KILL RITUAL's debut album, "The Serpentine Ritual", was released last October via Scarlet Records. The CD was recorded and engineered by KILL RITUAL lead guitarist Steve Rice at Fang Studios in San Mateo, California and Fossil Sound in San Jose, California. The mix and the mastering were handled by Andy La Rocque of KING DIAMOND fame at his Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden. La Rocque also makes a guest appearance on the CD with the ending solo on the track "Coat Of Blood".

The "The Serpentine Ritual" cover art was designed by Jobert Mello for Sledgehammer Graphix (SABATON, PRIMAL FEAR).
