Ruin Lust are a band from new York that plays a bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Sacrifice" which was released by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
Apocalyptic soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier musical direction along with the songs also adding in some dissonant structures at times. Black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats and war metal elements can also be heard.
Bestial growls are also utilized at times while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody and as the album progresses the soundscapes also make a brief return before returning back to a heavier direction and on the later tracks is also long and epic in length, melodic guitar leads can also be heard briefly.
Ruin Lust plays a musical style that takes war, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover war, death and occultism themes.
In my opinion Ruin Lust are a very great sounding bestial mixture of war, black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacrifice" and "Mirrors Of broken Blood". 8 out of 10.
