Void Ritual is a one man project of Daniel Jackson (Also of Ancestral Oath), from Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The EP’s name, Holodomor refers to a man-made famine and extermination by hunger; which resulted in the deaths of millions of people from the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. This incredibly tragic chapter in history took place during 1932 and 1933.

Tridroid Records will be releasing Void Ritual’s Holodomor on cassette, this coming August. While the album has been available as a digital download for some time, Holodomor’s physical release will include the previously unreleased track Mourning the Dawn. After I’ve listened to Holodomor several times, it is very apparent that Void Ritual boasts a superb multi-instrumentalist and vocalist.

There is no denying, to my ears, that the Black Metal created by Void Ritual is a standout among underground Metal I’ve listened to thus far, this year. This 4 song EP as a whole is a fascinating listen, into just how grand Black Metal can be represented from the USA. There are blackened melodic moments to savor, with Mourning The Dawn; while the fiercely extreme side of Void Ritual’s blackened sound is served up with the opening track: Cold. The title track is nothing short of amazing and delivers on its terrifying theme, at an epic 6:23.

The totality of blackened sensations that overtook me after listening to Holodomor had me running to my front office window; peering to see if a sinkhole leading to the fiery depths of hell formed in the middle of the street. Yes, Void Ritual is that good. Metal be thy name. – Stone
