Blending elements of doom, stoner rock, heavy psych and a sound that oozes Sabbath worship ... this is Burn Ritual. Based out of Texas, Burn Ritual is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist and producer Jake Lewis.
Hazy vocals, heavy fuzzed out riffs, and dark mysterious tones have been the goal from the beginning of the project. Started as a one man project by Jake, then later as a full band and now once again a one man band. The evolution has now come full circle.
With three bodies of work that include the debut EP Like Suffering, the LP Blood of the Raven, and now the 2020 album The Void. Burn Ritual continues to grow and mature, all the while maintaining the same passion for catchy hooks and heavy elements of the original sound. Dig in, drop out and follow the haze.
"Apparently Burn Ritual was one guy (Jake Lewis) and then became a band and now its just Lewis again, so kind of a Haunt thing going on here. This Texan doomsayer is less prolific, but has the same high standards for quality. Full length number two pays fealty to Uncle Acid and Electric Wizard and Hammer's House of Horror. In other words: catchy doomy goodness that spreads its spooky miasma for miles around. Experience this color out of space." (MetalSucks.net)
"If you like your proto-doom spliced with alittle occult rock and psych then look no further than this little gem!" (Desert Psychlist).
