Lies The Ruined
Farrago Records, 2006)
by Cardinal Cox
Dope on Pnuk part 21
The Ruined are a local punk semi-supergroup,
having its members drawn from bands Up, No Alibi, Hands Down and
State Of Freedom. They have been playing their raucous (with the
emphasis on both Raw and Rock) Horror-Punk for nearly two years.
In that time they've gigged around the country, and released a
couple of singles (the last split with elder local punk semi-supergroup
Destructors666). In Spring 2007 they are due to be supporting The
Shocker on a national tour. In advance of that they released this
8 track mini-album.
Two of the tracks ('City Of The Dead' and 'She Must Die') were
previously released on the afore-mentioned split-single, though
the new versions are more polished. The new tracks continue the
themes of zombie youth in a braindead world. The planet is in the
grip of a horror film, after all, and no-one can find an ending
that won't lead to eternal sequals.
The music from the frenetic five piece is toe-tapping, bonce-nodding,
bouncy, arm waving stuff. Join the Skeleton Crew on their
lurching towards domination.
