Publish date:

Legendary bassist Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath, vocalist Franky Perez (Apocalyptica, Scars on Broadway), drummer Matt Sorum (Guns N’Roses, Velvet Revolver) and guitarist Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) have launched a new supergroup, Deadland Ritual, and will be touring Europe this summer. A single, ‘Down In Flames’, appeared in late 2018. “I had to get used to the idea of starting from scratch again, which is good,” says Geezer. “But I really liked the music I was hearing. It’s not your typical hard rock or metal stuff.”
