I praised Ruin thanx to their last demo, “Ruin the world”. There’s a reason for that and if you haven’t checked them out just yet, I demand you do just that. Ruin’s definitely got their shit together here as well. 3 songs of furious fucken thrash metal that puts alot of bands in the corner of shame. I had a small complaint last time around, the 3 tunes clocked in on a total of 8 minutes. So, what do they do this time then?
They record 3 new tunes and make sure they clock in at 6 minutes instead of 8. Damn. Way to satisfy me, bastards.
With 6 minutes to devour and base a review on, you can imagine I won’t be writing an essay here… There’s no messing around in the Ruin camp. I don’t think the guys can even spell “mess around”. Ruin deliver their insane thrash with fantastic precision and don’t care for shit about leaving the listener with any room to recover from the assault. It’s just high velocity thrash metal through and through.
And that’s how I fucken dig it.
Competent musicians without a doubt and I take a great liking in Einar’s vocals. A perfect fit for this kind of muzak. As mentioned, 6 minutes of armor-piercing brutality that all of you should check out for a good beating. The production is fine as well.
Ruin deserves recognition.
