RITUALIZATION are the gathering of four individuals who share the same ideas about the way death metal must be played. Infamist’s initial purpose was to bring another musical incarnation to the light of darkness; he began to jam with Blastum (warhammers) in late 2005 - early 2006 until Warchangel joined the fold in September 2006 to take care of vokill duties, soon followed by Krig (pulse of the dead + ghouls vomit). Four tracks were recorded in April 2007 in their ritual chamber, this rehearsal tape was meant to spread the name of the band.
In March 2008, RITUALIZATION performed their very first ritual in Colmar, France with death metal fellows BLOODY SIGN and NECROS then the band recorded the « The abduction mass » demo in Spring ; this tape contains four tracks of brutal and obscure death metal plus a cover of the mighty Finnish gods of bestial black/death metal ARCHGOAT, « Black messiah ». This demo was unleashed through the death metal Swedish label BLOOD HARVEST / ZOMBIE RITUAL and it’s been sold out to this day.
In 2009, RITUALIZATION focused on gigs and played with bands like TERMINAL WAR, DISGUST, VORTEX OF END, the Spanish Offensors PROCLAMATION, the Italian Nuclear warmongers BLASPHEMOPHAGHER, the death metal sacrilegious force known as PURGE, the black/death metal conclave VORKREIST or even the purveyors of darkened death metal BLOODY SIGN among others. Meanwhile the band still worked on new material in order to hit the studio the following year to record the material for their upcoming releases.
2011 was a prominent year as Set enters the coven as second axe wielder in summer to increase the horde’s sonic onslaught. The band accepted IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS’s proposal for a noble vinyl release and decided to rerelease « The abduction mass » longtime sold out demo as a 12-inch LP with bonus tracks.
Meanwhile a pact was made with the black / death metal longtime allies known as TEMPLE OF BAAL to create a split release under the wings of the latter’s label, Agonia records. This unholy coven rears two different musical faces through the celebration of death metal fundaments and « The vision of fading mankind » was released in late November 2011 as digipack and noble vinyl format. RITUALIZATION’s share is made of two unreleased tracks and one cover of Peruvian death metal gods MORTEM, « The devil speaks in tongues ».Regarding RITUALIZATION’s other releases, more malignant seeds have been planted as well and a 7-inch ep will be unleashed through their loyal label BLOOD HARVEST. The ritualists performed live rituals in France with TEMPLE OF BAAL, BLACKLODGE, VORTEX OF END, MASSGRAVE, CHRISTICIDE, MALHKEBRE among other hordes and abroad for the first time on two occasions. DETEST RECORDS brought the coven to Bruxelles, Belgium with French black/death profanators NECROBLOOD and IRON BONHEAD welcomed the five piece conclave for the international black/death metal gathering known as RITUAL FOR THE DEAD which took place in Berlin, Germany in early November with NECROHOLOCAUST, DIE UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN, SADOMATOR, VOIDS OF VOMIT and so on...
RITUALIZATION bring forth an unadulterated vision of death metal and pay homage to bestial legions such as INCANTATION, ANGELCORPSE, ARCHGOAT, IMMOLATION, CENTURIAN/NOX, NAKED WHIPPER, RAVAGER/HACAVITZ and many, many more minions of audial darkness,,...Channelling obscure death metal on stage and unleashing releases forged in the faithful tradition of what death metal must be, that is RITUALIZATION’s purpose...
