ANCIENT RITES sign with Massacre Records!
The quartet hailing from Belgium and the Netherlands was formed back in the 80's, being one of the first bands to play metal with occult and historically inspired lyrics when the metal scene back then was dominated by glam and alternative music.
During the band's history, ANCIENT RITES overcame several blows of fate, including band members passing away or bad experiences with promoters and labels. But all this didn't stop the band from continuing their journey!
The band's upcoming sixth studio album "Laguz" marks a new chapter in the band's history.
It's an invitation to enter long forgotten worlds through dark/historical lyrics and music that combines fierce metal with classical orchestrations.
ANCIENT RITES' new album is set to be released in late February 2015 via Massacre Records!
