I have banged on about Ritual for some time but they really are fucking great.
They just go from strength to strength and a few weeks back released their debut album through Island/Decisive Records.
It’s in parts trippy, grimy, atmospheric and drop-dead melodic.
Most great music is best heard at night with the lights off but this is one album that practically demands to be heard at that time of the day. At times dark and doom-laden but never forgetting the tune this is quite simply the next step on Ritual’s progression to one of Britain’s best acts.
