Formed in late 2010 by former Imagika lead guitarist Steven Rice and drummer Wayne DeVecchi, Kill Ritual is completed by former Eldritch guitarist Roberto Proietti, former Dark Angel bassist Danyael Williams and Bay Area vocalist Josh Gibson. Kill Ritual have signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their debut album ‘The Serpentine Ritual’, which finds the band unleashing 11 tracks of straight-up metal that is both modern and classic while retaining the legacy of their past bands.

Commented Steven: “After the demise of Imagika, Wayne and I decided to form a new band that would bring life to the music we had been working on after Imagika called it a day. We had a goal in mind of writing music that reflected our influences from Thrash, to Classic, Progressive, Power, whatever-kicks-ass Metal and this required bringing in experienced players that have been there and done that. We were lucky enough to come in contact with Roberto and Danyael, who had the kind of pedigree and experience we were definitely looking for. Having both been in bands that have released numerous albums worldwide and toured extensively, they are a perfect fit for this new band. The missing element was, of course, vocalist Josh, who came into the band with the work ethic, experience and attitude that is essential as a vocalist to help the songs take on a life of their own. His unique and identifiable vocal style is the change we needed from our past projects as we definitely had the idea of Kill Ritual taking a new direction from our collective past bands and I think we have achieved that. I mean, what's the point of rehashing what you've already done? I feel the four rough demo tracks we have released show this and are only a hint of what's to come."
