Invisible Oranges and Metal Injection both named Void Ritual as one of "10 Underground Bands You Need to Hear". Upon just hearing the one-man band's debut full-length, 'Heretical Wisdom', I'd have to agree. The New Mexico native is able to capture frosty, barren wastelands through eight solid cuts of traditional black metal. It's a bulky, fierce piece with cold lyrics, a cannonade of percussion and riffs that worship Europe's 90s black metal revolution. With metal this good, I'll stand at the frozen altar anytime.
