Sonic Ritual are a relatively new outfit from the lovely city of Stockholm. Originally founded in late 2007, the band has gone through a few line-up changes before settling down in the present shape, as guitarist Linnéa explains: "The band started like most bands; an idea you get when you're out getting drunk with friends. Me, Henke and guitar player Johan Wallin wanted to form something in between Hawkwind and Motörhead. Christoffer joined on bass and we had a lead singer for a brief period before both he and Johan dropped out. The three of us recorded a demo called "Rat eyed Ghoul" that we released on limited edition cassette in August 2008, but the band really got going for real when our drummer Viktor joined in the first doomed days of 2009. Since then we've been playing live a lot and released a 7" named "Take the Edge off" on Black Juju. There's also a 12", with the demo tape songs, on the way, in addition to this split album on High Roller Records that we're really excited about." Sanctuary In Blasphemy. What a strange name to begin with! Me personally, I immediately thought of a fierce Black Metal band in full corpsepaint when I saw their monicker for the first time. This is far from the truth however, as drummer Jens does not fail to stress: "We are not a Black Metal band. We all agree that Sludge is a good word to describe our music. Kyuss and Dystopia are some of my biggest musical influences, at least when it comes to writing music for Sanctuary In Blasphemy
