“I am extremely grateful that a friend pointed me in the direction of Dragon Ritual Drummers a few years ago. In the intervening years I have had the pleasure and opportunity to receive and review several of their releases and I have yet to be disappointed by the quality of the performances and production values. These folks know how to use their instruments to attain the best possible results.”

“There are certain ritual expectations to be adhered to, such as NOT mixing the ingredients, merely stabbing them with a knife. A checklist is provided for you to record your first creation of each elixir as well as "Crawdentials" (both wallet card and certificate for your wall).”

“The Dragon Ritual Drummers make a special guest appearance on Eat My Pagan Ass podcast with host Luckylicious.”

“Started ten years ago as part of a pagan men's group in Niagara region, the Dragon Ritual Drummers have grown in popularity to become the world's number one pagan drum troupe.”

“I did something with this CD which I seldom do. Even though I had several review items waiting already, I slipped my headphones on and began listening, even as I was working on other items.”

“What amazing energy these seven Canadian guys from Niagara Falls have and what power in their magik and their drums. Whatever inside line Utu has with the rain spirits, his offering and honoring worked and the rain held off while the crowd danced ecstatically to the primal beat these men created.”

"It's a dream come true," says Marco "Drago" Canzoneri, a member of the DRD. "Drumming is a way we connect to the Earth and the common theme today is connecting with the Earth, the ancestors and connecting with the drum. There aren't words that can describe this amount of drums and the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach and in your heart."
