Search Results for "Within The Ruins"

I have to admit I wondered, like many, if Steve Tinnon could fill Tim’s big shoes as vocalist in beloved technical metalcore stalwarts WITHIN THE RUINS. They are one of the metalcore bands I have most enjoyed over the years and have plugged often in various publications. Happy to report that this new material is massive and as crazy as ever. I cautiously say it, but “Black Heart” might even be the catchiest song they have ever written with HUGE potential due to this head snapping riffage like Within The Ruins channeled “Thunderstruck” on meth and just an unbelievable level of confidence projected by the whole group! It’s maniacal and will make fans optimistic again about the group’s future. Tinnon seems downright possessed.

Here’s hoping when shows return that they still incorporate older material in the live set as well, though. Gotta mix it up!

The track comes by way of the band’s impending full-length of the same name, set for release via Entertainment One (eOne) / Good Fight Music on November 27th. A lot of music writers are gonna be scrambling to add this to some lists, I’ll wager.

Black Heart will be released on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorder options, visit THIS LOCATION.

Comments Tinnon of the track and accompanying video, “We’re extremely excited to release the video for the title track to our new album, Black Heart! We really enjoyed making this one and getting to tell a bit more of the story behind the music. It’s a very angry, personal song, and a lot of the tracks stem from what it’s about. It’s an important track in regards to the overall theme of the record, and we couldn’t be happier with how the video turned out!”

The 4 Faves of July (Jessica)

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, August 3, 2018 at 4:19 PM (PST)

July was a hectic month for me. I spent a week out of town, I finished up a summer class, and the past few days I’ve been playing a lot of Crash Bandicoot. But as always, I’ve tried to compile a list of the albums that I thought were the best of the best for the month. This month’s list was a little harder to get together than previous months, there were some misses I wasn’t expecting to miss, and not as many ones I hitting that I didn’t expect to make up for it. The following list is in no particular order.

1. First on the list, the one that was a surprise for me, is Bongripper’s Terminal. In the age of sludge, grunge, post-, noise doom metal it’s always nice to hear something truly, seismically heavy and slow. The two songs on this album are “Slow” and “Death” and they have a combined playtime of 43 minutes. As I prepare for another hectic academic year of getting my ass kicked by grad school, I’m excited that in moments when I need to slow down, I’ll have Terminal to drag me along. All the better with fall imminent. Head over to Bongripper’s Bandcamp to stream Terminal, where you can download it at “name your own price.”

2. Any list I make isn’t going to be complete without at least one -core album, and this one will have three! The first is Bury Tomorrow‘s Black Flame. This album is pretty standard metalcore fare, chugging and riffing along, interchanging between clean and growled vocals. The title track probably stands out the most for me.

3.  Next on the list is Chelsea Grin‘s Eternal Nightmare. Ever since Suicide Silence’s self-titled album last year, I’ve been hungry for good deathcore stylings (not that this is a stab at Suicide Silence, I always support bands pursuing the sounds they want to go for, it just wasn’t for me). Chelsea Grin offer pretty great deathcore with this album. Though this album features an iteration of Chelsea Grin without any of the founding members, former Lorna Shore vocalist, Tom Barber, the newest edition to the band, brings a fantastic performance. My favorite track off the album is “See You Soon.”

4. Last on the list is Within The RuinsWorld Undone EP. This two song EP follows the band’s release last year of Halfway Human. Within The Ruins’ style of proggy metalcore is about the only way I get into prog metal. Check out the EP’s title track.

Within The Ruins is one of our favorite weirder metalcore bands around here, always tweaking their core sound to push their boundaries further skyward. Halfway Human, their latest, is a solid follow up to the mind blowing guitar work on Phenomena that finds the band working a bit better as a full group while still remaining technically fierce and fun. Honestly kids, with Dillinger heading out to pasture you fans of technical metalcore and hardcore better hope WTR and Car Bomb stick around and keep us guessing what will come next.

Today we can say for sure that a tour is coming next as well as a new video for “Incomplete Harmony” which you can check out HERE or below.

“We’re extremely excited to announce a full U.S. headliner tour with some great supporting bands,” says guitarist Joe Cocchi.

The band is also debuting the aforementioned all new live music video for their track “Incomplete Harmony.” Directed by Bobby Bates, this is the third music video we’ve seen from Within The Ruins since the release of their latest release.

Within The Ruins will be playing the “Ataxia” instrumental in its entirety on this run, and will offer additional surprises as well. “We’ll be performing some instrumental material live for the first time ever. On top of the ‘Ataxia’ instrumental medley, we’ll be throwing in a bunch of older material from our first few albums. Come out to a gig and bang your heads!”

