Music for Ritual was recorded in early 2011 in Detroit, MI with Mark Lewis (Deicide, All That Remains, Whitechapel) and the band producing with vocals and mixing taking place at Orlando, Florida based studio, Audio Hammer with Jason Suecof (BDM, Beneath the Massacre, Job for a Cowboy, All That Remains).

In its first week of release Ritual landed at the #29 spot on the Billboard Top 200, #6 on the Billboard Top Independent Album, #4 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums and #9 on the Billboard Rock Albums Chart. The record entered the UK's Rock & Metal Chart at #20 and #38 in the Indie Chart making Ritual the band's strongest first week release in the UK.

In addition, Ritual came in at #32 on Canada's Top 200 Chart, #5 on the Independent Charts and #4 on the Hard Charts.
