“Ramprasad's 'Ruinenlust' feels like a massive, angry elephant trudging through a lush forest; each chord being a step forward on their journey. Eventually, the creature escapes the trees and ancient stone temples jut from the earth. 'Ruinenlust' is heavy, yet melodic and aggressive, yet meditative, excelling in a grey area that few successfully tread.”
— Dylan Garrett Smith (fine-artist/printmaker)
“...it all comes together to create an overarching impression of oppressive tones and head-down rhythmic pummel. It’s fucking heavy...”
— JJ of theobelisk.net
"Ramprasad’s debut effort 'Ruinenlust' takes us on a short, yet
daringly adventurous and impactful sonic journey. The instrumental
music within these three tracks manages to merge elements of metal, sludge, hardcore, doom, and electronic."
— Anima Recordings

Fixed Ritual is a sonic assault of pure heaviness that is intent on destroying the eardrums. Flood Peak are mesmerising and talented,each song takes you on a journey through a metallic devastation of wonder. This album is a masterpiece,so get on board and listen to the flood that is coming.

This EP is an onslaught of seismic heaviness of post metal,blackened sludge riffage. Flood Peak are really starting to make a name for themselves,guess what,I'm a devoted fan of this stunning band. Darknight
