Ritual is the eleventh album by Soulfly, released on October 19, 2018 through Nuclear Blast. It is the third Soulfly album with Max Cavalera's son Zyon behind the drum kit and features musical guests Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Ross Dolan of Immolation and Mark Damon of The Pretty Reckless. Four singles were released from the album—"Evil Empowered", title track "Ritual", "Dead Behind the Eyes", and "Under Rapture". The album was produced by Josh Wilbur. Max Cavalera published the statement and said "For this one, we really tried to retain the groove of early Soulfly as well as my love for the heavy, fast stuff I'm into: like death and black metal and some hardcore. Working with Josh Wilbur for Soulfly this time around has been amazing. He's a huge fan and added a lot to the record. I would fight for the fast songs and he would always push me to add more groove. I think in the end we created a really cool mix of songs that covers a lot of ground in my career." Ritual sold 3,600 copies in its first week of release in the US.
