KILL RITUAL Signs With SCARLET RECORDS

San Francisco Bay Area thrashers KILL RITUAL have inked a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records. The band's debut album, "The Serpentine Ritual", will be released on October 30. 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".

KILL RITUAL filmed a video for the first single, "Old School Thrasher", on July 13 at Soundwave Studios in Oakland, California. Mike Sloat (MACHINE HEAD, TESTAMENT) is handling the production, directing and editing.

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

Commented Rice: "Well, the KILL RITUAL debut will at last see the light of day and we are psyched to have Scarlet Records on board for the release of the CD. The label has a ton of great bands on their roster and excellent distribution worldwide, so we can reach as many metal maniacs as possible. Get ready for some San Francisco Bay Area thrash and roll!"
