Product Description

Within The Ruins represent the pinnacle of what is possible when a band keeps their feet firmly rooted in the foundations of modern death metal,chews upon titbits of classic thrash and all the while reaches upward to grasp toward new creative heights of their own design with hunger,skill and confident craftsmanship.Within The Ruins set out to be faster,heavier and more accomplished with each release and their new album,Elite,achieves that goal,earning its title in spades.Audiences at South By Southwest,The Bamboozle,The New England Metal and Hardcore Festival and across the US on the Summer Slaughter festival tour as well as runs with a diverse list of bands that includes Shadows Fall,Impending Doom,August Burns Red,Carnifex and Emmure have come to know the Massachusetts based powerhouse for their intensity,dexterity and mind-blowing melding of multiple metal subgenres which somehow sounds uniquely their own.Weaned on the guttural sounds of Floridian death metal chaos,the blackened ice of frigid Norway,the New Wave of Swedish Death Metal,the Big 4,progressive Noisecore mathematics and birthed from the same Massachusetts stomping grounds as the architects of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal,Within The Ruins creates challenging,devastating and comprehensive heavy metal sounds that encompass everything they've been and everything they are looking to become.The musical chemistry projects birthed in the laboratory of Within The Ruins are decisively serious,but the boys in the group carry on the equally important metal tradition of having a good time,blending beer and riffs with easy going charm and camaraderie with other bands and their fans.Fun,craziness,partying and leaving dumbfounded smiles on the faces in the crowd remain high priorities in their crew.Within The Ruins are refreshingly authentic,feverishly committed and have proven that they will endure.Filled with power,deserving of utter respect,armed with concise compositions and technical might,Within The Ruins will not be stopped.

Eeeerm iv only heard 2 tracks and I'm utterly stunned. The brilliant technicality of the guitarist, the slick thudding drums and the old video game sounds. Freaking amazing!!

A new twist on what is already a signature style for Within The Ruins. 11 Aug. 2014
By Bone Monkey - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In February 2013, Within the Ruins released a technical, heavy album in Elite. It's now 2014, over a year later, and we have another full-length album. This will leave one thinking that either this band is simply spamming the market with their redundant melodies, or they are really passionate and are attempting reduce the curve to make their way to the top. Well, after several listens of their newest album Phenomena, it will be clear that the latter is more accurate.

This Massachusetts based band will soon be releasing Phenomena on July 22nd. With three EPs, and three other full-length albums already under their belt, the big question is, are we going to continue to get more of the same, or is this something new? This is not to say that all of Within the Ruins' previous albums sound the same, but they all have that distinct sound and feel. This does not totally go against them, but it does not help their progression either, which is an important component to all music. There is no need to despair, Phenomena has been able to embrace their targeted sound and technique while maintaining their technical approach and heavy performance. The end result: a well refined album with more surprises than one would expect.
Phenomena has landed the band in a great position as far as growth, potential, and progress. It has enhanced on the positive attributes of Elite, and ignored their less ambitious traits. The band has included more of a melodic flow, the songs have slowed down a tinge, and each track is much more memorable. This is exhibited clearly through the chorus of "Gods Amongst Men" and the synthesizer strategically placed throughout. This denotes their mature status as a band. The ever-strengthening bass seems to be prominently heavier, and the synthesizer seems to be more cleverly used as it adds to, but does not dominate their sound.

There are portions of this album that will surely surprise. Segments of vocals are considerably deeper and contain a more pungent broadcast. The fluctuations are rare, but the instances where the vocal attacks are on display, it only reaps a more powerful affect. The band continues with their technical monologues that contain jerky guitar solos and ambient synthesized segments. The newer alterations make these classic attributes shorter in length when compared to their previous record. This positively reflects on their progression in effort to not stagnate themselves with the ominous deathcore genre so many are quick to label Within the Ruins.

A few disheartening afflictions throughout this album is almost every song has sections of filtered out effects. This was common in past releases, but Phenomena seems to have severely embraced it. This artificial, repetitive feature gets a little old, and 2014 demands something innovative, not something that copies Bury Your Dead's "House of Straw" 10 second introduction. The vocals that we labeled as surprises earlier in this review could have been more ample throughout. This would have solidified the vocalist's prominence as a real manhandling machine, but the glimpses we get in Phenomena only leaves the listener wanting more diversity.

As a whole, the album has a more cohesive approach. It's well constructed, as each song is distinctly desirable, carrying with it its own signature while encapsulating the bands original approach to retain their sound. The journey through the album will only solidify their sound with that distinguishable Within the Ruins intonation. With that in mind, given their quick turnaround period since Elite, there could have been a greater effect in progression given another year to ferment.

friggin' awesome sound. But you have to have an open mind 4 Aug. 2014
By B-Mackin - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Perhaps the best to date from this band. Heavy metal with a fun technical twist. This album is the first of its kind with actual choruses unlike its predecessors. Which doesn't in any way take away from this bands previous work but rather brings a fresh and more structured feel to it. I received a leaked version for free and still bought this album because I dig it that much.

If you're looking to open up your mind and Horizon to a different kind of sound look no further. There's a Groove kind of metal to some of the tracks where as others are full out aggression with some methodically placed melodic and heavy breakdowns interchanged. Saw these guys live and they brought some great energy to the summer slaughter tour and were the only reason I bought tickets.

If you like heavy music and you like 8 bit video games you'll definitely like this. And it's a great price so even if you don't you're not losing much here. Can't wait to see what the future holds for this band.

Raising the bar for technical death metal 23 July 2014
By Midway 47 - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What an amazing album! If you're a fan of Within the Ruins, you know about what to expect but it's their best yet and has a few new elements. The way they've integrated some electronics just adds to the craziness, in a good way, and their offbeat timing is familiar but still fresh. They started using lower tuning on Elite but they have learned to use it even better on Phenomena. If you like technical death metal, you've got to check these guys out. I would describe their style as Dillinger influenced death metal with lower tuning.
Great Album 23 Feb. 2015

Great album, at first I regretted the buy because I thought I couldn't download the music to my computer. It took some effort but it turns out you can. You just have to download amazon software unfortunately. I love CDs, however its 2015 I have very little use for an actual cd anymore.
