5 stars Nemrud's second studio album is brilliant, and the best they have ever done. After the concept album Journey of the Shaman, the band decided to do something more in line with what they had done previously as can be noticed by the use of spacey synths. There isn't a weak moment on this offering, and every passage of it is so memorable. The whole album is really like some sort of weird lucid dream i'm not sure how else to describe it. It's really atmospheric in my opinion, it really got me hooked with the opener "in my mind" and kept me in the loop till the "ritual" ends. Ritual is an incredibly strong record filled with fantastic songwriting and musicianship throughout, and if you've enjoyed any of Nemrud's debut work it's fair to assume you'll appreciate this album as well. Although there are a few flaws, they are small enough to not have any major impact on the quality of the album. Overall this is Nemrud's best album so far and is a high point in progressive music.
