RITUAL DAY(施教日 - Shi Jiao Ri)

Ritual Day were formed in 2000 and gained a first success in 2001 with their contribution on the first Chinese death metal sampler “Resurrection of Gods”. The album was released underground and limited to 1,000 copies, but was heavily promoted in China's extreme music circles. One year later Ritual Day released their debut album Sky Lake, establishing them among the best Chinese Metal Bands and as the leading Black Metal band in their country.

The story of the band is also the story of Nong Yong, the band's lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main composer.
Zitat: Nong Yong comes from Fujian, a coastal southeastern province. He is nearing 30; the other three band members are around 23. He said his childhood growing up in the countryside was happy but difficult. Life was hard in his small and poor village. Nong worked hard at his lessons and helped his parents with farm work. The country life brought him close to nature.
Nong went to high school in the city and, bowing to the influence of Taiwanese pop songs, started playing acoustic guitar. After graduating, he worked as a biscuit salesman and as cook. In the early 1990s, heavy metal became popular in China and bands like Tang Dynasty and Overload inspired him to play rock and change his life. Although many friends thought Beijing too distant, Nong thought of it as the political, economic, and most especially as the cultural center of China. He arrived in Beijing in 1997 with a Yamaha electric guitar he had no idea how to play.
Here he organized a small band and held rehearsals in his farmhouse. He wasn't clear about what music he was going to make, as he was still searching for a musical identity. In 1998, his brother sent him two death metal CDs from abroad. The music's darkness was the channel he had been looking for to express pain and joy.
In the beginning of May 2002,the band started at their debut full-length album. They gave the lots of shows, during which they recorded the debut album and fans response very good at gigs. Despite troubles from the Government in China more than 5,000 times copies of the the album were sold. Their music and lyrics are deeply inspired by Samael, Dissection, Emperor and Mayhem. Despite their death metal associations, there is no violence in Ritual Day lyrics. Instead of Satan worshipping, most the lyrics describe the beauty of the darkness, the vast scenes of warfare and the black inner scene of themselves. To Nong Yong the three most important virtues are honesty, bravery and diligence.
