has garnered them a fanbase across the UK and beyond.

The band's discography showcases their evolution and range. From the raw, visceral creations of their early 2018 EP entitled "Earthrise", the riff-laden journeys of their 2020 first self-titled album, RITUAL KING is never content to rest on their laurels. Each release is an invitation into their world, one where musical conventions are challenged, and where listeners are encouraged to lose themselves in the band's expansive sonic landscapes.
