Ruins / Usnea 7" split

Because guitars are good: I give you the Ruins / Usnea 7" split. I'd say this is for people that like their music heavy, gritty, and slightly psychotic. It has a creepyness factor of 11. It's something that would play in the background of Supernatural. If Dean Winchester moved to the 2000s and embraced modern music, this is what he'd listen to. Ruins contribution to the 7" split "Discrimin" is heavy in an oppressive type of way. The guitars bore into your soul. "Discrimin" sheds some of the heaviness and meanders into a wild cacophony of sound that is both pleasing and scary. So much happens in this song, it's impossible to just listen to it once. I suggest listening over and over and over again.. in a darkened room... on 11.

Usnea's "Only The End of the World" is just that. A lamentation of the ending. It's depressing and bleak. It's truly doom metal at it's finest.

The 7" split won't be released until June 3rd. Fans in the USA can pick it up from Milwaukee label Halo of Flies and EU fans head to German label Twisted Chords. In the meantime, you can listen to it over at Cult Nation. Stream of Ruins / Usnea 7"


Accompanied by a digital release, 1000 copies of the 7" split will be pressed, 850 on black and 150 on clear with special packaging.
