Arise and Ruin, The Final Dawn

Arise and Ruin, The Final Dawn

Murder and death never sounded so sweet! But don’t let Arise and Ruin fool you — this isn’t your average, everyday, run-of-the-mill metal band. This Canadian metalcore group, consisting of members Ryan Bauchman (vocals), Brent Munger (lead guitar), Greg Richmond (rhythm guitar), Ben Alexis (bass), and Derek Prince-Cox (drums), creates a mixture of European thrash with some American metal, fused together to form an adrenaline-fueled masterpiece.

The release of their debut album The Final Dawn hit shelves, appropriately enough, on Devil’s Night (Oct. 30th). This gritty and raw album sounds much like the band of the producer, Ken Susi of Unearth. With hits like “Bound By Blood” and “The Final Dawn,” it’s enough to make your bitter old grandmother crap her Depends!

As long as you can get past the over-killed Cookie Monster-like vocals — “C is for cookie…” — this album grows on you like a cancer.
