Noiz Ritual Unveils "Abuse Me" Video: A Grungy Glimpse into the Queen-Dramatitis Epidemic

In a world where seeking validation has become an addiction, Athens-based alternative rock/metal quartet Noiz Ritual presents their latest musical offering, "Abuse Me." This gritty single, slated to be featured on their forthcoming EP "Embrace The Noiz," plunges headfirst into the depths of what they've aptly dubbed "queen-dramatitis" – the insatiable craving for attention at any cost.
The accompanying video for "Abuse Me" serves as a raw portrayal of this affliction, capturing the essence of a society consumed by its own need for validation. Directed with artistic fervor by Gabriel Varela and shot by the talented lensman George Mylonas, the visuals offer a visceral experience that perfectly complements the song's thematic depth.
Musically, "Abuse Me" delivers a sonic punch, with Nick Christolis's razor-sharp guitar work carving out a space for John Varvas's impassioned vocals to shine. Mantalena Krikelli's thunderous drumming and the distorted bass lines courtesy of Yul Sada (standing in for Ilias Xirogiannis) provide the driving force behind this anthemic track.
But Noiz Ritual doesn't stop there. Their upcoming EP, "Embrace The Noiz," is set to take listeners on a captivating sonic voyage through the band's diverse influences. This musical journey spans from the grunge-infused melodies of the '90s to the alternative rock and nu-metal echoes of the early 2000s. With tracks like "I Wanna Know," "Feeling Death Inside," and "Robocop" rounding out the EP, listeners are in for a treat that's equal parts nostalgia and innovation.
From production and vocals by Nick Christolis to the mixing prowess of Ektoras Tsolakis and the mastering finesse of Steve Lado, every aspect of "Embrace The Noiz" has been carefully crafted to deliver a sonic experience like no other.
Noiz Ritual's journey has been one marked by passion and perseverance. Formed in 2022 by a collective longing for the grunge era and the alternative rock movements that followed, the band has overcome challenges – including lineup changes and geographical distances – to emerge stronger than ever. With each member bringing their own unique flair to the table, Noiz Ritual stands poised to make a lasting impact on the rock/metal scene.
As they gear up for the release of "Embrace The Noiz" in May 2024, Noiz Ritual invites fans old and new to join them on this exhilarating musical odyssey. In a world fraught with noise, theirs is a voice that demands to be heard. So crank up the volume, embrace the chaos, and let the noiz take you on a journey you won't soon forget.
