More Info

"it was in the fall of 2016 that trepaneringsritualen in the shape of th.oth XIX graced the maschinenfest stage with one of their infamous rituals, and naturally this is mandatory to be documented via the raubkauf series. trepaneringsritualen has made quite a name for itself, with the signature ddsindustri sound since 2008, an especially vile brew of upfront electronic noise, feedback and agitating night-rhythms, fuelled by eclectic references to all kinds of magick.

the set presented on oberhausen ritual is a concise representation of their musical output so far, familiar tracks alternating with unheard ones, all coalescing into an intoxicatingly vile stream of sound, clocking in well under 40 minutes, yet leaving nothing to be desired.

its with the bleak abyss of immaculate & incorporeal that the listener gets sucked into the otherworld that is trepaneringsritualen, with th.oth XIXs trademark vibrant, guttural vocals kicking in on a black egg, and the 7th man offering the first appearance of the drums of death. from there, its a constant buildup, with every track adding more of the rituals raw, primordial force, culminating in the glorious he who is my mirror. and its that grand finale which also best exemplifies his crossover credibility with other extreme music scenes (i.e. metal).

the success of trepaneringsritualen doesnt simply come from producing led-heavy death industrial, it comes from being unique and authentic. originality and dedication, simplicity and a more than convincing overall picture to which this live document adds an important feature."
