Chugga Ritual, the one-man extreme music project of Bo Skullbanger out of Singapore, returns with ‘In Trance-lah’, an album to celebrate 30 years of his journey in writing, recording, and playing music since 1991 with bands such as Fractured Skull, Manifest, and Urbankarma.
In Trance-lah, which was released last December 18th, 2021, is a 10 song album that features 5 songs from Chugga Ritual and from Cryo Inferno, Necrolestes, Sungei Seleter Blues Experience, Munky Pants, and Orkes Biar Batik (Munky Pants is the band of Skullbanger’s three sons). The Chugga Ritual segment of the album sees greater experimentation with Skullbanger fusing swing jazz beats, surf rock guitar stylings, D n B drum sounds, and black metal riffs to the signature Chugga Ritual low tuning heavy distortion chuggery.
