Ruin - Drown in Blood (2017)
Ruin is supposed to have its roots back in 1991, reformed in 2015 and Drown in Blood is their first album and a very good one. Old school US death metal that is more about the gloomy, atmosphere, the putrid feel, the raw heaviness and the groove (they are especially good for the groove) than about being fast or technical. There's some blast and d d-beat but most of the time it is quite slow. A crawling monster of a death metal album. The songwriting is great and a few songs are really "cool" (well, in their gruesome way) and memorable (try not to headbang during "Nightmares in a void"!). The "nicely disgusting" vocals are also a good point. Highly Recommended! I'm pretty sure this one will end as one of my favourite death-metal album of the year.
