"Ritual" is The Black Dahlia Murder‘s best and most experimental record. One big change is the use of acoustic strings on this album, which creates a unique feeling. They also use a piano and acoustics to create a creepy horror movie kind of vibe before ripping your face off with some trem-picked riffing and blast beats. These changes are welcome and they break open a lot of new possibilities for the band.
