about

Void Ritual Albuquerque, New Mexico

Void Ritual is the work of Daniel Jackson, known also for his work in Ancestral Oath. Void Ritual was born out of a desire to create something as ugly, hateful and callous as the world we live in.

The title of the first EP, 'Holodomor' is taken from a man-made famine which killed millions of Ukranian people in the 1930s. This is the sort of human behavior which gave Void Ritual its birth.

Track Name: Heaven's Gate
Unyielding faith
I leave this vessel eternally
I leave this earth
To join the others who've died with me


This body is a vehicle
Restraining me from destiny
Unfettered by life and love
I hear the stars whisper my name
The spirit of man is poisoned
His acts are vile and obscene
This world shall be wiped clean
Recycled and reborn


Unyielding faith
I leave this vessel eternally
I leave this earth
To join the others who’ve died with me


I aspire to reach the next level
I shall be more than I’ve been
Beyond what a man can know
I shall obey hegemony

Possessed by two lives from beyond
They pass their knowledge on to me
They’ve seen what I’ve only dreamed of
Removed from man’s atrocity

Enter Heaven’s Gate
Track Name: Benevolent Mother
God whispers in Mother’s ear
He whispers of power eternal
She listens to his honeyed words
Delusion incarnate

God gathers a flock for Mother
She tells them the end is here
Her burden to spread His wisdom
Their fortune shall be her cross

Defectors are crushed and beaten
Dissenters are left for dead
Mother loves discipline
The flock must never stray

God whispers of life eternal
Now Mother must set them free
Her hands around their throats
Self-fulfilling prophecy
Track Name: Temple of the Sun
Forty-eight dead
No one hears their voices
Hands clasped in prayer
But no one hears them

In a star formation
They all breathed their last
Beating the end of the world
Before it could claim them

More cherished than God’s own blood
They sought to best their savior
Burning the halls of their faith
To cleanse them ‘fore heaven

Rose eternal cross
The altar erected
They’ve brought upon a brand new age
But nothing changes
