FUTURE RUINS – s/t LP
Release Date: April 2012
Pressing: 500 total; US version: 100 on Swamp Green/Silver A-Side B-Side w/ Bronze splatters
This is a crushing debut full-length by FUTURE RUINS, a five-piece metallic crust outfit hailing from various parts of Sweden (Skåne/Göteborg/Stockholm). There are similarities from their previous incarnation of MASSMORD, however along with the name change came a more complex shift in songwriting. The result is an invariably tight hardcore punk/metal hybrid painted across a lyrically dystopian backdrop. This a wall of crash laden d-beat crust and some remarkably dark and melodic breakdowns all moving at a breakneck pace. Recorded and Mastered by Ulf Blomberg at Hobo Studios, this has a very classic Swedish death metal production sound while retaining some essential rawness. A co-operative release with Halvfabrikat (SWE), Social Bomb (DE), and Aborted Society (US).
