The Ritualists - Painted People

2019-07-29 (News)

Aetheric guitars, dreamy sounds and a voice from a different world – The Ritualists let a music rise again that seemed to be forgotten. Names such as David Bowie, Velvet Underground, Duran Duran or Suede plop up in the mind, artists, that broke down frontiers and pushing expression and performance into complete new heights through absolute devotion.

It is the legacy of those bands driving The Ritualists. Their soundwork is made of six decades of psychedelic music summed up for nowadays and ready for the pop cultural history books.

"Painted People" is a caleidoscope of alien-kind tones, structured and built up to catchy rock songs. Post Punk and Progressive Rock commit a colorful yet melancholic union and grow to cascadian chorusses carying the listener to a new world. An absolute timeless album and a debut promising a big future!

Dirk Ivens (Guitars / FX) is a man who wrote history. Since 1980 he is an influencial force in EBM and Industrial being part of bands such as Absolute Body Control, The Klinik and Dive building a monument that brilliance will survive his time.

Krautrock of the 70s is one of the roots of electronic music. As German counterpart for the larger than life Prog Rock, the freedom of this music was the right approach for the unlimited possibillities being part of the synthesizer till today. Motor!k want to pay tribute to this development and celebrate the roots of the music that they love and like for such a long time.
