S. Raul It is a great album mixed with melodic parts and heavy riffs. Favorite track: Cvltrvm.

Wxmaggot This album is the perfect mix of heavy and oppressive passages combined with light and ethereal atmosphere. The opening track, The Nymphs, is a precursor to the slow building style of the tracks on this album. Great clean singing at just the right times. The beautiful melodies that appear out of the dark matter make this an album that I keep coming back to. Buy with confidence and support these guys! Favorite track: Cvltrvm.

SamsaraT Rituals is where it all comes together for Plateau Sigma. Where the wave parts on their previous offerings could sound labored, Rituals sees clean singing used to great effect. There’s a groovy yet doomy vibe akin to old-school My Dying Bride; the monstrous shambling of Evoken; a zest of Type O Negative’s craftiness; and the subtle, rhythmical heaviness of modern sludge or early Alice in Chains. The Italians blend in their own brand of esotericism and emotional finesse. Very inspired and mature.

about

“Rituals”
an idea by Plateau Sigma
A recall and interpretation in “doom-metal/dark-wave” key of the rituality, the solemnity, the sensuality of the propitiatory rites of War, Death and Love in the ancient Greek-Roman cultures.
A liaison with and towards the past we belong to and are a part of, still, and that we should preserve with pride.
While each song is an Ode to a divinity of the Roman Pantheon, the album in its whole is dedicated to God Bacchus and in our modest opinion, we believe that Doom Metal is the best music genre to represent Dionysian atmospheres
