RITUAL ‘Live’ Inside Out


Swedish progressive folk music maybe a limited genre but Ritual are certainly masters of it! This double live CD was recorded at various venues during 2004. Ritual’s music is certainly eclectic but all the more stronger and appealing for it. In vocalist Patrik Lundstrom (he also fronts Kaipa) they have a real gem, who performs some vocal wonders on the epic ‘Seasong of the Moomin Papa’ and one of their best songs ‘What Are You Waiting For’ – just marvel at the vocals and musical arrangements on this one. There is a superb acoustic folk medley, whilst ‘Explosive Paste’ sees the ban in full prog rock mode. The whole band have musical class and for someone who is not usually a fan of live albums I thoroughly enjoyed this one!

I could go on and on about this wonderful and very underrated band but I won’t suffice to say garb a listen to this and enjoy the marvellous music contained on it.
