Space God Ritual
- CatalogBilocation 28
Space God Ritual was formed in 2010 and has had a rotation of artists at the helm. Three brave souls have faced untold horrors, both eerie and pestilent, barely escaping with their lives. All this to return with their lurid tales. Another grimoire in the Doom Metal genre is about to creak open its binding.
From their inception Space God Ritual has always had one goal: to convey the mysteries and cosmic horror of H.P Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. In 2011 these bards of the strange began their journey and quickly after forming recorded their first demo: Beyond the Beyond. After a short stint of playing live shows, the members parted only to reconvene a year later and record a second demo: Pay the Price.
In 2013 R’lyeh Beckons and Eldritch Tales were released upon an unsuspecting world. In R’lyeh Beckons, their first official album, they sent us down into the depths of the sea to witness the horror of the dreaming city and its corrupted denizens. In Eldritch Tales, their sophomore effort, they took us on a journey through dark countries teaming with cyclopean horrors.
Presently, these scholars of the strange watch and wait; reading the ancient books and the philosophies no man was ever meant to decipher. Who knows what horror these mad bards will weave next; when the stars are right and dark inspiration strikes!

What makes Space God Ritual more worthy of your attention than other stoner rock acts? They have that 70’s fuzzy guitar tone, occult overtones and riffs aplenty. But what they have that sets them apart is the sense of foreboding and drama that you would, ironically, find in a lovecraftian novel.
It all comes together for a doom-soaked experience with plenty of kick to the drums and dark, groovy riffs that slide right into place.
Eldritch Tales is full of tragic figures from doomed men of science to (nec)romantic women, all of which make suitable subject matter for downtuned riffs.
The aspect that causes, and will cause, a person’s ear to hunger for more of the Ritual is the almost dramatic sound found in every song.
