Deadland Ritual a new heavy rock supergroup featuring absolute legends like bassist Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), vocalist Franky Perez (Apocalyptica, Scars on Broadway), drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) and guitarist Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) has dropped a new video and single. The track ‘Down In Flames’ is out now via Sonik Riot Recordings / AWAL powered by Kobalt to buy and stream.
Produced by Greg Fidelman (Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Metallica), ‘Down In Flames’ has a great, fresh sound with classic talents.
Perez commented about the name:
“Obviously we’ve been through some stuff. If you’re being honest artistically, all the turmoil of love, loss, happiness and pain in life makes its way into the music.”
Sorum commented about the formation of the group:
“I had to get used to the idea of starting from scratch again, which is good,” he says. “But I really liked the music I was hearing. It’s not your typical hard rock or metal stuff.”
“There’s a lot of times in the studio as a guitar player, you get a guitar sound and you’re trying to make it work, tweaking it. There was none of that bullshit. It just fit against his bass sound and it was really exciting to me. I get to hear my guitar against a bass guitarist that I’ve idolized forever.”
