    1985 demo#2 by a U.S. band called Ritual. I got this through tapetrading ages ago and I don't know WHICH Ritual this is. I don't think it's the Texas one because this Ritual plays very very well. It's a GREAT demo with KILLER solo's and a GREAT Mercyful Fate cover. Vocals are a mix of old King Diamond, Cities & Wyzard. Music like Mercyful Fate, Damien Thorne & Helstar. It was simply listed as "1985 demo#2". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    1. Guitar Solo / Evil (Mercyful Fate-cover)
    2. Killer Eye
    3. Instrumental

    This demo and their 1st demo (of 1984) it's from a US band no-one really knows from where they were.
    The first demo is a shorty tape also. More or less 10 minutes as this one.
    It existed on lists on the old tape trading scene but i never could grab one before.
    Thanks.

    AWESOME, CULT stuff!!! Although the first track suffers from a raw thin sound and sounds a bit like a rehearsal, the other two are of far better sounding quality and aside from the above similaries they bring also to mind early RUTHLESS, DARK AGE, "Wage Of Mayhem" era NASTY SAVAGE and OVERKILL of their "Power In Black" demo era and songs like "Death Rider"..... "Killer Eye"" is a monumental tune!!! A must!! Mega thanx for this gem MIKAEL!!! Salutations!! porosimetal

    It's possible this is the NJ band in their very early days, they were a commercial power metal band and I could see how they might have evolved from this style in 1985. That's my best guess.
