Full Moon Ritual Interview
1.Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
1) Full Moon Ritual is a band born in 2010 by the union of Ruina (Guitar), Zat (guitar), Nerul (drums), Inviktus (Bass) and Arioch (vocals).
The five musicians already active in the past in various underground metal bandS, decide to play something more introspective giving life to this black metal band.
The current line up consists of four members, as guitarist (Zat) and then the bass player (Inviktus) left the band to play in other musical projects.
