I can put this in a very short way: RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE from Canada play raw Black / Death Metal in the old school tradition. To extend this not very detailed description a bit, it is to say that RITES OF THY DEGRINGOLADE write songs which oscillate between brutal blasts and waltzing mid-tempo crowned with mangy vocals, like many other bands do, too. Unfortunately, the dull production is at best of average quality and absorbs some sublte details which could have offered a bit more identity. Fans of underground Black / Death Metal should give it a chance and check out this good but by far not outstanding band. Website: www.degringolade.com.
