Ritual Of Consumption

Total Fucking Blood

Ritual Of Consumption

On “Ritual of Consumption”, TFB displays a kind of entrancing repetition that they hinted at on earlier releases. While this album contains plenty of their signature explosive thrashers (Last Acre Burns, Bonus Hole), the band explores the meditative possibilities of their singular heaviness without veering into cliched drone- or doom-metal pitfalls. From the bombastic chord progression that centers the title track to the monolithic chaos of “Noble Strains”, TFB uses restraint in the service of heaviness and only heighten the effect when they dig in and completely explode the wheels off the thing.
