One of Germany's best bands in this day and age is The Ruins Of Beverast. With their amazing debut they already conquered my heart, and hopefully I was not the only one. "Rain Upon The Impure" is the follow up from that grand debut album and displays a little change of style. Of course, when one takes a look at the impressive discography of Alexander Von Meinenwald, the sole member of Ruins.., he would have expected already that the new album would not just be a blatant rip-off from the debut.

This is my beloved work of Alexander and one of the best black metal albums I've ever heard. I don't blame the production... All you have to do is increase the volume of your speakers. An unforgettable journey.

That being said, I'd still like to hear a remastered version without the pressed production. I find turning the volume up isn't as effective as it could be as the levels are too indistinct.

Awful production keeps me from finishing this, let alone enjoying it. Why couldn't it have sounded like the two albums between it?

The production really hurts my ears in many moments. Increasing the volume just upsets them more. I must be a scrub.

Same here. It's really what has always kept me from enjoying this 100%. Increasing the volume actually only makes it worse, it almost feels like it hurts my beloved speakers.

This album is darkness incarnate. Just incredible. The production might be lackluster, but in the end, that is hardly the most important part. Every song, everything about this work is perfect. Probably the only atmospheric BM album I enjoy more then Lurker Of Chalice.

Had no issues with the muddy production. Monumental album, one of the finest examples of (modern) black metal.

Great album. I listened to it like seven times now (would have been much more often but it's stupidly long so it takes some time to listen to it in a row) and it always leaves me sitting with closed eyes feeling extremely uncomfortable and moved at the same time. That's the feeling I want to get when I listen to Black Metal.

Vinyl rip. Some tangible improvements to the CD versions, mostly notably the lead guitar and vocals which come through much stronger and louder. Generally far less muddy. Definitely the definitive version.




There's also an extra track on the end, an Unholy cover called 'Neverending Day'.

Cool, now that it doesn't sound like garbage, it actually sounds pretty good.

I don't think it's ideal, but I've certainly heard a lot worse.

Oh it certainly isnt ideal but it in my opinion it suits the atmosphere and the music just fine. I think with clearer production I wouldnt enjoy it as much as I do.
