Hailing from of Seattle, BLOOD RITUAL was originally formed in 1991 by Bishop, a member of the Church of Satan, as a band monikered Impiety and dedicated to authentic Satanism.

After several line-ups, four devastating songs, and a name change, in 1992 BLOOD RITUAL was officially born. The band soon played several local shows, where they overwhelmed the fans and out-performed their headliners.

In 1993, BLOOD RITUAL released their first demo, entitled Cruciform Antithesis. Distributed internationally by the MORIBUND CULT, Cruciform received numerous praises and became a legendary demo.

The lead guitarist took ill and had a nervous breakdown, quitting the band. Mr. Gallows, whose creepy solos made him the perfect addition to BLOOD RITUAL, replaced him.

In 1995, BLOOD RITUAL returned to the studio to record their debut album for the CULT, At the Mountains of Madness. Pressing plants refusing to make the release and print shops purposely misprinting the booklet and conveniently losing the film plagued the release, delaying it until 1998.

Eventually, BLOOD RITUAL became the sole vision of Bishop, reaching its apex with the imminent release of Black Grimoire, in 2005, by The Moribund Cult.

Recorded at the Autopsy Room (3 Inches of Blood, DRAWN AND QUARTERED, INFERNAL LEGION) and mastered at Nettleingham Audio (Engorged, Lord Gore, SARGEIST, LEVIATHAN, XASTHUR, INFERNAL LEGION), Black Grimoire has been hailed as even more of a classic than its predecessor.
