Speaking about the EP, vocalist Lwis MacRae said: “This is the most we’ve pushed ourselves musically on a record. The EP stands as a statement piece with Marshall Records, and the heaviest, most melodic, and progressive work to date. It’s the proudest we have ever been as Rituals.”
“The EP is meant to take you on a journey through mental growth, views on the state of the world, as well as some straight up demonic content, glistening melodies, and brutally crushing riffs. It’s eleven minutes of pure orchestrated Northern Chaos. This is opening doors and avenues for where Rituals will take our sound.”
Ahead of the release of the EP, the band have released their new single, “Living Blind” which you can check out here.
Speaking about the latest single, the band said: “The release of Living Blind feels like a turning point in Rituals. Lyrically based on the lack of awareness for others issues, problems and grief. Living in a world in which people only take and fail to give to one an another.”
