RUINS OF EARTH - EXPLOSIVE SOPHOMORE EP

RUINS OF EARTH “This Hampshire quintet show incredible maturity for such a young band.

Every song on this five-track EP
is a beastly mix of technicality & groove” Metal Hammer 8/10


HIGH FLYING HAMPSHIRE THRASH CREW GIVE AWAY
THEIR STUNNING EP, ’MISGUIDED LIFEFORMS’ FOR
A LIMITED TIME FROM 8th AUGUST 2011.

Southern metallers ’Ruins Of Earth’ are quickly carving a prominent name for themselves within the UK metal scene. By delivering shattering live shows that illustrate boundless energy and earnest passion, the driven quintet are intent on pushing themselves into the national arena and are all set to destroy every flea-pit along the way.

Ruins Of Earth have already extensively toured throughout the UK, impressively notching up over 150 shows in a little over a year, and in the process, bagging tour slots with the likes of Viatrophy, Shadow Law, Osmium and Plague of Ashitaka. ROE’s shows are sweat-drenched affairs that are both full-blooded and full-hearted. The Thrashcore crew will hit the road yet again this Summer in support of their bone-crushing ’Misguided Lifeforms’ EP.

Ruins Of Earth’s debut offering ‘Ashes of the Ocean’ racked up national critical acclaim in Metal Hammer, Powerplay, Rocksound and Zero Tolerance, and tracks from the record also picked up heavy radio rotation with XFM Rock Show and Total Rock Radio. Now fully equipped with an explosive follow-up in the shape of ’Misguided Lifeforms’, the young guns are set to raise the bar once again. ’Misguided Lifeforms’ is loaded with soaring melodic passages and brutal breakdowns, weaving technically tinged thrash metal with gritty deathcore. Ruins of Earth make their way from melody to brutality with practiced ease, orchestrated and solidified through alluring lyrical content. The five-piece display their ability to fuse and meld genres, delivering memorable and intelligent songs distilled from a range of influences stemming from The Black Dahlia Murder and Cult of Luna to the likes of Sylosis.

Balancing passion with aggression, whilst maintaining their renowned high level of musicianship, Ruins of Earth bring fire and spirit to the stage in support of their aggressive music, a nostalgic feat all too missed in today’s metal bands who seem to lack the same passion and energy. Through their live shows, ROE display their ability to draw from a vast array of styles, setting themselves apart from other bands restricted to a recycled musical vocabulary. Establishing themselves as a band “not to be missed live,” Ruins of Earth are destined for great things in 2011.
