New York, NY -- A year and a half after waging war on the underground rap scene with their debut release The Torture Papers, Army of the Pharaohs, the supergroup spearheaded by Jedi Mind Tricks' powerhouse emcee Vinnie Paz, return with their long-awaited sophomore offering, Ritual of Battle.
Ritual of Battle revisits the supergroup's winning formula, once again featuring an incredible lineup of underground emcees, including Vinnie Paz of Jedi Mind Tricks, Outerspace, Esoteric, Celph Titled, Chief Kamachi, Reef The Lost Cauze & more. Originally conceived as a fluid movement of emcees and producers, The Army has expanded to include a few notable additions: Doap Nixon, Demoz and to the inevitable delight of long-time Jedi Mind Tricks' fans, the return of core original JMT member Jus Allah, who can be heard trading verses with Vinnie Paz on a number of head splitters, including the ferocious "Blue Steel."
Executive produced by Vinnie Paz and boasting production from Esoteric, ILL Bill, Celph Titled and others, Ritual of Battle is another raw reincarnation of the 90's-era boom bap rap that has become synonymous with Jedi Mind Tricks.
