Fell Ruin - To the Concrete Drifts Cassette
March 17, 2017
FELL RUIN is an ever evolving metal soundscape of dark, surreal narratives. "A potent combination of black metal, progressive metal, and heavy, grinding doom — ominous, perilous, and mesmerizing."
Their first full length, "To The Concrete Drifts", is a cathartic construct. An epic, existential lore centered by avant-garde architects creating their grand design. Succumbing to the trials, tribulations and adversities one faces in the pursuit of transcendence.

-Praise for To the Concrete Drifts-
"Too often does black/doom metal revel in the “pretty” sound of atmospheric black metal, most examples sounding more like a slowed down version of Wolves in the Throne Room’s ilk, but there are rare examples, much like Fell Ruin, of black metal’s angrier, more oppressive side, placed in a doomed setting."
"The complexity of the music, the massive structure of the songs, the ongoing switches between slow, heavy, burdensome doom and inciting black metal, punctuated with a wide variety of influences from an equally wide variety of genres keeps this one interesting throughout the entirety of the album."
