Swamp Ritual - Ritual Rising

Oh yes indeedy - Swamp Ritual have delivered a thick, sonic brew
of stoner and doom which goes down a fucking treat. 

With riffs so catchy and groove-ridden that you want to start 
nodding instantly, the heaviness of the music makes sure that you do 
not forget the feeling of pervading creepiness that seeps through the songs. 

The clean vocals ensure the lyrics of the occult, drug worship and horror 
movies are heard and play an important part in establishing the 
atmospherics of this great album. Fuzz spreads its presence throughout 
(which of course is a good thing!) and combined with the general powerful 
and dark tones which the riffs are cranking out, make the tracks epic, 
majestic and crushing. 

Lead guitar is suitable distorted and has a psychedelic, stoned sound 
which just kills me. Mid-paced songs sit alongside slow burning prayers 
of destruction and due to the track order and song compositions, make
this a highly recommended album.
