Ritual Day combine black metal with folk metal and Chinese instrumentation. They have just released a brand new concept EP “Weak Light In Silence” with three songs forming a trilogy about light: “Elegy Of Twilight”, “Weak Light Of Silence” and “Blood Shed Dawn”.
“In his concrete descriptive style lyrics rich on conjectures, Frontman Nong Yong illustrated the obscure imaginations in his head interwoven between dusk and dawn, creation and destruction, light and gloom. The applied music elements are footed on the traditions of black metal and yet are not limited in styles of expression as a complex of diverse metal styles with blend-in traditional Chinese music instrumentation and soprano – a depiction of an oriental realm of black metal in melodies of highly recognizable characteristic.
Light and gloom, rise and fall – eternal enemies, their constant war lasts as long as time being, counteracting against each other’s strength, inexhaustibly. Crafty slaughterer – Ritual Day uses the sharpest blade to chop the new output into two pieces, one half sublimating in weak light, the other half in gloom falling into the endless abyss. Heavenly glorious sound of beauty; the cry of dead wood in the solitude of the nightly gloom, gods of thunder thrashing the war drums, unleashing the lamentation haunting the north lands in a sudden burst, reshaping everything on desolated grounds.”
