Guitarist Paul Anop and bassist Kyle Hupp from Kansas (Spirit of the Stairs) joined with drummer Haakon Sjogren and guitarist Joe Johnson from Denver (Moore).

Toxic Ruin

For those looking for intense riffage! Pummeling speed! And blistering technicality! Toxic Ruin will fit your bill and hit you right in the sweet spot! The sound can be described as old school death metal with a touch of new school thrash, or even old school thrash metal with a pinch of death.

Founded in 2014 by original members, David Miller and Stephen Behrendt, Toxic Ruin has been hard at work ever since, playing all over the Midwest, producing a full length album, and constantly writing new material for future releases. The current line up consists of the two founding members, and guitarists Jake Baneck and Blake Toltzmann. This four piece metal monstrosity is unlike anything else from the northern Midwest area. Calling the Lake Michigan shores of Sheboygan, Wisconsin home, Toxic Ruin is following the trail of several previous Metal acts of Wisconsin, such as Realm, Lazarus A.D., and the legendary Morbid Saint.
