There are two artists named Rite. 1) Occult black metal from Sweden. http://rite.bandcamp.com/ 2) 1994 - The band is formed in Mikkeli, Finland. Jarkko Laatikainen, Juha Kivikanto and Sami Lintunen, together with bass player Harri Valkonen played together in a band called Caricature, but as the band's founder Perttu Noponen left the group, the rest of the guys wanted to continue with a different name and a different focus. 1995 - First gigs were played and the first demo tape was recorded including a Black Sabbath cover "Wizard". A second guitarist was needed, so Tero Pantsar joined Rite.
