There's a special feeling you get inside when you're anticipating the sophomore release of a quality band. You're obviously still following them because something about their breakout effort stuck with you. Maybe it floored you to the point that you're foaming at the mouth for the next chapter. Or perhaps you thought it was "just ok" but are still curious as to whether or not the band has gotten any better in the interim. Either way, you want more.

I rather enjoyed Darkness Sustains The Silence's excellent mixing of doom, trad, death and stoner riffs to create an album that I continue to enjoy years later. Now they're back, tossing a fistful of grunge into the mix. Among The Ruins has a lot of the swell things I enjoyed so much topped off with an Alice In Chains vibe. Maybe a little less harsh, but (insert Alice In Betelgeuze joke here)'s Among The Ruins is a very enjoyable album.

Sounded a bit too soft on the first listen but I like it now - a bit like a gloomy Khemmis.
