WL//WH Track Of The Day: NIGHT RITUAL “Forget Your Face”

Track Of The Day Night Ritual 

Perhaps some of you may recall Philly‘s goth rocker Lord Travvis and his shadowy and poignant dark post-punk infused of Americana leanings, flavoured by a heavy dose of low-budget “B” horror movies and sci-fi flicks.
After the S/T debut cassette EP at the end of last year, followed by a brief parenthesis as NØN, our man is back under the new moniker, Night Ritual, while the intensity and the allure of his guitar-laden darkness are the same as ever.

A dreadfully gloomy, somehow darkly romantic, gothic blues, as intimate and sensual, as it is disturbing and mysterious with monotonous pounding drum machines elicit sparkling twangy 6-string melodies, awash by sparse, icily desolate synth lines, that brighten and move upon the face of the claustrophobic doom, slithering and shuddering in abrasive, seething, urgent riffs swirling together with deeply haunted male vocals longing in isolated fear to be set free from the demented shadows of the past.
