Ruins, one of Australia's more recent Black Metal band that has been supporting bands on their Aussie tours this past year with the likes of Satyricon and Nevermore to name a few. This duo featuring Alex Pope on Vocals/guitars and Dave Haley (of Psycroptic fame) on drums, and have so far made two releases; an EP - "Atom And Time" and a full length - "Spun Forth As Dark Nets", with recording and production on a third set to be released in 2007.

The bands works are well produced black metal, with a bit of technical drumming thrown in thanks to Dave's influence of his style. I ablsolutely love the style of the vocals, they have a strong power behind them which Alex pulls of live just as good. Im quite a big fan and im really looking forward to the new album.

Not bad at all, but not really anything special. I love the drums, but the vocals aren't that special to me. I think I prefer them a bit more 'raw', or at least a bit different. This is kinda average.

That's only my opinion, of course.

Saw them supporting Satyricon and I loved them. Some of the most brutal live drumming I've ever heard.

REVIVE!!!

They've been playing a few shows lately, and with that been adding some new tracks to their live preformance set. Sounds pretty good too, reminds me a little of Satyicon, but they still stand out as their own band.

Supporting Celtic Frost in Melbourne too for Aussie fans. SUPPORT!!

I got the promo of the album somewhere... I like it, it's just accessible enough for someone who's not a devoted BM fan but at the same time it's still brutal and not cheesy. The songs are good and all.

I know I got interested in this band because it had two members of The Amenta, which is an Australian band I like a lot I also found the album title was pretty cool (yeah i'm a superficial person).

Haha, I kow those guys, the Haley borthers. Their dad (one of my old high school teachers) lent me a copy of the promo because they knew I was a fan Psyroptic. Had to give it back though.

Agreed! Drumming is sick live but me being a guitarist i'd have to say kudos to the sound crew < i saw them open for immortal and everything was spot on < it was like listening to the album with a touch more clarity but with bass a vibrations traveling through me allmost tearing me a new arsehole < excellent stuff.

I agree with Lucas. Been listening to them the past few days and they do their sound very well but it's all a bit too listenable and clinical for my taste. They need to take a few more risks in their sound. Regardless I know a lot of people who've been putting 'Cauldron' as their album of the year so they must be doing something right.
