The Ritual is the fifth album by the American thrash metal band Testament. It was released in 1992 on Atlantic/Megaforce Records. On September 29, 2017, Metal Blade Records released the album on vinyl for the first time in the US along with its follow-up album Low, limited to 1500 copies. The Ritual was the last studio album to include drummer Louie Clemente, and also guitarist Alex Skolnick's last album until he rejoined the band in 2005.

The Ritual Album Lyrics by Testament. The Ritual Lyrics (1992). Lyrics to the Full Album on one page). Say hello again, my friends I've got to go The ritual calls to me Silent insanity You really thought you'd never Be the one who bleeds It's all so clear to me now Why they can't see ?

Listen to The Ritual by Testament on Deezer.

Testament seems to have a winning formula on this album, and they don't deviate too far from it for the duration of the cd. However, they mix up their riffs, rhythm, and lyrics enough to keep things from getting monotonous. Strong tracks: So Many Lies The Ritual (think Phantom Stranger by Rob Zombie) Let Go of my World As the Seasons Grey Return to Serenity (a slow ballad that won't kill you slowly!) Weak tracks: the rest of the album is still pretty good.
