Within the Ruins: Phenomena

New England powerhouse WITHIN THE RUINS have debuted an all new song by way of lyric video titled “Gods Amongst Men.” The track is the first onslaught of music from their highly anticipated LP Phenomena due out July 22, 2014. The band wants fans to be rest assured that more thought and tact was put into this release than any of their predecessors.


“When we released our last album, we felt like we had finally found what we were wanting to do since we started the band,” explains guitarist Joe Cocchi. This is the first time we’ve heard new music from the band since their previous effort Elite, which came out early last year. Cocchi continues, “We’ve been known for technical, faster metal. But it’s the type of stuff that’s tough for someone to listen to if they’re not into a very, very specific sub-genre.” The challenge we gave ourselves with Phenomena was to come up with something even better in a shorter amount of time, to really take advantage of the momentum.”

The band is already off to the races paving out it’s tour schedule like a surgeon’s scalpel. Within The Ruins will be out in full force on this years SUMMER SLAUGHTER TOUR and will be out with Lorna Shore before then. View all dates here. When we asked Joe what fans can expect he stated, “Our fans really embraced our last album. This one completely tops it.”

Those who pre order Phenomena via iTunes will receive two tracks right away, “Gods Amongst Men” and “Calling Card.” An array of pre-orders are also available which include hats, shirts, posters and beer koozies.
