Within The Ruins - Invade (Review)

Within The Ruins is a American metalcore band. They have so far released 1 EP and 2 full length albums, with their latest being Omen in 2011, and also signed to victory records.

Within The Ruins adopts a very unique style in my opinion, with their sort of jumps between low notes and high notes, but I already forgot the scale in which they write their songs, but it too was different. So the one interesting thing about the band is the use of such different writing, with the interesting style and different us of scales.

The songs are written to a sort of intermediate difficulty, but I wouldn't call it quite to difficult as their songs usually involve harmmer ons and pull offs with some nice fast riffing. But don't get me wrong, there is always a part in a song which just comes off difficult to play. So guitar wise the songs are written quite nicely and technically with an odd sort of melody to it. Vocals are the sort of, lower then a fry sort of scream and generally stay constant with that which I don't always like, as his scream isn't my favourite. Drums are quite nice in this album and are pretty well done. The album is mixed quite nicely and really crisp so the quality is assured in this album.

Song wise they sound quite similiar at least to me as each song seems to adopt the same style and doesn't deviate that much from it, at least to me that telling the difference between songs can be a little tricky. But still the songs are quite enjoyable and I respect the unique style that the band adopts.

Nice to see some folks that take an interesting approach. From what I've seen, they do sound rather similar, so hopefully they can work on differentiating that in the future. But very nice overall.

I know this has NOTHING to do with your current post, but I just gotta let you know...

I swear to friggin' god, I can't get that "I WANT TO SEE YOU CRY, BITCH!" line outta my head ever since you posted up the Defiler - Cryomancer song.

Just...can't get that line outta my head!
