Menace Ruin - Discography

This Quebec’s duo came together in autumn 2006, when they began composing the songs that would form their debut recording, In Vulva Infernum, a scalding blast of synthesized power electronics, programmed drums and noise guitar boosted by amps, slamming against the sides of Geneviève’s frozen, Nico-esque siren vocals.
as if Hildegard of Bingen were recruited, by time machine, to join Black Sabbath. A mesmerising feast of dark metal noise which, like the best moments of Deathspell Omega, is laced with intense bursts of spiritual visions.

While the debut album “Cult of ruins”, took its starting point in a brutal cocktail of fast Black Metal and ear-shattering Harsh Noise the follow-up titled “The die is cast” stays true to the metal scene though it doesn’t aim for the sonic extremities. The tempo has been slowed down to heavy down-tempo and martial rythms.
