Blood Ritual is a musical theme composed by Klaus Badelt (with Hans Zimmer's assistance) for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. It appears as track twenty-two on the film's complete soundtrack.
The cue starts with a mysterious tune that starts to build (00:56) into a very strong climax (01:41).
