Mantic Ritual

Originally referred to as Meltdown, Pittsburgh, PA’s Mantic Ritual joined the brand new millennium thrash revival circa 2006 and wasted short amount of time seeking fame and fortune in LA, where they drove to showcase their music and spread some demos. The ploy worked well, and by past due the following yr, bandmembers Dan Wetmore (vocals, acoustic guitar), Jeff Potts (acoustic guitar), Ben Mottsman (bass), and Adam Haritan (drums) got moved there completely and been contracted to Nuclear Blast, who recommended they look for a fresh name and loaded them off to Germany to record with respectable maker Andy Classen, of Holy Moses popularity. The latter’s intensive encounter behind the planks (he’s also created albums by Krisiun, Belphegor, Dew-Scented, while others) became an ideal match for Mantic Ritual’s classicist revision from the Bay Region thrash template (especially similar to Exodus and Vio-Lence), which ultimately took form with debut recording Executioner, released in early 2009.
