“These unsettling and depressing times contributed to the change in Ritual Dictates’ sound. That, and working full time graveyard shifts in a crematorium during a global pandemic. And through it all I listened to an abundance of music, drunk what seemed to be bottomless wine, and wrote ‘No Great Loss‘.”

He continued:

“‘No Great Loss‘ opens with ‘Burn The Widow‘. It feels appropriate to premiere this song first, mainly because it captures much of the vast musical influences heard throughout the album. It’s also the shortest song on this record, which makes it less tedious for someone who can’t bear more than 3:52 of our music.”

No Great Loss” track listing:

01 – “Burn The Widow
02 – “My Solitude
03 – “Goth And Exhausted
04 – “Aqua Tofana
05 – “Autumn Song
06 – “Succumbing To The Ravages Of Age

Pre-orders for the record will be up tomorrow, July 08th via Bandcamp.
