|Four great songs on this album but that is about it. Alex Skolnick and Louie Clemente bring Testament into a different musical direction.

|This record was a bit hard to listen to when it first came out back in 1992. AT the time, all the metal fans screamed sell out. Which, I guess had this formula been successful they would have continued to "soften" their sound up. In any event, I find this record to be very "good" and a good listen every now & then. "Electric Crown" is excellent! Pick this up used soemwhere, you won't be disappointed.

|First Metallica did it, then (of course!) Megadeth did it. Anthrax got a new singer and did it too. Even Exodus gave it a whirl. Whew! It must've been tough being a thrasher in '92, all your bands were changing their sound, chasing airplay and packed arenas. Maybe people saw The Ritual as Testament's Black Album because they were primed and dreading the next disappointment. Testament slowed things down, sure, but nothing is as overtly commercial as an "Enter Sandman" or "Black Lodge." "Return To Serenity" is a typically broooding Testament ballad, and got them a small bit of airplay in early '93, and I do remember hearing 'Electric Crown" a few times on the radio as well, but on a metal station, not on AOR radio. A loIt's a good disc, but not among the top releases from the band. Could've been their death knell, but--at least creatively--the band made a huge comeback with Low and, later, The Gathering.
