Here Lies Man - Ritual Divination

Four albums in and Here Lies Man's unique sound - a self described mix of Afrobeat and Black Sabbath remains vibrant and exciting. This latest offering, Ritual Divination places much more of an emphasis on the Black Sabbath side of the bands unique sound and leaves listeners in awe as Here Lies Man uncover new and distinct layers of heavy rock magic. This is a distinct record that really acts as a fruitful next step for the band and shows that even through the misery of 2021 great music was created to leave listeners utterly in awe. 

Ritual Divination is a thriller because of the swing alone. It's a delight to let yourself fall into the grooves of a track like 'Night Comes' with its distinct grooves and rhythm patterns. The songs are written with the riff as the central focus, in the grand tradition of Iommi himself, but they become transcendent thanks to the unique drumming. There are layers upon layers that fuel Ritual Divination and the weird magic within. The transcendent poetry of these tracks is mythical and Here Lies Man do a wonderful job of spreading the focus across the different distinct aspects of their sound. The end result is a record that fascinates and points towards bold new futures for the group. 

One can get endlessly lost in this record. The core concepts are fairly straightforward and familiar but the execution is consistently great. While the band may have really burst onto the scene with their 2016 debut, each subsequent album is an amazing step forward for the band hinting at unique new soundscapes. Ritual Divination is a truly engaging listen, make no mistake. Here Lies Man have managed to go thoroughly above and beyond, proving that they are a one of a kind force in the world heavy rock and encouraging listeners to delve ever deeper into their roots.
