Ritual Howls Shares ‘Thought Talk’. “It’s what they do. It’s how they get you.”

Vincent Massimino

Detroit trio, Paul Bancell (vocals, guitar), Chris Samuels (synth, samples, drum machine), and Ben Saginaw (bass) makes making this kind of music makes chic. It is as fashionable now as it is in any season. All the designers and retailer rave about things like this. And be assured, ‘Thought Talk’ is a ‘thing’.

It is off of their 4th full-length album ‘Rendered Armor’, which follows the 2018 EP. And from the weight and the heft of the instruments in ‘Thought Talk’ you can tell where their stock blossoms from.

Atmosphere, aesthetics, pounding thought patterns, and their own mix of spices, make the trio what they are: tour de force.

‘Thought Talk’ is a mix of genres, expressed in the non-traditional instruments or patterns. You want new-wave? Done. You want electronics? Done. You want techno undertones? Done. You want cinematic atmospherics done with electronic drums and fabulous guitar picking? Done, and done.

It’s what they do. It’s how they get you.

And when RITUAL HOWLS comes your way, they’ll get you too.

So, let’s march like we’re in a fashion show in our neighbor streets – and own it.

Because RITUAL HOWLS owns us now.
