Trepaneringsritualen is the solo-project of Thomas Martin Ekelund, the mastermind behind other superb acts such as Dead Letters Spell Out Dead Words and Nullvoid. Trepaneringsritualen is steeped in ritual ambience and death industrial, with the multi-pronged attack of Ekelund's hellish howls, shrieks and murmurs. Their live shows are a visceral ritual involving blood and noise. Drenched in animal blood, the bearded and leather clad Ekelund lets loose with scorched earth outpourings of growls and screams, over doomy electronics and ritual percussion. Trepaneringsritualen almost seem to act as a bridge between Scandinavian black metal and the earlier dark and ritual industrial music that characterised 
Roger Karminik's Cold Meat Industry label.
