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.

Comprised of members Phillip Rich (vocals), James Nelson (guitars), Paul Wood (drums), and Cole Millward (bass), Ozai sheds the skin of its former moniker, S.I.Q. - Society in Question, and becomes the next evolution. Drawing upon such influences as Dream Theater, Opeth, and Meshuggah, Ozai combines the Djent phenomenon with their own unique flavor of contemporary Progressive Metal to create music without limitation.
