Have you heard about Deadland Ritual yet? They’re a new band featuring bassist Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), guitarist Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’ Roses / Velvet Revolver) and singer Franky Perez (Apocalyptica). They recently played a show at Hellfest in Clisson, France. Video is below!
Deadland Ritual played original songs and covered songs from the members’ previous bands, including Sabbath’s “Symptom Of The Universe”, “Neon Knights” and “Sweet Leaf”, Velvet Revolver’s “Slither” and Billy Idol’s “Rebel Yell”.
Drummer Matt Sorum said, “We’re basically an independent band right now — no record deal yet, but there’s some labels talking to us. It’s great we’re out playing these new songs, ’cause once we go in and record them, they’ll be live-tested, if you will, and then hopefully will go down on record as a really cool version of what we’ve been doing live.”
Deadland Ritual made their live debut on May 28 at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, California.
