RUINS OF EARTH - UK NEW GUNS UNLEASH DEBUT EP & PREPARE FOR UK ONSLAUGHT!

HAMPSHIRE THRASH CREW NATIONALLY RELEASE THEIR DEBUT OFFERING ‘ASHES OF THE OCEAN’, THROUGH ALL GOOD DIGITAL OUTLETS ON 17th JANUARY 2011.



Having only been in the public eye since January 2009, Ruins of Earth are quickly climbing the ranks of the UK metal scene. Through shattering live shows that illustrate the boundless energy and candid delivery of the band, they are fast carving a name for themselves. And given the overcrowded nature of the current UK metal scene, this is no little feat. Ruins of Earth have both the innovation and drive to ascend the masses and are destined to be one of the strapping bands to break in 2011!

The lively metal scamps have already extensively toured throughout the UK, bagging tour slots with the likes of Viatrophy, Shadow Law, Osmium and Plague of Ashitaka. The quintet’s shows are sweat-drenched fleapit affairs that are both full-blooded and full-hearted. The Hampshire bruisers will hit the road again this Autumn in support of their explosive debut EP ‘Ashes of the Ocean’.

ROE’s debut offering ‘Ashes of the Ocean’ is nothing short of a mouth-watering piece of technically tinged thrash metal. From the EP’s namesake ‘Ashes of the Ocean’, through to the dynamic ‘The Serpent’s Curse’, the record is definitely a journey. With both soaring melodic passages and brutal breakdowns, throat-box Colin Russel manages to appositely scrape the bile from the guts of his soul. Aided and abated by Guitarists Daniel Smith and Andrew Wilson, who duel patiently with high velocity fret-flurries before dishing out repeated stinging blows, and bassist Fred McCauley, who impressively steadies the ship, as does Thomas Brooker, who adds brutal force with his jack-hammer style beats, the record spins and hurls out the decibels. All in all, these Southern metallers really do assault the auditory senses…..so soak it up and watch the band explode in 2011!
