For the first time on vinyl the debut full-length studio album by American Black Metal band.
One of the first, and perhaps the most significant American Black Metal bands. Ritual formed in 1993. Wild Rags Records showed an interest in the band and in late 1994 – early 1995 the debut album “The Summoning” was recorded and released on CD to much praise on the international Metal scene.
Ritual's "The Summoning" is one of the greatest USBM albums to exist. While not being a very well-known band, Ritual proved highly successful with this album, if not in sales, then in songwriting capability.
If you're searching for some classic Black Metal, and you want something that is reminiscent of the earlier Black Metal scenes that was still very different and ahead of it's time, you definitely need check out this album!
