Bassist and Drummer for upcoming Tour Announced

For the last few months you’ve watched us shuffle around getting ready for this tour. You’ve seen members leave because they can’t commit to touring, others jump in to help us with gigs we had committed to…. to now.

After searching long and hard for the right people to do this tour, we’re one step closer to what we have been searching so very hard for….

Let me start by saying this… Touring isn’t for everyone. It takes a lot of commitment and a lot of time and money. Unless you’re Black Sabbath or Metallica you can’t just hand a Million Dollar check over to a new member and welcome them aboard. As most touring musicians that are trying to establish a name for themselves know, it’s finding people that are committed enough to leave their day jobs, with enough foresight to somehow know that there are bigger and better things for them. It’s a hard sell and not many are willing to make that commitment. You really need to be a dreamer, a realist, and motivated as all hell.

That brings me to this….

We’d like you to welcome Bassist and Drummer for our 2016 Spring Tour. It will be fun working with them for this tour until we find permanent members for our next album.

Beauty In The Suffering producer DieTrich Thrall (ex-Doyle, Marazene) on bass.
Alexis Von Kraven  (Moxy, Heaven’s Fire) on Drums.

Steven D. Rice – Lead Guitar, David Reed Watson – Vox
and Byron Nemeth – Lead Guitar.

We’re looking forward to touring with these guys. With over 7,000 miles of traveling, 20 cities in 26 days we will get to know each other pretty well. Please follow our tour schedule here on a group that we’ve made on Facebook

ABOUT Kill Ritual
Formed in 2010 by former members of Imagika, Dark Angel, and Eldritch, Kill Ritual launched themselves into the metal world with their debut CD “The Serpentine Ritual” in 2012 on Scarlet Records and the band was immediately rewarded with great reviews and positive reaction from fans around the world. The band then completed a US tour in the fall of 2013 and followed it up with the release of their 2014 CD “The Eyes Of Medusa” on Golden Core/ZYX and again received great press and accolades from fans worldwide.

February 2015: Kill Ritual recruit Vocalist David Reed Watson (Rage of Angels, D.N.A., Electric Messiah, The Constant) to record their new CD “Karma Machine”.

September 2015: They release their newest CD “Karma Machine” on Scarlet Records which was produced by Guitarist Steve Rice at his Fossil Sound Studios and mixed/mastered by Guitar legend, King Diamond member, Andy LaRocque at his Sonic Train Studios in Sweden.

2016 ushers in a brand new year for Kill Ritual with their new Management team, Extreme Management Group, Tone Deaf Touring, to line up their Spring 2016 Tour as well as adding second Lead Guitarist, Byron Nemeth (Amon-Ra, Sacred Heart, Byron Nemeth Group) to the mix.

We’d like to welcome Alex Von Kraven who will be sharing the stage with us, starting at NAMM and then on to our Spring Tour starting in late February. Alex has quite an impressive resume with bands like; Heaven’s Fire, Moxy, Eternal Halloween and now us. Alex uses (and abuses) Mapex Drums, Zildjian, Los Cabos Drumsticks, Evans Drumheads. Find out more about Alex on his webpage. We’re pretty excited with this new lineup and can’t wait to play together.
