Sonic Ritual

Sonic Ritual might be best known for featuring guitarist Linnéa Olsson, who was half of the female duo that fronted the excellent but shortlived The Oath in 2014. Two EPs have been recorded by this band before Olsson's Oath stint, with the style on 2009's Mother Hearse being a cool, strongly NWOBHM-influenced brand of slightly punky metal, pretty rough around the edges (the recording sounds a bit more like a demo rather than a proper album).
