Blood Ox Ritual

Songfacts®:

  • Skinflint is a metal trio from Botswana. Running to 5 minutes 25 seconds, "Blood Ox Ritual" is a song that is said to deal with the ritual of slaughtering oxen to appease evil spirits and cleanse the land. Ozzy Osbourne take note! Fairly uptempo and reasonably melodic, this is a track that would not be amiss on an Iron Maiden album. >>
