Marcel H. : When it comes to Sabbath Assembly’s previous two albums I really do enjoy them a lot. However, after a zillion spins ‘Rites Of Passage’ still leaves me cold. Everything about this album is boring. The music, but especially the vocals, which really works on my nerves with that nagging boring tone. What happened to Sabbath Assembly? I for one will run for ‘Ye Are Gods’ and ‘Sabbath Assembly’ right now. Yes, it is still that so-called occult rock, but unfortunately of extremely average quality. There will, however, be hordes of people that will take to this album like bees to honey. If anything has become clear over the past couple of years it’s that fans of this genre will think almost anything that is released within the genre is great.
