Ritual to the Great Beast is the second EP from the deathgrind band Yeti.  The EP showed a progression of the band's sound, combining grindcore and doom metal to create a constantly shifting feeling of aggression and gloom.

Ritual to the Great Beast is considered a doom/grind classic, along with Urtek's We Hate.
