Grimoire Records presents “Death Ritual”, the debut full-length album by Maryland-based doom trio Yatra, confirming the album for early January release. The record's cover art, track listing, and more have been posted.
 
Yatra is a journey into mountainous sounds, transcending into the deep forests of primeval times. Born from the ashes of the Maryland doom band Blood Raven, the new three-piece emerged in 2017 as frontman Dana Helmuth's new vehicle to embrace the darkness and doom. Confident in Maria Geisbert and Mike Tull as his new rhythm section, Helmuth's inspiration was fueled exponentially.

“Post Mortem” creates a musical landscape of intense and modern Post | Sludge | Doom metal where heavy riffs and drum beats alternate with athmospheric passages. Kristien's bewitched chants and guitarist Pieter's harsh screams create a unique vocal contrast.
