'This is Industrial simplicity in its purest form. Debut album from German artist Bipol finds legendary label Ant Zen Recordings back in the great tradition of harsh rhythmic Iudustrial. Even though Bipol doesn't belong to the harshest spectre of the Industrial-scene, there is still plenty of rumbling noises drifting in the sub-levels to keep listeners of abrasive electronics fully entertained. The rhythm textures are the main ingredient on the album, quite often with touches of early EBM-expressions transformed into 21st century Industrial attack. Hence the title "Ritual", Bipol focuses on repetitive expressions on the album resulting in an excellent trippy style. With a mixture of distorted beats and dark atmospheric soundscapes, Andreas Brinkert a.k.a. Bipol has created twelve floor-filling no-holds-barred club tracks. Despite the album's screaming for some physical performance of the consumer, "Ritual" also works well in the state of more passive listening. A very promising debut indeed!'
