GENOCIDAL RITES to release new tape via HELLS HEADBANGERS, prepare debut album


Today, Hells Headbangers announces March 10th as the international release date for a brand-new EP from Genocidal RitesExsanguination of the Gods, on cassette tape format.

A new band helmed by old souls, Ohio’s Genocidal Rites have been waging war on the American Midwest the past couple years via a couple EPs and especially their mesmerizing live shows. Fittingly, Hells Headbangers makes a blood pact with the band on their home soil, with the first fruit being the new EP Exsanguination of the Gods.

No more but certainly no less, Exsanguination of the Gods is as concise of an introduction to Genocidal Rites as any. The feral frequencies across this three-song/nine-minute assault are indeed black, white, and red all over: the Ross Bay gods of war loom large here, as do paradigmatic Black Witchery and especially Proclamation. No progression and no compromise, Genocidal Rites proceed to lay waste with a blown-out, blackgrinding iteration of bestial metal that suggests plenty of perversion still to come. And Exsanguination of the Gods is but a foretaste of the band’s forthcoming debut album for Hells Headbangers

In the meantime, hear the brand-new track “Of Genesis, Of Genocide” HERE at Hells Headbangers‘ Bandcamp. Preorder info for Exsanguination of the Gods can be found HERE. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
