A dynamic journey through one's idolatry can be visceral and intense, yet beautiful and mysterious. That's what the song "Ritual", the new single by the band Skunk Oil is all about. Ranging from the dark moods and metaphors a band like Black Sabbath would create, to the honest rawness and in-your-face attitude Alice In Chains has, "Ritual" is the perfect balance between "tension and release," that makes it mysteriously beautiful and engaging.


Like a new man, healing what is left
Wonder if my stillness was my trap
So now I bring use my thrills to save us
And when I give, I'll give the best

So come by
This beautiful season
Don't say
There's something to hide
I'm digging this ritual

Deity's season, my worship is so kind
Sometimes I'll be your king, sometimes the beggar parasite
I am the "big man”, the rider of your stars
Sliding, spinning to the bottom of life

Come by
This beautiful season
Don't say
There's something to hide
It flows like a river
The blast ill of feelings
Don't say
Stains are my sign
I'm digging this ritual

My Deity of the season
Your sparks are on me
Your black eyes are pulling
Black hole pulls me in

Kindness of the season
Your spark set me free
Nasty is the listless
Black hole sucks me in

Under earth
The divine
That's why I've been preaching: "Your moth loves my worms"
Lost my pride
Please, fill me
Since then I've been spilling I'm full but in need