Poughkeepsie, NY shook as Suicide Silence and Emmure packed the house and cracked concrete for the Stronger Than Faith Tour. The rowdy show featured adrenalized performances met with major enthusiasm from the mixed age crowd (though full of young fans primarily). Frankie from Emmure was still suffering throat problems and sat this one out, seeming really bummed as he told the near capacity crowd he couldn’t sing their set. I thought it was the guy who fronts Emmure’s NYC buddies Sylar who filled in at first but was told a bit later it was the controversial bands tour manager stepping in. The crowd supported wholeheartedly and people were flipping out and singing along nonetheless.

I honestly heard several people say it was the best show they’d ever gone to there. While it was a good show it didn’t come near the balcony kamikaze jumper insanity of Soulfly/Incubus over a decade ago or some of the nutsballz Gwar, Hatebreed or All Out War shows I’ve seen there over the many years I’ve been attending concerts at the theater.

But yeah, it was a fired up night for metalcore fans. Openers Fit For An Autopsy had the heaviest set besides Suicide Silence (who seriously brought in this first time I got to witness them live since Mitch died). FFAA were clearly hungry and delivered a death heavy performance with particularly satisfying bass fluidity from Shane Slade.

I was most excited probably to see Within The Ruins who have one of the best guitarists in metal. They recently survived a snowy van crash and Tim Goergen still had his arm in a sling when off stage. The Westfield, MA band didn’t dissapoint though, bringing Dillinger-worthy technical madness to the masses.

Suicide Silence’s Eddie Hermida really owned the night, though. Hermida told a heckler that “if you want to see All Shall Perish go to an All Shall Perish show”, his new band bearing down with crushing forward momentum as the pit swelled.

One of my favorite modern metal bands Within The Ruins might have to change their name to Within The Wreckage after a nasty van accident. Don’t worry, the dudes are ok. The van and trailer went off an interstate in Pennsylvania yesterday afternoon. While no one was hurt, their van, trailer and gear were completely destroyed. “We rolled about three times from what I can remember and landed on the median. Our van and trailer are totaled.” says guitarist Joe Cocchi.

The band had set sail from their hometown in MA on their way to California to begin a month-long tour with SUICIDE SILENCE along side label-mates FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. Despite the near death experience and loss of gear, the band will push on and make the third show scheduled at El Corazon on Friday, February 20th in Seattle. Cocchi continues, “All I can say is that we’re happy to be alive. I don’t know how, but none of us were injured. We’re on the road touring because this is all we know and love, and we want to continue. Help us get back on our feet by picking up a shirt. Thank you all for the continued support.”

These dudes are killer live and on recording, just way more interesting than most metalcore and Joe in particular played his ass off on last years Phenomena.

More pics of the wreck, a Go Fund Me link to help them replace gear and some music are BELOW.

Within The Ruins continue to make some of the spazziest, heaviest and actually exciting metalcore around. One of the best bands on the scene. they put many “peers” to shame. The drive and vision of Within The Ruins shows exponential growth with each album (though I am still really partial to Invade). The guitar work on this new single “Gods Amongst Men” alone is fucking stellar and will shock you at times. Crazy textures, amazing solo sections and some wacky sci-fi sounds atop some accessible mega mosh parts and some tech wizardry…this tune is a great indicator of the show stopping Phenomena they are about to drop on July 22nd. Between this, the new Origin tune and watching with guilty pleasure as Eva Green screwed an invisible devil on Penny Dreadful‘s 5th episode, it has been a nice day.

New England veterans WITHIN THE RUINS have announced the release of their fourth LP, PHENOMENA out July 22, 2014. The new effort will be the followup to the highly successful Elite full length released early last year. Elite was well received, Decibel Magazine called their sound “brutal yet harmonious, two traits few bands nowadays can handle simultaneously.” Metal Hammer plainly stated, “Precise, brutal and bursting with great songs, this fucking rips.” 

“We took six months off over the winter too eat, sleep and breath this album. It was by far the most in depth we’ve ever gone in the writing process. ” says guitarist Joe Cocchi. Within the Ruins recently posted an exclusive studio report with Gear Gods that sheds more light on the blood, sweat and tears the band has poured into this release. Cocchi continues, “Since the inception of this band our attitude has always been to completely trump our previous efforts in every aspect, and I think we did just that. We’re beyond stoked for people to hear this one.

The band just wrapped up dates supporting Whitechapel and Carnifex, highlighted by a knockout performance at the 2014 NEW ENGLAND METAL AND HARDCORE FESTIVAL.
