The Underground Ritual was an EP that found its way into the hands of the original founding fathers of Moss, circulated with the initial 115 copies of Cthonic Rites (115 marking the anniversary of the birth of HP Lovecraft). One long, 25 minute track that howls of reverberation, distortion and largely guitar focused sound with both the drums and vocals taking backseat. Remember how we told you we would never post a live recording that overshadowed a band, or portrayed them in the wrong light? Well this is Moss down to a tee, performing their voidal doom invoked drone to the very limits of humanly conceivable horror. Another excellent audial interpretation of what shock and fear Lovecraft might have invoked during his time here on earth, if you have never heard Moss – the time has arrived.
Moss knows the gate. Moss is the gate. Moss is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Moss. They know where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. They know where They have trod earth’s fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread.
