Aetheric guitars, dreamy sounds and a voice from a different world – The Ritualists let a music rise again that seemed to be forgotten. Names such as David Bowie, Velvet Underground, Duran Duran or Suede pop up in the mind, artists, that broke down frontiers and pushing expression and performance into complete new heights through absolute devotion.
It is the legacy of those bands driving The Ritualists. Their soundwork is made of six decades of psychedelic music summed up for nowadays and ready for the pop cultural history books. "Painted People" is a kaleidoscope of alien-kind tones, structured and built up to catchy rock songs. Post Punk and Progressive Rock commit a colorful yet melancholic union and grow to cascadian chorusses carying the listener to a new world. An absolute timeless album and a debut promising a big future!
