This album was a bit weaker than CDR. The latter's cataclysmic drag vibe, its soul-crunching intensity, is pretty much what made Ritualz great. The former, while it contained some signature of Ritualz' style, didn't contain enough - the tracks (with some exceptions) on this album were a lot weaker, and didn't do much to pull the listener in. Overall, I was fairly disappointed with the release. This represents for Ritualz a move sideways, not upwards.

Agreed. Very uniform tracks. The saw synth + hip hop beat sound for me is becoming such a generic part of "witch house". So many artists are doing it (i.e. Blissed Out) and I'm afraid this genre will hit a brick wall. That said, people like Fostercare, I††, ^, ∆AIMON, oOoOO, Modern Witch, etc. keep pushing it with a unique sound that defies the category. Maybe though I'm saying this because Ritualz in some ways was one of the originators of this type of music? So maybe normal he continues in that vein. And personally I come from an industrial/experimental/techno/goth background so my view is probably distorted.
