Reliably informed

High-flying modern metallers Rituals return with their long-anticipated sophomore release, fresh from the huge burst of acclaim that followed their debut, Awake. Even on first listen, it becomes abundantly clear why that aforementioned release afforded them support and acclaim from Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and Powerplay, with the pulverising blend of riffs, dynamics and power coalescing to result in one hell of a trip.

The brief length of the EP shows a very clear respect for quality over quantity, with the likes of lead single In Devastation providing a brilliant showcase for the quartet’s strengths. They consider this release to be the purest distillation of their evolution as songwriters, and it radiates through every hammer-on.
