Black Ritual

Welcome to the fierce world known as Black Ritual. Having been around 10 years playing in the local music scene and supporting their fellow musicians, Black Ritual is firmly
grounded in their own unique style. With their original metal, thrash, southern, power groove, and melodic sounds and influences, this band aims to stand apart from the rest. Guitarists Gary Rackley stated, “We just want to make every song its own, our own. For each song to sound
different in more ways than the last.” Forever ready to throw down whether in the studio or on the stage, this band brings the energy and the passion of music.
Coming from Charlotte North Carolina the band is as follows: Charlie Calebro - vocals,
Gary Rackley - guitar
Eddie “E-Rock”Cousins - bass
Brad Sellers-drums.
With all members having a rock solid history in playing live music, they bring heavy rhythms, blood curdling vocals, chunky guitars, and a stage performance that’s sure to get the crowd pumped and moving.
In 2008 the band released their debut album 1,000 Yard Stare.
Black Ritual has shared the stage with bands such as Exodus, Corrosion of Conformity, Obituary, Cradle of Filth, Butcher Babies, Nonpoint, Joey Belladonna from Anthrax, Fear
Factory, Adema, Carnifex, and Hate Eternal just to name a few. One thing that the crowd can be certain of is that they are going to see an amazing and unforgettable show by this band. Black
Ritual has created their mark in the metal scene and will continue to do so for years to come.


In the spirit of the New Orleans music scene (and Seattle to an extent) being in and from multiple bands is just the way of life in Columbia, SC. Although this is pretty much unknown outside of SC, things have been that way for some time and if you wanted to hear it, you created it. That being said, GRÜZER was formed in December of 2013 by six fellas very familiar in the heavy scene around Columbia and the Carolinas. Hailing from such local/regional bands as Deathvalley Driver, Diavolo, Carolyn, Shaokahn and Mean Wiener/Evil Empire just to name a few, these guys are no strangers to the game. After talking about starting this project for many years, schedules finally freed up to allow the time to make it a reality.

GRÜZER intends on drawing from our collective experience and making the best music that the six of us can possibly make. We play what we want, when we want, and have zero concern with fitting into a certain label, genre or sub-genre. Just know that when you see or hear GRÜZER, you will be getting one of the best, heaviest bands in the Southeast!
