CULT RITUAL


These Florida kids kinda took a bunch of shit by storm in the late '00s. It might have been the tunes - '80s US hardcore kicked in the ass with a healthy dose of '90s DIY (I'm thinking FLAG reinterpreted by BORN AGAINST here), lots of youth and a sick heavy psych/grunge guitar, it might have been the fact that their shit always looked super cool or seemed to be hard to track down...personally I think it was The Internet. Right or wrong, I associate these meddlers with Mysterious Guy Hardcore - not like they invented it, but more like they were enveloped by it (if you aren't familiar with MGH, then please, do not delve any deeper, it is a stupid moniker that seemed to only exist on message boards and amongst people who tend to get wrapped up in things that don't really matter). After CULT RITUAL, these people formed some other bands. A couple of them I have liked, a couple of them I have not liked at all. This is the first CULT RITUAL demo.

Posers? 8 years on these boys are still punking.

MGH might have been a thing, but many of those bands are aok. Nowadays throwback goth and bands with names like "White Brain" are a thing. Most of those bands however are aok. Bands with names like MDC, AOD, DOA, DRI, SSD, COC, FOD, JFA, OHL, and MSI used to be a thing. HC was once a thing. If you like punk, you like things... things that some fuddy duddy daddy-o is now labeling as sheer "poserdom"...

Been jamming alot of Cult Ritual lately. Was able to play with them twice right around the time the YA 7" was coming out. They seemed to be rad dudes. The demo II tape is so crushing and amazing.
