Evil Hoodoo is proud to release the debut album for Girl Sweat Pleasure Temple Ritual Band. A super limited edition 300 colour splatter vinyl for HYPER RITUALS
Hyper Rituals is the debut LP from Girl Sweat Pleasure Temple Ritual Band brought to you via Sheffield’s formidable Evil Hoodoo Records.
Forming the foundations of The Pleasure Temple’s mythology, Hyper Rituals presents three slabs of ritualistic noise, that sashay between heavy-psych, krautrock and free-jazz. From the outset, frenzied walls of sound attack the listener with manic laughter, crushing drums and wailing guitars; The Pleasure Temple are out to indoctrinate the listener, screaming insistent mantras with sectarian urgency.
A skeletal framework runs throughout the record of urgent, simplistic percussion driven riffs, bounding towards infinity with Sweat’s domineering shrieks juxtaposed perfectly against the distant, echoing beauty of Hoezelle’s chants.
Ideas of power and pleasure are explored across the record. Joyous beauty found within the insanity of their rapturous noise - a search for divinity within the sheer intensity and mania of it all.
Whilst bareing much similarity to Girl Sweat’s previous releases (primitive garage rock repetitivity and intense noise interludes) Hyper Rituals is an altogether much larger sound - fully utilising the barrage created by the further 7 cult members.
True to their notorious live performances, Hyper Rituals was recorded live at Mill Unitarian Chapel in Leeds.
The release will be accompanied by a series of shows throughout the UK as well as with the release of a two part music video for Rite To Power. The first video created by and featuring Sweat and Hoezelle details an occult midnight ritual in the French countryside, released with the announcement of the record. The latter will be a live performance video in conjunction with IMPATV released when the record drops in March.
