With the release of “RITUS” on May 18th 2018 comes Florian Grey’s second album and pushes the listener even deeper in the world of his music. What began as a solo project has grown more and more
into total new thing; a hybrid between a band and a solo artist, not least due to numerous live concerts. Besides Florian's three co-musicians, producer Hilton Theissen (Dark Millenium, Akanoid,
Seadrake) and Hell Boulevard frontman Matteo VDiva Fabiani support the project with their competence and experience and formed und the direction of Grey a strong unit that made "RITUS" possible.
Again great melodies mixed with powerful sounds and epic lyrics creating a dark rock epos wich combines symphonic, rock, alternative, pop, metal, 80ies synth pop and dark rock on one album. Florian
Grey shows with this album a completely new side with more corners and edges. Compared to "Gone", "RITUS" is faster, more direct, harder, louder and no less mysterious and lyrical than its
predecessor. In this album, Florian Grey deals with themes and feelings that affect everyone - love, revenge, hope, pain, devotion.
