Ruins is at the forefront of the Australian metal scene, the band have toured extensively throughout the country with acts such as Immortal (Norway), Satyricon (Norway), Celtic Frost (Switzerland) and Absu (USA); in the process building up a sizeable and loyal fan base.
Formed in 2002, RUINS are from Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. They blend ominous dark-death metal dynamics; powerful, menacing, melancholic, yet eerily seductive black metal styles; diverse and intense rhythmic structures; and both venomous and summoning vocal presence.
The writing/recording nucleus of RUINS consists of guitarist/vocalist Alex Pope, formerly of the post-punk noise-rockers SEA SCOUTS; and drummer Dave Haley, currently also drumming with PSYCROPTIC. Both have also recorded and performed with THE AMENTA, and various other groups and projects over the last decade. Dave's brother Joseph Haley is delivering the darkest riffs on the new album.
The new album "Undercurrent" is a new beginning. A reexamination of the thematics in which we have worked for the first four albums. RUINS have achieved a higher order of refinement, after nearly three years in production.
As the title suggests, it presents an ominous and forboding sense, looming within a strict and powerful framework.
In a flooded market, populated by predominantly superfluous material, RUINS with the vital, timeless and true feeling of black metal.
The album is a must for fans of Satyricon, Immortal, Emperor and Burzum, It will go down as one of the premier metal releases in the history of Australia.
