• Image of RITUAL CONTROL – INOCULATION 7"

RITUAL CONTROL started in early 2013, drawing members from a healthy assortment of West Coast hardcore acts. After a demo recorded at Oakland’s Dutch Oven a few months in, the band’s first appearance was a modest side show at Austin’s Chaos In Tejas. A few months later, with an EP on Residue and a new guitarist in tow, RC hit the northwest, and then recorded the Inoculation ep at Atomic Garden in Palo Alto. Sharp, heavy, and disconcerting hardcore – maybe they sound like the product of a combination of the members’ other bands, or maybe they just sound like RITUAL CONTROL.
