VIVE LA FRANCE! France is living today a death metal explosion with a bunch of fantastic bands but I said this some months ago in occasion of my review about Venefixion. These Ritualization are a fundamental part of this explosion also because, in a certain sense, they have anticipated it being formed even in 2006. Despite this and after changing their logo (now their logo is truly amazing!), they released only recenlty their debut album, besides through the German Iron Bonehead Prod with the cover artwork made with the sulphur by Chris Moyen aka Thorncross. And do you know what I think? That these 11 long years into the ranks were very useful to Ritualization to create slowly their own sound and their own loyal following for an incredible ballsy album! If all the bands could have this kind of mentality instead than recording the debut album after only 6 months of existence, I think this world would be a better place to live haha!
