SF Bay Area Metallers KILL RITUAL have announced the addition of drummer Koryun Bobikyan to the group’s ranks, who takes over for the recently departed Gee Anzalone (DragonForce).
Koryun is a SF Bay Area local by the way of Armenia where he performed in numerous bands (Stryfe, Sacrond, Sworn) and even performed with Ian Gillan (Deep Purple) in part with the Armenian Symphonic Orchestra. He’s also a professional violinist and drum teacher who has performed over 700 concerts.
Guitarist Steve Rice comments on the new addition to the line up: “Kore was one of the best candidates that submitted material and has an extensive professional resume in his performances as both a drummer and violinist. Being that he’s in the Bay Area is just icing on the cake. He’ll be immediately thrown into the fire recording drum tracks to our new CD which is 90% completed and ready for a 2015 release. We look forward to hitting the road once again in 2015 and productive future with our latest line up.”
KILL RITUAL are:

Danyael Laughing Bear – Bass
Koryun Bobikyan – Drums
KILL RITUAL has forged a sound where classic and modern Metal meet. It’s muscle and power driven metal ramped up with chugging dynamics to make you cuss in delight as you break your freakin’ neck.
