THE RITUAL
BEYOND THE FRAGILE HORIZON
BAKERTEAM

The Ritual is an Italian troupe that straddles the line between power metal and metalcore on their nine-track endeavor BEYOND THE FRAGILE HORIZON. Featuring bouts of rousing clean singing with a rash of thrash riffs and pounding percussion, this quartet’s style emulates a cross between Avenged Sevenfold and All That Remains (“Hysteria and Madness”) with a keen focus on melody from both on the vocal and guitar thrusting songs like “Nothing is the Same” and the ballad “Without” directly into power metal histrionics. While The Ritual is far from reinventing the wheel, their debut release displays a solid skill-set with a strong comprehension of modern melodic metal. –Mike SOS
