Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - 6/92, p.72
Recommended - "..The band has replaced [thrash's] inherent redundancy and manic speed with well-constructed songs relentlessly pelted with cool riffs...melodic thrash metal masterfully sandblasted.."
Entertainment Weekly - 5/29/92, p.64
"..they've slowed the music down a few RPMs and added subtlety to the arrangements.." - Rating: B

On The Ritual, Testament moved away from their trademark speed-metal and began exploring slower, heavier territory. Instead of sounding like a retreat, the group sounds re-energized by the change in direction, as guitarist Alex Skolnick spits out a series of brutal riffs that manage to form memorable, powerful songs. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
