“Ritual Abuse is psychologically ominous; a misanthropic brand of broody devil doom that’s at once dark and spacious… by the time the whole thing’s over, the room seems to smell like burning tube amp, there’s a wicked kink in my neck and my teeth feel loose.” – Decibel
“Thank Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, and a LOT of weed for making this band possible.” – Terrorizer
“five lumbering tracks of fuzzed out, sludged out doom” – Stonerrock.com
