LISTEN TO “GODS AMONGST MEN” HERE:
â€œWhen we released our last album, we felt like we had finally found what we were wanting to do since we started the band,â€ 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, â€œWeâ€™ve been known for technical, faster metal. But itâ€™s the type of stuff thatâ€™s tough for someone to listen to if theyâ€™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.â€
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, â€œOur fans really embraced our last album. This one completely tops it.â€
