Pure Steel Records are pleased to announce the recent signing of American Heavy Metal band RITUAL. The band, led by vocalist Juan Ricardo (Sunless Sky/Wretch) recently contacted our offices to share some great news with us.
“Hello my good friend! YES. Ritual are signed to Pure Steel Records and we are reissuing our classic “Trials of Torment” album as a 30 year anniversary edition to celebrate the band’s long history. The album will feature new artwork and mastering. Also, a brand new track along with live tracks as bonus material. RITUAL will present an OFFICAL music video of the new track “Beyond the Sea” which is currently being edited“.
Ricardo further states, “RITUAL ‘The Trials of Torment‘ went to Number 1 in Germany and Belgium in the summer of 1992, but, unfortunately, we were never able to tour there. So in view of this, we will soon announce a European tour of Germany and Belgium beginning from March 11th through March 18th including an appearance at the Full Metal Festival on March 16th in Niederjossa, Germany! We look forward to seeing all of you there”.
Release date of this album with further details will soon be announced. Finally, watch for the bands OFFICIAL Tour Dates in our Face Book page EVENTS section!
