Ritual Dictates – Inspired by a wide array of styles and instruments, the music itself has straightforward elements of metal and grind, with detours into anything from black metal to good time rock and roll. Picking up on inspiration from their respective previous bands Allfather and Angel Grinder, ex-3 Inches of Blood members Justin Hagberg and Ash Pearson (drummer of Revocation) are continuing down the heavy metal path while fusing their eclectic influences of black, grind, death metal and classic rock into interesting new places.
“Give In To Despair”, the first full length offering by Ritual Dictates, was recorded in Vancouver and released through Artoffact Records in early 2020.
