Superjoint Ritual is a New Orleans metal band formed by Phil Anselmo, Joe Fazzio, and Jimmy Bower in the early 1990s, later to be joined by Hank Williams III, and Kevin Bond. Their style can be considered a mix of Pantera's style of groove metal and hardcore punk. A small trace of black metal can be heard too. Bands like Venom, Slayer, Celtic Frost, Voivod, and Darkthrone have been noted as influences also. The name Superjoint Ritual comes from a lyric in the Darkthrone song, "The Pagan Winter." According to Bower, Anselmo wrote 70-80% of the group's music.
Despite their early '90s establishment, it wasn't until a decade later, after the folding of Pantera, that the group recorded any albums. It was then that Superjoint Ritual garnered significant TV exposure on programs such as MTV2's Headbangers Ball and Fuse TV's Uranium.
However, the group's time in the spotlight would prove short lived. A dispute between Anselmo and Fazzio led to the band's eventual split in early 2005, which was confirmed by both Hank Williams III and Jimmy Bower.
in 2014, it was confirmed that Superjoint Ritual would play together again. Superjoint's return album will be released in November 2016.

Miss May I
monster riff-fest and forcefully vocal driven statementshaped by changes both within and without. Make no mistake this isn’t an about-face album full of contrived sentiment or glossy emptiness. It’s a record where the band challenged each other towork from outside of their comfort zone, to really hone in on what makes Miss May I vital, and deliver something fully authentic and raw. On the road with friends and peers like August Burns Red, Parkway Drive, Blessthefall, Memphis May Fire, We Came AsRomans, and Whitechapel, Miss May I bring devastating fury onstage and good natured charm offstage. They’ve held their own as support for rock radio hitmakers Five Finger Death Punch and as headliners on the Alternative Press Tour. Thisis a band with diverse appeal; they fine-tunetheir punishing metallic assault with an almost “pop” sensibility when it comes to catchy memorability. The official music videos for Miss May I singles including “Deathless,” “Echoes,” “Relentless Chaos,” “Forgive and Forget,” “Hey Mister,” “Masses of a Dying Breed,” and “Day By Day” account for roughly 50 million views on YouTube, to say nothing of the fan made videos, live clips, cover versions, and audio streams. Those same anthems have been played millions of times more across streaming services and social media, embedded in the musical DNA of a generation of contemporaries and fans. Early on, vocalist Levi Benton, bassist/vocalist Ryan Neff, guitarists BJ Stead and Justin Aufdemkampe, drummer Jerod Boyd and made twoalbums with scene kingmaker Joey Sturgis, positioning themselves among titans of the burgeoning modern metalcore genre like Of Mice & Men and their fellow Ohio natives in The Devil Wears Prada. At Heart, made with producer Machine (Lamb Of God, Eighteen Visions) was something of a graduation, demonstrated by the massive sound of immediate anthem “Hey Mister,” an AltPress cover feature,and main stage validationon the Vans Warped Tour.
The slickly savage Rise of the Lion, made with legendary producer Terry Date (Pantera, Deftones, Limp Bizkit), was ample evidence that Miss May I could hang with the big dogs. The band championed the circle pits and sleeveless denim they grew up seeing at Ozzfest, inspired by groupsthathad assembled in the DIY scene, likethem,and went on to climb the heights of the metal mountains. The defiant mission statement that was Deathlessfollowed, reuniting them with Sturgis in the throes of behind-the-scenes hardshipathat saw the band nearly dissolve, but ultimately triumph. Nick Sampson (Asking Alexandria, Born Of Osiris, In Fear and Faith), who worked alongside Sturgis on Deathless, took the reigns of the instrumental section of Miss May I’snew album with the instrumental members in the Midwest. Benton collaboratedwith producer Drew Fulk (Motionless In White, Emmure, Crown The Empire), who brought out the best vocal performances of the young singer’s career thus far. Working in California, the pair was able to communicate ideas to the band back in their Michigan studio, where they’d reshape and refine the songs,until they were perfect.This process, unlike anything Miss May I had attempted before, resulted in their most fully realized album yet. Mixed by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Word Alive, Neck Deep), the band’s first record for SharpTone is truly the best of everything before, with new ambition and confidence. Shadows Insideis a monster of an album and a longtime coming. Miss May I celebrates a decade of savage metalcore and soaring melodic refrains,newly revitalized,and poised for an insurgent career renaissance;armed with unmistakable power, road hardened experience, a steadily building catalog, and unrelenting spirit, supported by a diehard community.
