Left In Ruins are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of hardcore punk, crust and power violence and this is a review of their 2013 album "Ghost" which was released by Ruins Records.
The album starts out with some bass guitars and distorted parts before going into a fast and heavy direction along with some screams as well as mixing slow, mid paced and fast parts together as well as some blast beats.
As the album progresses guitar leads are added to their fastcore assault along with some old school hardcore elements along with some grindcore elements and the music goes for more of a mid 90's hardcore direction while also adding in a good amount of 80's influences
Song lyrics cover everyday themes, while the production has a very raw, heavy and old school sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and all of the songs are very short and fast.
In my opinion Left in Ruins are a very great sounding mixture of hardcore punk, crust and power violence and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band and album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ghost" "I'm Bored" "The Heretic Son" and "Vicious Cycle". 7/5 out of 10.
